Homner, 67 of Chesterton, passed away Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017.
He was born Feb.
25, 1950, in Joliet, Ill., to the late Edward and Betty (Gurley) Homner.
from Horace Mann High School in Gary, and later from Indiana University
Northwest with a degree in teaching. He worked for U.S. Steel and later as
an Insurance Agent for Allstate for over 20 years.
Steve loved and was
very passionate about writing music, singing karaoke, and sports. He had a
gift when it came to coaching. He coached baseball, softball, and basketball
for over 30 years, and won countless championships. His love of coaching and
music was known by all who knew him. It didn’t matter whether he knew you or
not, he would sing to you anytime, anywhere. His music will live on forever,
just as the love we all have for him.
Steve will also be
remembered for his fun, energetic, and intense personality. He will be
dearly missed by all who knew him. As Steve would say, “Learning is nothing,
remembering is everything.” We will always remember!
