Homer resident Johnny Ulrich, 59, passed away Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, at South Peninsula Hospital from liver cancer.

Memorial services will be 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Homer.  Father Bob Leising, OMI, will officiate.

 Johnny was born Oct. 8, 1956, in Oceanside, N. Y. He graduated high school and worked as a heavy equipment operator before moving to Homer in September 2007.

In Homer, Johnny was a school bus driver for First Student but had to quit his job in March 2015 due to cancer.

 He was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and enjoyed halibut fishing all day and wood working in his shop.

“Johnny Ulrich was one of the nicest and most selfless men.  For his final adventure, he had the courage to pick up his life and follow his dream to fish for halibut in Homer, Alaska,” his wife wrote.

Johnny is survived by his wife, Mary Ellen Ulrich of Homer; sister, Kathy Rottmann of Cumming, Ga.; brother, Chuck Ulrich of Bay Shore, N.Y.; and many nieces and nephews.

 Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
