Bob Homer was born in Ogden on May 28th, 1950 to Louie and William Homer. His family moved to Salt Lake City a few years later. Bob attended Highland High School where golf and billiards typically took precedence over scholastics. After high school, Bob took classes at the University of Utah. A brief stint in Connecticut earned him a certificate in Finance, which he parlayed into a career in banking. Some years later, Bob and his wife, Dializ, changed course and opened Kid Station; a daycare that remained in operation for 23 years.
Bob was a connoisseur of all things sports, from the NFL to the Kentucky Derby, he enjoyed it all. However, his true passions were the Utah Jazz and all things Utes. He spent his formative years playing golf and later developed a love for duck hunting. He was an active member of Ducks Unlimited and gave much of his time serving on the Utah Chapter Committee.
While health issues challenged his later years, Bob remained active and with the help of his loving wife, lived a comfortable life. Bob passed on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2021, which is quite appropriate given his love of that particular day.
He is survived by his wife Dializ, sons Daniel and Richard, daughter Nicole Allgrunn, and sisters Lou Anne Carlson (Denver, CO) and Marilyn Woodger (SLC, UT).
