On Friday, March 24, 2023, Homer “Trey” Hensley III, age 71, passed from this life after a brief battle with cancer. Homer was born on May 26, 1951, to Homer II and Betty (Ater) Hensley in Lubbock, TX. After graduating from Monterey High School, he studied art at Texas Tech University.
Homer was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. Homer married the love of his life, Lynn on September 18, 1973. They built a wonderful life together in Lubbock, TX. He spent an entrepreneurial career working with his brother, Rick for over 40 years. He was a selfless man and always thought of others before himself. As a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, he had 41 years of sobriety and helped countless men during his lifetime. His constant smile and his loving presence will be missed forever by all who knew him.
Homer’s passion for art and his extraordinary talent were known by all. As an artist his entire life, he painted in many mediums, but preferred oil and watercolor. Even when he wasn’t in his studio painting, he was always sketching on a cocktail napkin or any piece of paper lying around. His work has been awarded and exhibited in galleries from New York to California and continues to be on display in many homes.
Left to cherish his memory include his loving wife, Lynn; son Homer Hensley IV, his wife Amanda and their children Harrison and Caroline; daughter Lauren Hensley Pravat, her husband Dr. Nara Pravat and their son Oliver; sisters Lisa (Darrell) Land and Linda Little; along with numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.
Homer was preceded in death by his parents, daughter Sarah, brother Rick Hensley, and sister Sandra Hogan.
A service to celebrate his life will be held at 2:00 PM, Friday, March 31, 2023, at First Christian Church.
