Homer Dale ‘Pete' Babbs

STANFORD — Homer Dale ‘Pete' Babbs, 51, of Stanford, formerly of Sulfur, Ky., passed away at 6:24 a.m. Saturday (May 5, 2007) at the home of his sister in Pendleton, Ky.
He was born Sept. 13, 1955, in Bloomington, the son of Homer Dean and Mary Owen Babbs.
Pete was a prison guard at the LaGrange State Prison for several years. Most recently, he had his own janitorial business in Stanford. He was a member of the Allin Township Fire Department.
He was cremated. The family is taking care of local arrangements. There will be an honorary procession from the Allin Township Fire Station to Brooks Grove Cemetery at 10:45 a.m. Saturday with a graveside service at 11 a.m. at the cemetery, rural Stanford.
Memorials may be made to the Allin Township Fire Department, Stanford. Flowers can be sent or dropped off at Tremont Savings Bank in Stanford.
He is survived by a sister, Norita (Mike) Thomas of Pendleton, Ky.; a brother, Woody (Lisa) Smith of Shelbyville, Ky.; two nieces, Farriahday Brooks and Brianna Thomas; eight nephews, Mike Jr. and Dexter Thomas, Orion, Kaden, Logan and Noah Smith, and Austin Collins, all of Kentucky; in-laws of his sister, Fred and Barbara Thomas, also of Kentucky; two aunts, Linda (Dave) Nafziger of Stanford and Betty Babbs of Fisher; three uncles, Alan (Bev) Owen of Bloomington; John (Nydra) Owen and Bob (Ruth) Babbs of Stanford; and numerous cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Ronnie; and grandparents, Clyde and Grace Owen and Hillard and Emma Babbs.
Pete was loved by all who knew him and he had more friends than most people have acquaintances in a lifetime. If wealth were measured by friends, he was a billionaire. He left a huge impression on each and everyone in their hearts with his friendship and kindness and never realized how greatly he affected them. He gave all, but asked for nothing in return. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
