Obituary for Edward M. Homola II

Edward Martin Homola II of Royal Oak lost his battle with pancreatic cancer, Tuesday May 11, 2021 at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. He was 56 years old. Edward was born in Owosso, Michigan on August 15, 1964.

Edward is survived by his partner of 17 years, David Betz of Royal Oak, and his sister, Nicki Stafford of Muskegon, Michigan. He will also be dearly missed by other close family members, Ruby Kotch (Betz) of West, Texas, Terrence and Kathleen Daniel (Betz) of Bellmead, Texas, Alicia and Matt O'Connor of Caledonia, Michigan, Rhonda Young of St. Louis, Michigan, Christine Markette of San Antonio, Texas, and Kathleen Brown of San Antonio, Texas. Edward is preceded in death by his father, Edward Martin Homola Sr., mother, Nancy Stinson of Owosso, Michigan, as well as grandparents, several aunts and uncles, and other loving family members. Edward also loved his 2 favorite fur babies, Jasmine and Binx.

Edward was a Professional Cosmetologist in the Grand Rapids area for many years prior to meeting David in 2004. Many of his family and friends (especially Angel Louise, Amanda and Nicole) will remember Edward for his quick wit and humor. While Edward had his own struggles growing up in life, he was also one of the most generous and kind persons you could ever meet. He loved doing most things hobby related including knitting, stitching, yarn making and home decorating and also had a passion for cooking.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home at 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Roads), Friday, May 14th, 10am to 12pm. Graveside Services will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 1106 S Washington St, in Owosso, Michigan at 2pm.

Due to the unexpected diagnosis in such a quick manner, in lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial tributes be directed to Edwards Memorial Fund to assist with funeral expenses. These payments can be made directly to David Betz.
