Homer "Junior" Davis was born in Southern California while his dad was a MP in Germany during WWII. His mother, Adeline and her parents were his first family. When Homer, Sr. returned from the war, they soon moved to Jordan, Montana and worked at the Weeding Ranch. There, Junior was able to race across the prairie on his horse, Little Red.
The next move for the family, which now included his sister Sandy, was to Troy, Montana and the Halfway House. At age 17, Homer, Jr. enlisted in the Army and served in Vietnam 1963-64, in the Army Signal Corps. His second assignment was to Germany, and he was able to use his R & R time traveling Europe a bit. Once home again, he attended Montana State University in Bozeman and earned a BS degree in Commerce.
Homer did different jobs during the years, construction worker in Baltimore, Maryland, assistant manager in retail, but was most impacted by being a taxi driver in Livingston. VIP went out of business in 2008, and that work left him with many acquaintances and friends.
As a Veteran, Homer heard "Thank You" many times, and as a senior on limited income, he was grateful to the Veteran's Administration, and to the taxpayers for providing him with restorative treatment through the years. He was assisted in his last days by the nurses at LHC Hospice Care.
Survivors include his sister, Sandy; wife, Maggie; son, Joshua and his five fur babies.
He will be missed, still alive in our memories. Homer's family would like to thank those in the community who have been so kind.
All are invited to a gathering to be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 3rd, 2023, at Loaves and Fishes, 301 S. Main St., Livingston, MT 59047.
