Homer Hurshal Smith, 82, of Lampasas, Texas, passed away Friday, July 27, 2012, in the Spring Oaks Nursing Home in Lampasas. Homer was born Aug. 15, 1929, in Zephyr, the son of Hurshal Homer and Edna Mae (Bush) Smith.

He was in the farming and oil-field business before joining the Department of Public Safety in 1956. Homer was a highway patrolman for 20 years, working in the Austin and Brownwood areas. In 1976, he was promoted to sergeant and was stationed in Floresville for two years and then was transferred to Lampasas. He had the honor of being a Special Texas Ranger. He worked in Lampasas until his retirement in 1992 after serving 36 years on the force.

He married Corinne Raye Power on Dec. 28, 2002, in the Faith Lutheran Church in Lampasas, and together they had been faithful members of Faith Lutheran Church and Homer was a faithful worker, head elder, and servant in the church.
