Homer Frank Albright, Sr.

April 7, 1942 - December 24, 2020

Homer Frank Albright, Sr., peacefully left this earth to join his Father on December 24, 2020, with the love of his life, his wife, Helen Albright by his side and surrounded by all of his children and family.

Born on April 7, 1942, in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, he was a son of the late John and Mable (Miller) Albright. Homer and Helen moved to Wilmington, where they ran a successful automotive garage, helping the residents of North Wilmington, for over 30 years.

Homer was loved by so many in the community and could not walk into a restaurant or down the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk without recognizing a familiar face. Throughout his life, Homer was an avid bowler. He loved travelling with his wife and family and in the summer time, could always be found at Rehoboth Beach with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. In addition to road trips to the beach and up and down the country with Elvis Presley singing in the background, Homer and Helen enjoyed dinner theaters, such as Sight and Sound and Three Little Bakers, where they danced hand in hand, celebrating one of many anniversaries.

In addition to his parents, Homer was preceded in death by his seven brothers and sisters and faithful furry children, Spuds and Snowball. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Helen Rose (Blocher) Albright; daughters, Mary Dunlap (Martin), Georgia Jones (Scott) and Tammy Albright; son, Homer Albright, Jr. (Shannon); beloved dog, Rose Bud; 6 brothers and sisters; and 12 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, who he was a loving “Pappy” to.

All services and interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Homer’s memory to the Delaware SPCA, 455 Stanton Christiana Road, Newark, DE 19713.
