Ronald Clifton Homan died at his home in Pawleys Island, SC on Sunday, November 24, 2019, surrounded by loving family. Ron was born on February 7, 1932 in Shiloh, New Jersey to Lewis and Pearl Parkhurst Homan. His early years were spent on the family chicken egg farm, along with his three brothers, Lewis, Arthur and Alan and two sisters Marion and Gail.
Ron met and married the love of his life, Irene Everline, in September 1954 and they settled in Woodstown, NJ before moving to Harrisonville, NJ. Ron and Irene had four children, two daughters, Denise and Robin and two sons Scott and Glenn.
He worked several jobs including construction before going to work at Owens Corning Fiberglass in Barrington, NJ until the plant closed in 1987. He then owned a Stork News birth announcement franchise, after seeing a stork following the birth of his third grandchild. After retirement, Ron and Irene relocated to Myrtle Beach and then settled in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
Ron’s hobbies include golf and gardening. He was a low handicap golfer, often bringing home the trophy from many of the Owens Corning golf tournaments. One year he grew so much squash in the garden, the family was forced to eat fried squash (Ron’s favorite way to eat squash) with every meal. Later hobbies included wood working, where he made things to sell at Myrtle Beach craft shows.
Ron was preceded in death by his wife Irene, his parents, and his siblings, Lewis Homan, Arthur Homan, Alan Homan, and Marion Newkirk Lafever.
Surviving family include his sister, Gail Buscagulia and his four adult children, Denise McLucas of Gettysburg, PA, Robin Blake and husband Joel of Fayetteville, NC, R. Scott Homan and wife Margaret (Peggy) of Pawleys Island, SC and Glenn Homan of Pawelys Island, SC. He is also survived by nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Services to honor Ronald C. Homan’s life will be held on Monday, December 9, 2019 at 3:00 PM at Burroughs Funeral Home, 3558 Old Kings Highway Murrells Inlet, SC.
