Cablish, Jr., Homer G.



Oct. 11, 1924 - Jul. 24, 2014



Homer G. Cablish, Jr. passed away on July 24, 2014 with family by his side. Homer was born at home on Saturday, October 11, 1924 in Maysville, Kentucky to Homer Sr. and Roberta Cablish. He grew up with a younger sister, Bonnie Cablish Hill. On May 23, 1943, Homer married his high school sweetheart, Genola Sullivan. They were the epitome of true love. He was by her side, taking care of her every day until she passed on January 1st of this year. Homer grew up in Maysville, working at the family grocery store, The Cablish Grocery. He did everything from helping behind the counter to delivering groceries. Homer worked at many things throughout his lifetime. He worked in a paint store, he was a bookkeeper, he was a meat cutter, and he even painted barn roofs with his brother-in-law. Homer was also a fabulous drummer and played in a dance-band in Maysville for many years. In 1971, Homer moved his wife and youngest daughter to Bradenton, Florida and began his career as an accountant. He eventually opened his own Accounting firm with his son and continued working in accounting until approximately a year ago. Homer truly loved many things, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman music, the way Gene Krupa played those drums and baseball were very high on that list. Although he rooted for (and sometimes cussed) the Rays, his heart was always with those darn Yankees. He even attended several World Series Games. He passed on that love of baseball and his good taste in music to his children. Homer is survived by his son, Homer G. Cablish, III of St. Petersburg, FL, and his daughters Mollie C. Huber of Sarasota, FL and Genola "Little Jo" Cablish of Auburndale, FL. Homer is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Homer/Daddy-O was a true husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He will be missed by many. His funeral service will be held at 1:30 pm Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at Mansion Memorial Park located at 1400 36th Avenue East (Ellenton-Gillette Road) in Ellenton, Florida.
