David C. Homsher
April 21, 2017, 05:00 AM

David C. Homsher, born June 4, 1931, died March 28, 2017, of natural causes.

He was a resident of San Mateo, California. David was born in Yeadon, Pennsylvania, the only child of Wesley and Hester Homsher. His family moved to Woodbury, New Jersey, where he graduated from high school. David followed his interests in radio technology, earning certifications. He then served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Soon afterward, he met and married Helen and relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where David began a long and fulfilling career with United Airlines where he worked until he retired in 1990. After retirement, he dedicated his time to writing, pursuing his deeply felt interest in World War I, researching archives and traveling AEF battlefields. He self-published a guidebook, “American Battlefields of World War I, Chateau Thierry-Then and Now,” dedicated to the memory of the American Doughboy. David will always be remembered for his human compassion and remembrance of soldiers who fought for freedom.

David is survived by his wife Helen, daughters Adele and Cara, son-in-law Russell and five grandchildren — Kai, Kaden, Luke, Leia and Bryce. David will be interned on June 5, 2017, at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, California.
