Homer V. "Dick"

Homer V. "Dick" Cofer, 83, of Waterville, OH passed away February 7, 2013, peacefully at his home surrounded by his family. During the past year he fought against kidney failure and colon cancer. He was one day shy of his 84th birthday.

He was born in Searcy, Arkansas on February 8, 1929, to Homer and Rosa Cofer. As a teenager he moved to the Toledo area and eventually worked for Pure Oil and then Libby Owens Ford, where he spent the remainder of his career as a foreman. He retired in 1991. He attended the University of Toledo and received his Associate's Degree in Electronics Technology in 1965. He also served one year in the US Navy in San Diego, California as a Yeoman third class.

He was an avid gardener, woodworker and whittler. He and his wife of 61 years loved to haul their 32 foot camper to Alamo, Texas each winter where they would relax, golf, and play shuffleboard. He was also an avid Detroit Tigers fan.

He is survived by his wife, Shirley Cofer of Waterville; his daughter, Janet (John) Burtch of Toledo, his daughter, Jennifer Mowrer of Wooster; brother, Bud Cofer of Monclova; sister, Jackie Shearer of South Carolina, as well as 4 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

He is proceeded in death by his daughter, Jayne; his brothers, Bill, Troy, Wilson, and his sisters, Evelyn, Retha, Bobbie, Gladys, and Marie.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Homer's life at a memorial service at Community of Christ Lutheran Church, 6517 Finzel Road, Whitehouse, OH Saturday February 9, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. Interment will be at Roth Cemetery on Keener Road, Monclova at a later date.

The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice of Northwest Ohio for Homer's end of life care. They would also like to thank the staff of Fresenius Medical Service/Arrowhead Dialysis for all the care they provided during the last 9 months of his life. The family suggests that memorials in Homer's honor be made to Hospice of Northwest Ohio or Community of Christ Lutheran Church. Arrangements by Peinert-Dunn Funeral Homes, Waterville, OH.
