Thomas F. "Tom" Homer, 80, of Dumont, Iowa, passed away Wednesday, March 28, 2018, at Franklin General Hospital in Hampton.

Tom was born on April 2, 1937, in Evanston, Wyoming, to Virgel and Reba (French) Homer. He served his country in the United States Navy from 1955 to 1959. Tom was united in marriage to Joan Buss on November 27, 1967, in Galena, Illinois.

He had several jobs until he started working at Greene Limestone, where he worked for over thirty years until retirement. Tom and Joan also owned and operated Homer's Hi-Way Café and Dumont Video. He was a member of the Dumont American Legion. Tom was an avid Hawkeyes fan. He enjoyed playing cards, watching TV, collecting pocket watches and watch fobs and most of all spending time with his grandchildren.

Tom is survived by his wife Joan Homer of Dumont, daughters Val Moore of Dumont, Tammy and husband Kelvin Krull of Clarksville and Erica Hovatter of Waterloo, grandchildren Justin Moore, Staci and husband Matt Petersen, Cody Bertram, Kurt Krull, Mariah Krull and Todd Hovatter, step-grandchildren Sara and husband Joe Harrington and Krystal (Jason Davis) Krull, four great-grandchildren, nine step great-grandchildren, sister Dora Oitzman of Mesa, Arizona, brother Virgil Homer of Aredale, brother Mike Creeden of Riverside, along with several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, step-father, son Todd Frost, a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law, as well as several other relatives.

So sorry to hear this. Worked with him for many years at Allied Const. He was such a joy to be around. Always made you laugh. What a great guy. He will be missed.

Wendy Wood on Mar 30, 2018

In Cousin Toms loving legacy I send to you all peace to get through the days ahead. May the precious memories and laughs that he passed on to us all bring you comfort. He always brought a smile and or laugh to our conversation and his bear hugs will be missed but cherished. I saw so much of Dad in him with his spunk and gentleness. When his mom passed my Dad was to care for him and somehow only being 10 years older I am wondering who got in more trouble. But the story goes Mom and Dad were engaged or newlyweds and Toms decision to join the Navy to serve his country was a welcome decision. So many fond and joyous family occasions and visits to our farm and your home will always be held in precious memory. Love and prayers for you all- Dan and Wendy Wood
