Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
David Edward McOmie “Homie” age 73, died July 12, 2023, at his Olathe, CO home with his family by his side. Dave was born August 8, 1949, in Salt Lake City to Doris and Edward McOmie.
He was the only son of 4 children. In 1969, the U.S. Army called on Dave where he served in Vietnam until honorably discharged in 1971.
Dave married Janay Koch in 1972 and was blessed with their daughter Daniele in 1975. They were later divorced, and Dave met Kathy Jones which they were married to in 1986. With Kathy’s 2 children April and Max and Dave’s daughter Dani, they had 3 children. As a wonderful family they enjoyed horses, many camping and boating trips and many more fun activities.
Dave worked 35 years in the Industrial Insulation/Construction industry then later worked for Dugway Proving Grounds where he met many friends along the way. Many would say “Homie” was a stubborn man. But all would say he was knowledgeable, fun and kind.
As a young boy, Dave was introduced to the country life by his Uncle Tony in Vernon, Utah where he called home away from home. He was an avid horseman and hunter and enjoyed doing this with his family and friends. More than anything else, Dave’s grandchildren were his pride and joy. Being a Grandpa was his biggest reward.
Dave is survived by his wife Kathy; children, April (Derrick) Sutherland, Max (Kimberly) Wahlberg, and Dani (Arthur) Peasnall; 8 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren; sisters, Neta Mcomie, Kay (Gary) Hill, Kathleen (Robert) Hartman; best friend Mike Morrison and many nieces and nephews who adored him.
He is processed in death by his parents Edward & Doris McOmie; father and mother in-law Joseph and Dele Jones, and Uncle Tony.
Dave will be remembered for his wit, strength, wisdom and hard work. “Happy trails to you…until we meet again.”
