On Tuesday, June 22, 2021, Homer Lee Rhodaback, loving husband and father of three children, passed away at age 77.
Homer was born February 5, 1944 in Salem, Oregon to Andrew and Hazel Rhodaback. He was the youngest of three boys. On April 19, 1964, he married Carol Fassbender Rhodaback and together they celebrated 57 years of marriage. They raised three children: Kym, Chris, and Nancy.
Homer started Best Pots, Inc., in 1977 and it's still flourishing today as the gold standard in the industry. Homer was known as "the guy who could fix anything" and he used these skills to support his family and help his neighborhood and community. He was a wonderful woodworker and used his traits to craft items for his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed building hot rods and going to car shows.
In retirement, he enjoyed splitting his time between his house on the Oregon Coast and his house in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. While living in Arizona, Homer and Carol became avid rock hounds, creating their findings into jewelry, coasters, bookends and more. Homer and Carol loved being together and creating memories with family and friends. He was very loved by his nine grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
