Homer Escamilla Oviedo

Homer Oviedo of Reedley peacefully passed away on April 11, 2021, at his home. Homer was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and later spent some time in Texas before moving to the Central Valley. He was a proud and dedicated truck driver and later retired due to health reasons. He spent his last 13 years working at The Cat House on the Kings, alongside his son and best friend Christopher Oviedo. He was a hard-working man and worked up until his last day on earth. Having a passion for the outdoors, Homer often spent his time at the lake, in the mountains, and camping with his wife Martha, his one true love. He was a family man and loved all of his children and grandchildren unconditionally. Everyone knew him for his pleasant personality and contagious laughter and humor. He was a selfless, giving person and would offer the shirt off his back if you needed it. He is now preceded in death by his beautiful wife, brother, parents, and grandchild. Homer is survived by his seven children, 39 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren, five sisters, one brother, and many nieces, nephews, and friends who love him dearly.

I, as the middle child of the oviedo family, loved and miss my dad. The moment that I will ever cherish would be the day my father walked me down the isle of my wedding. Seeing my father there was the most happiest moment of my life. Being able to see him and know that my life would be perfect. I have a family and an amazing husband. Till this day I do not regret that day.

My Father in law was a great man. He was ALWAYS there for me and Eric. He loved his children and grandchildren and would do anything for anyone of them. The last year he would drop by to visit often and I could hear his truck as it would round the corner and I would yell out Eric your Dad is here. He put a smile on all our faces. Eric would always be sooo happy to see his Dad. Hey Pops!! How are you?, he would always say. If Eric didn't know how to do something or needed advise his dad was always there to guide him. Even though his family was large he still was able be there for everyone and that is truly amazing. How I will never forget you and your love and kindness you have given to me Eric and the kids. Until the day we meet again you will forever remain in our hearts Love you, Jackie, Eric and the kids.

As adults we got busy with our own family but always had time to check in every once in awhile to see how we were doing . As young siblings I remember his craftsmanship from carving Monopoly pieces that had been lost or broken to a challenging game of tennis. Our family of eight siblings were not rich with money but I see now that we were rich with each other . It is growing up that takes a lot of work to stay in track with living and staying close to family. I will remember him for the handsome loving brother he was .

Its so hard to say goodbye to my father in law Homer Oviedo.He was the hardest worker I have ever met. He loved his family and would do anything in his power to make them happy. He taught me so much and his joy and laughter will be greatly missed. All the good times we had camping and fishing or just barbecuing we will never forget. We love you and miss you.

Still hard to believe my grandpa is no longer with us. He was such a hard worker and lived for his many grandchildren. I will never forget your story telling, casino weekends and many camping trips that'll never be the same. I miss you so much grandpa, we love you always. :heart:
