Homer Don considered himself “a citizen of the universe”. None of us really knew exactly what that meant, but as we all knew he was quite the philosopher. He graduated from Nida High School in 1950 and went on to OSU to acquire his degree in Agriculture Science.

They had five children, Terry Dewayne, Vickie Diane, Barbara Gail, Bobby Don and James Paul. He was a member of Nida Baptist Church and was currently attending Milburn Baptist Church. Homer Don enjoyed ranching, showing cattle and horse racing. He also enjoyed his morning coffee with his friends at the Milburn Store, and visiting with his best friend, Earl. But most of all he loved his wife, children, his grands and great grands. In his eyes he felt he was the richest person in the world when it came to his family.
