Known to his friends and family as Fred, Frederick Raymond Homer could have a stern exterior, but all who knew him loved him for his big heart and generous spirit. This is the story of his life as he wrote it. He was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho in May of 1926. He spent his childhood and adolescence on the East Coast before enlisting in the US Navy and serving in the Pacific during WWII as a hospital corpsman. He earned a degree in pharmacy and worked for the rest of his life as a pharmaceutical representative, an independent pharmacist, and as a consultant to nursing homes. The capstone of his career was owning and running Bonneville Drug, where he served his community for twenty years through his professionalism, honesty, wisdom, and generosity. He served two missions for the LDS Church to Los Angeles, California and Nauvoo, Illinois. In a voice that is both eloquent and personal, this book recounts the ordinary and extraordinary episodes of a life shaped by the principles that Fred Homer loved.
