Omer passed away peacefully at his home in Ceres , CA. He always said "His heart is God's castle". Omer entered the army when he was 17 years old. He served in the Korean War as a First Class Sergeant and earned a Purple Heart for his bravery and service in the army. Unfortunately, he was injured in the army and forced to retire from it.
