Homer Russell Dummermuth, Jr. age 90 of New Philadelphia died Monday, October 22, 2018 in Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital at Dover following a brief illness.

Born at Dover, Ohio on April 15, 1928, Homer was the son of the late Homer and Florence Shull Dummermuth, Sr.

He attended New Philadelphia High School and entered into the United States Army where he was stationed in Germany and served as a welder with the U.S. Engineers.

A welder by trade, Homer enjoyed teaching others in his home and for a period of time taught classes at New Philadelphia High School’s night program. He was a 27-year employee of Armco Reeves Steel at Dover. He also enjoyed working in his garage on various projects and tearing apart mowers and tractors only to rebuild or repair them.

He was an avid lover of horses, having kept them for many years. He was also a fan of Western-themed movies and television programs. Homer had a knack for making a story into a believable tall tale and loved joking with those around him. He was a faithful member of Jerusalem Church, having previously been on the church consistory and served as an usher. He loved visiting with family and friends and being challenged by his dog, Bosco, who often fought him for the couch.

Homer is survived by his wife of 64 years, the former Elsie Geib whom he married on February 21, 1954; their children, Debbie (Bill) Immel of New Philadelphia and James (Cynthia) Dummermuth of Columbus; five grandchildren, Jeremy Immel, Brooke (Jeremy) Murphy, Christian Dummermuth, Rajani Dummermuth, and Hunter Dummermuth; four great-grandchildren, Bella and Brady Immel and Peyton and Paige Murphy; as well as his brother Dale (Janet) Dummermuth of New Philadelphia.

In addition to his parents, Homer was preceded in death by a son, David Dummermuth.

The family will receive guests on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 5-8 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia. A service celebrating Homer’s life will be led by Pastor Tom Hendershot in Jerusalem Church on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 11 AM. A meal and fellowship will follow in the church social hall. Cremation will follow services and a private inurnment will take place at a later date.

Instead of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions in Homer’s name be directed to Jerusalem Church, 1417 Stonecreek Road SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663 or to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Avenue SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

What a wonderful man. My father and Jr. Loved getting together and talking about horses and old times. He was a great person and a friend to all. My sympathy to all his family.

Will miss my Uncle Jr.. He always said I was his favorite niece, then he would laugh and say, because I was his only niece. He was a kidder. Will miss him a lot. Love to the family. Vicki

Our beloved Junior Dummermuth was one of the best. My daughter, Macie, was very young and had a growth on her foot. We were all at the Dummeruth Reunion on Deis Hill, and Junior actually cured Macie with some old folk lure with a couple sticks! Macie and I were both sooo amazed, and she truly loved him ever since. Course we all loved him dearly because as he would remind us he was our 'FAVORITE COUSIN'. He will be sincerely missed. Our love and blessing to his family.

Elsie & Family - So sorry to hear of Homer's passing. I can't help but smile every time I think of him. Will always remember when Dad was teaching me to drive at the gravel pit and I got us stuck. Homer had to get the truck to get us out. Something he would never let me forget and laughed about it every time I saw him. I will certainly miss that great smile he always had. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
