 Obituario de Homer E. Guren
Homer E. Guren Our beloved Homer passed away peacefully at the age of 95 on March 12, 2023. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Homer took great pride in being married for 71 years to his beloved and devoted wife Lois, and genuinely cared about people — his family, his wide circle of friends, and those in need. Born in Cleveland to Rose and Nathan Guren, Homer graduated from Shaker Heights High and Ohio State. He remained an avid Buckeyes football fan and loved the annual buildup to Ohio State’s game with Michigan, especially the pre-game banter with his Michigan alumni friends. President of Barris, Guren, & Wedren, and Homer E. Guren Real Estate, Homer and his partners managed the Terminal Tower for 15 years and built the Summit Office Park in Independence. Homer also developed and managed many other commercial properties in and around Cleveland including the Citizen’s Building and other properties on Public Square. Homer was a passionate champion of the City of Cleveland. He worked on many civic projects focused on the redevelopment of the Downtown area and took great pleasure in seeing several of those initiatives come to fruition. Homer served as Vice President of Temple Tifereth-Israel and worked for the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. But above all else, Homer was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, friend, confidant, and mentor. He was deeply engaged in his passions, including family, friends, real estate, travel, reading and golf — and wanted to help others find their passions so that they too could experience the pleasure he took in celebrating every day. The glass was always more than half full in Homer’s eyes. Adored brother of Sheldon Guren (Bonnie). Beloved father to Marc Guren (Aliza), Cliff Guren (Deena), and Vicki Guren (deceased), Homer was also the loving grandfather to Adam Guren (Kate Lewandowski), Julia Guren, Nick Guren (Katy), and Peter Guren (fiancé Alex Gravely), as well as his great grandchildren Asher, Bennett and Elliot. Homer was also the treasured uncle to Jon Guren (Mary), Pam Korotky (Ron, deceased), Beth Burnes (Michael), Neil Platock, Brian Platock (Leslie), Heidi Giddan, and Andrew Kaplan (Kristen). The family extends special thanks to his wonderful care-givers Tess, Eddie, Nate, and Nina who helped and comforted him greatly in the final phase of his life. Friends who wish may contribute to the Vicki Lynn Guren Fund at Temple Tifereth-Israel, Razom for Ukraine (, or a charity of one’s choice. A service for Homer will be held on Friday, March 17 at 1 PM at Temple Tifereth-Israel (26000 Shaker Blvd, Beachwood, OH 44122). The service will be live-streamed at . A private family interment will follow. Please join us for a celebration of Homer’s life following the memorial service from 3 PM to 5 PM at the Mayfield Sand Ridge Club (1545 Sheridan Rd, South Euclid, OH 44121). Homer will be fondly remembered for his generosity, warm smile, love of life — and the $2 bills he enjoyed giving, along with his best wishes, to acquaintances with children and those who were special to him. As Homer said in his final days, “It was a wonderful trip!” .
