I was Judge Homer's court clerk for a while and he was by far the nicest Judge on the bench. He was fair and honest and he loved the donuts his bailiff brought him! He is going to be missed by all who knew him.

Ludwina and family,

Judge Homer was on the bench when I first started prosecuting as a young lawyer in Lake County. He was always kind and respectful.

Judge William Homer was my grandfather. He was such a loving man who always encouraged my curiosity and never lost his patience with me. I always have warm feelings remembering back when him, Oma, my parents and I were all playing Domino's while camping at lake shelbyville. I miss you Opa, and I love you. Be at peace.

I was one of his Deputy's in the courthouse. That guy was great and made the best sausage and homemade beer. Many great stories I could tell and all of them wonderful. May God Bless his family he was truly an asset to the community and a good family man. Bill will be missed..
