Homer Arrowood

May 30, 1949 — August 26, 2023

Homer Arrowood, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather, departed this world on August 26, 2023, to be with his Heavenly Father. He was born on May 30, 1949, in Hiawassee, Georgia to the late Homer Vaughn Arrowood and Wanda McClure Arrowood Woody.

He was blessed with five grandchildren: Stephanie (Lew) Bailey, Davey (Bethany) Arrowood, Lydia (Josh) Owenby, Mollie Arrowood, and Cory Willis.

He is also survived by his sisters-in-law Linda Thompson and Evelyn Russell; brother-in-law, James "Bo" Nix; brothers, Danny Arrowood, Barry Woody, and Marvin Woody; and sisters, Elaine Woody Truelove and Brenda Woody Hardwood.
