A customer and a gentleman.
I have a lot of customer but the experience I had selling you a Patek watch was very unique.
Be well friend and I will see you again one day.
So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed cutting Homer's hair. I will never forget last Oct. when he came in on Halloween with a scary mask on! So full of life even at 93 yrs young!!
It is an honor to have known and worked with Homer. A great Floridian who served his community, state and country with dignity and personal sacrifice.
Prayers for God's grace, comfort, love and light to comfort and forever guide beloved family & friends.
May your Father's Love, exemplary life, humanitarian and historical legacies provide comfort, faith, strength and honor; as you reflect upon your loving memories. Respectfully, I offer sincere condolences to your entire family.
I am sorry for your loss. May God bless Homer and may all of his loved ones hearts be comforted.
Hollis, David, and Helen - the Tennis foursome is together again - Homer, Dick, Scott, and Dr. Collins. My heart and prayers are with you all as you learn to live without you Dad - it's not going to be easy at all. Thank you for being the best neighbors to grow up with.
To Hollis and family, I sincerely enjoyed my years working for your father. He was most kind and generous and I will never forget him. My sincere sympathies.
I will miss you Dad... Now you. Are in such a better place.. I love you so very much.. You are my rock, my father
Lunch here at the Club won't be the same without Mr. Hooks. He was a very fine gentleman and will be terribly missed by all of our staff.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. The loss of Mr. Hooks breaks my heart, I was his travel agent for years and enjoyed the time I got to spend with him, planning their trips. He was such a dear friend to me over all these years, such a pleasure to know and love him. He will be so missed by all.
Homer will be remembered for many things, including his support of the arts in Polk and Florida. I first met him in 1975 when, as a new reporter at The Tampa Times, I covered a speech he gave at the Exchange Club of Tampa in his capacity as head of the Florida Phosphate Council. I was impressed by his humor and confident bearing. It wasn't until I returned to the office -- the old Tampa Tribune building on Kennedy Boulevard -- that I discovered that Homer had worked for the same organization some years earlier.
My thoughts are with the family. Sorry for your loss.
