My Cousin Becky, I just found out you lost Homer. I am so glad I got to meet him and visit you in Shadyside those many decades ago. I remember his wonderful laugh! Thanks for those decades of Christmas cards from you both. I can identify with your loss, as I lost my daughter just 8 days before you lost Homer. May they meet and watch over us until we all meet again.

The year was 1957. My family was recently moved from Kentucky to Bellaire. One of the first people to meet, greet, and welcome me into the BHS class of 1959 was Homer. He was a “Mensch,” the Yiddish term meaning a person of integrity and honor. Someone to admire and emulate and represents the very best among us. RIP my friend

To the Ullom family, very sorry for your loss. I knew Homer through Track and Field. He was a great advocate and an astute official of the sport. He had an affable nature about him and was very well liked and respected. I was glad to have known him, and will be sad not to see him this spring.
