A celebration of life will be held for Homer Avila on Saturday, January 22nd at 6pm. All family and friends are welcome to come and share memories, eat good food, listen to Homer’s playlist and just have some fellowship, it’s what Homer loved the most! Homer was born to Julian and Maria Avila in Laredo, TX on November 17th 1968. Homer was the oldest of 8 siblings. Homer loved Jesus, he thoroughly enjoyed any family time he could get. He adored his two daughters and loved spending anytime with them, so he could spoil them rotten. He loved spoiling everybody, he was very observant and knew what we all loved. Food was a love language of his. Homer lived with his mama in Longview most recently, where they took care of each other; he will be a huge loss to her as to all of us that loved him. He loved football, ever faithful fan of “Dem boys”. He passed on Sunday, January 16th,2022, surrounded by his loved ones. It was bittersweet his passing on a servant Sunday. He loved Sundays, they were for his mornings of worshiping Jesus, football and family gatherings. Ironically it was the day he went to be with his Jesus. He is so very missed and leaves behind many broken hearts. Homer is survived by his mother, Maria Avila, brothers; Oscar Avila and wife Iliana, Israel Avila. Sisters; Jessie O’Brien and husband Bob, Dessie Smith and husband Dewayne. Nancy Olivares and husband Carlos and Veronica Maxey. Daughters; Jacky Green and husband Caleb, Noemi Kay Avila and many nieces and nephews whom he loved very much. He is in death by his father Julian Avila and little brother Pilo Avila.
We will be enjoying his favorite foods with friends and family at 112 Watkins in Longview, TX on January 22nd at 6:00 pm. Dress warm to enjoy a bonfire.
