His passion for cars went from competitive drag racing in his earlier days; (winning many trophies) to repairing/painting and meticulously maintenance of all his vehicles with great appreciation for all things automobile.  Homer loved his dogs, from his first Mitzi to Jasper and all of those in between.  He enjoyed visiting the animal shelters.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Abouzelam, Dr. Enoh, and the entire cardiac and rehab departments.  Because of their skill and dedication we were blessed with 6 additional years with Homer.
