Earl Homan passed away in Vero Beach, Florida, on May 8, 2017.

Earl was born in his parents' farmhouse in Pennsylvania Furnace, Pennsylvania, on October 1st, 1920. He grew up working the family farm and graduated from State College High School in 1939. He married the love of his life, Phyllis, in 1945. Earl was a recreational flier and a member of the Flying Farmers. He loved to cruise the mountains and valleys of central Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Baileyville Grange and farmed until Phyllis and he moved to Vero Beach in 1964.

In Vero Beach, Earl worked at Piper Aircraft for ten years and was a self-employed painter until he retired. Earl and Phyllis were faithful members of Graysville Presbyterian in Pennsylvania, and after their move to Florida, the Vero Beach Church of Christ. Earl and Phyllis loved to fish and camp.
They put many miles on their camper van in their retirement years and caught messes of fish from Lake Marion. Phyllis predeceased Earl after 66 years of marriage.

Funeral services will be held at the Vero Beach Church of Christ, 3306 20th Street, on Thursday, May 18th, at 11:00 a.m., with viewing at 10:00 a.m.
The arrangements are being handled by Aycock Funeral Home, Ft. Pierce, Florida. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Vero Beach Church of Christ Building Fund.

Earl is survived by his sister, Mary Ellen Kean, and brother, Elwood Homan. He is also survived by nephews and nieces who affectionately knew him as Uncle Bud. Earl will be remembered as a gentle, God-fearing man who loved the Lord's creation, both great and small. He was always a joy to be around, and he was a wonderful storyteller. All of us left behind are sure that Earl's last flight was his greatest.
