Homer Colonel Elrod, 97, of Gillsville passed away Tuesday August 9, 2022.   Homer was born on July 22, 1925 in Oakwood, GA., to the late Ratliff Claude Elrod, Sr. and Roberta Graham Elrod.

Homer was a WWII Veteran and proudly served in the United States Navy.  After he returned from WWII, he worked as a glazier for many years until he retired. Homer loved to garden, work in his yard, and watch his flowers grow. He was an avid bird lover and fed the wild birds that visited his yard daily. Before he died, he gave confirmation he believed Jesus Christ died for his sins. We look forward to our reunion with him some day in the Kingdom of God.
