Tonight, on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, is the night all ancestors & friends who have passed away are honored and remembered. I know of five who have passed away this year, my father-in-law & Henry among them. My mother-in-law, sister-in-law & wife prepared a meal and set it all out, then lit a candle and incense at the front. We waited at least half an hour before we ate so to offer to my father-in-law first. After dinner we went outside & in a grassy moist area lighted two candles & incense & burned paper “money” in offering. As we did so, I thought of Henry, wishing him peace and a restful eternity. We stayed till the candles burned out. RIP Henry. Ron

Here's a toast to Henry Hom, a fine man and finer friend. We never talked on the phone, never wrote to each other, but whenever he showed up the party began. He lived by his own rules, which were never revealed and never broken, including always being true to his friends. I will never not miss him

Hard to think of the Phoenicians league with Crane and Henry now both gone. Henry never failed to smile and made bowling night a blast. He will be missed for sure.

Dear Henry you will be missed by so many severely. I remember meeting you when I was just 19 of course at the phone company! You are always such a dear friend to Debbie and Bill and a lot of fun to be with, I'll never forget your laughter I've never met anybody that can laugh as fast and hard as you did. You became a part of our family and we lovingly called you the third Boyd! My mom was often jealous that you were always invited to the Boyd family vacations and she wasn't :-) thank you for all the precious memories you will be missed love Allen and Renee

To my brother, Henry, who passed away much too soon. I would like to thank you for all the brother times we spent together. You were a gentle person who looked only at the positive side to all people. I will miss your jokes, your travel/vacation stories, and political discussions. Thank you for your devotion to your nieces and nephews; I know they will definitely miss you! Your body may be gone, but your memory will continue with each member of the Hom Family. Henry, this is just good bye for now; I know you're with Linda and with Mom and Pop. God bless you Henry, until we see each other again!

On August 4th we lost a lifelong friend; it was not expected & it hurts.

Deb first met Henry in 1975 as we all worked at the telephone company. Although I left after 12 years, Deb stayed for 30 years retiring in 2003 & Henry recently retired three years ago after nearly 40 years of service with the telephone company.

I met him in 1975 when we were playing softball at a company event. I hit a ball into right field which looked certain to drop but Henry had reacted to the sound of the bat & made a fabulous catch to rob me of a certain single. He later said he was just lucky but that’s not the case. Henry was always self-effacing & deflected praise he was given but we all knew he was a great guy.

In 1986, Henry asked us to join the Phoenician League & we are still there 32 years later. It will be incredibly hard without him this coming season.

Although we had gone places together such as ASU football, Disneyland & Las Vegas in earlier years, starting in 1995 Henry began to travel with us on a regular basis with other friends and/or with our god-children, nieces & nephews. All together we visited 25 states, the District of Columbia as well as four Canadian provinces by land, air, & sea. We had great times in each place we traveled finding dim sum for Henry, an English teahouse for Deb, & miniature golf for me. We had just returned from a trip in June to Door County in Wisconsin & were planning the next adventure to the Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains which alas will not come to fruition.

Henry was often at our home on weekends or for holidays. He would swing by to grab a bite to eat, play cards or a board game, or watch movies. He liked to play chess with me or one of my nephews. The kids always loved his “red” envelopes at graduation, birthdays & Christmas.

After 43½ years of friendship Henry was more than a friend; he was a brother & favorite Uncle to the kids. He was family & we grieve his loss.

Hommer – we shall miss you dearly.

Henry,

We were incredibly saddened to hear about your passing.

Although you could be ornery about certain things, you were always great company. You always had a twinkle in your eye when you updated me about your casino trips with a picture to boot. I enjoyed all your stories you shared. I will miss hearing your giggle across the bowling alley, your random texts around 2am & being your doubles partner.

I appreciated your prayers, kind words, support & most importantly, your friendship.

Rest Easy, Henry. Give Craney a hug for us.

You truly will be missed.

Love,
Edward, Mandy, Tommy & Donoven

Handsome Henry!
