Homer resident, Mr. Jeffrey H. Wraley, 56, died Saturday, April 2, 2016, in Homer.

No services are planned at this time. 

Mr. Wraley was born Dec. 29, 1959, in Columbus, Ohio. He moved to Homer in 1986.  

Jeff spent many hours doing what he loved: fishing, hunting, and exploring. He was an avid reader and taught himself about archeology, paleontology, history, philosophy, music, literature, science and just about everything in between. He was exceptionally intelligent and creative. Over the years he enjoyed painting, stone carving, and photography. For more than 20 years, Jeff lived in his chosen home of Homer. He spent many wonderful years with his Alaskan family,  including his close friends Ed Bailey and Nina Faust. He took yearly trips to the Lower 48 to visit family. Jeff was a thoughtful and caring man. He will be dearly missed. 

He is survived by his parents, Robert and Brenda Wraley of Westerville, Ohio; sisters, Beth (Dan) Sweig of Boise, Idaho, Lori (Tony) Trobridge of Sunbury, Ohio, and Karin (Matt) Barbee of Tecumseh, Mich.; nephews, Christ Hunt, Ashton Trobridge, Frank Barbee and Aiden Trobridge; nieces, Alyssa (Kyle) Siebold, Taylor Trobridge, Pearl Barbee and Avery Siebold.

Memorial donations may be made in memory of Jeff to the Rotary Club of Homer Downtown, P.O. Box 57, Homer, Alaska 99603, in memory of his work distributing books to underserved people.

Arrangements were made by Homer Funeral Home & Cremation Services. Please sign his online guestbook at AlaskanFuneral.com.
