Death: Nov. 4, 2001

Homer Peppers was the youngest surviving child of Clarence Benjamin and Eulola Smith Peppers. Grandad had to leave school in Eighth grade to help out on the farm but was one of the smartest people in math I knew. He passed that on to his son. Homer and his brother Frank served in the Army during World War II. Soon after his service, he met and married Freda "Freddie" Lewis. Less than a year later, they would welcome their son and only child Terry, my Dad. Grandad went to work with Justis Oil Company, joining September 12, 1952 and served over 30 years as a gangpusher [retired June 1, 1983]. He loved to fish and hunt. He spoiled his granddaughters rotten! Cancer took it's toll and after great suffering, his Heavenly Father called him home. At his funeral, his favorite gospel song was played "I Bowed on my Knees and Cried Holy". His wife missed him till the day she joined him.
