Homan Skaggs, 82, previously from Grove City, OH, died on Oct.19, 2017, in West Jefferson, OH.

Homan was born in Red Bush, KY, in 1935; he gave his life to Jesus Christ in Dec. 2000. Homan was a longtime employee of TOSOH America and previously of White Castle Porcelain Steel Building Company. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, gardener, machinist, wood craftsman, and diehard O.S.U. fan; he was also well known for his Christmas fudge. Homan was active at Highland Baptist Church of Grove City and West Jefferson First Baptist Church. He was affectionately known as "Hodey" by his beloved wife Wanda and "Boo" by his three grandsons, following an epic game of peek-a-boo in 1987.
