Homer Mac Boney III, born on January 1, 1949, in Wilmington, NC, passed away peacefully on February 13, 2024, in his hometown. He was a beloved husband, father, brother, and friend.

Throughout his life, Homer pursued various career paths, showcasing his diverse talents and unwavering work ethic. From serving as a Paralegal to protecting his community as a Wrightsville Beach Police officer, to delighting others with his culinary skills as a Chef at Grove Park Inn, and tending to the land as a Ranch Hand at the Biltmore Plantation, Homer’s commitment to excellence shone through in all that he did.

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Homer found true joy in spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, whom he adored. He also had a passion for golfing, Shag Dancing, music, ice skating, and cheering on the Carolina Hurricanes, finding solace and happiness in these activities.

Homer’s legacy of service extended beyond his civilian roles, as he proudly served as a Captain in the U.S. Coast Guard and Commander in the Royal Marines, demonstrating his unwavering dedication to his country and fellow servicemembers.

Buckner.
