Homer DeVaul

DeVAUL, Homer E., passed away Tuesday, June 11, 2013. He was a man who never met a stranger and made countless friends.

Homer was born in Shadyside, Ohio, to Irving and Venia DeVaul.

He was preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Patti Jo DeVaul; twin-brother, Bert.

He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Margaret; children, Randy (Sandy), Joy (Chuck) Mick, and Janet (Ric) Buntain; grandchildren, Christopher DeVaul, Brandon and Alexi Mick, Justin, Jordan and Ryan Buntain; great-grandson, Grayson DeVaul; special friends, Jeff and Linda Jarvis.

Homer proudly served his country during the Korean War.

After returning from Korea, Homer entered the insurance business. He was a leading producer for several life insurance companies. In 1971, he joined what is now the DeVaul-Buntain Insurance Agency. Together with Margaret, they built a successful business. One of his best sayings to his customers was, “Your problems are now my problems.” His “Tip of the Week” will be sorely missed.
