  • Jennifer Simsek says:

    He will be remembered as my granddaddy, a man loved by everyone, always full of life, great sense of humor, and he brought a lot of fond memories to my life as his granddaughter. He loved to take me for icecream as a child and pretend to drive crazy on the way home to make me laugh. Always wanting me to play certain songs for him on the piano. Mostly, I will remember how loved he was by everyone and how he loved people. He had a big heart and always made me smile and laugh.
    I will always remember you, love jenny.

    My uncle Homer was one of the most generous men that I have ever encountered. I have fond memories of working at the flower shop as a teenager during holiday times. He will be missed but not alone. As he will be joining his sisters and brother for many lively discussions.

  • chris ponticas says:

    To the family: my heartfelt sympathy to you. Homer was a delightful person, always smiling, always gracious …. We had many wonderful chats over the years reminiscing about the past – his family were great friends with my parents. Homer loved to tell me how he helped deliver the flowers for my Mother’s wedding in 1934. I can still see him in his Navy uniform during WWI – he cut a dashing figure. He will be missed.
