In loving memory of Earl Richard Omo, a devoted husband and father, who touched the lives of many with his hard work and love for his family. Earl was born on July 29, 1931, in Pratt County, Kansas, and peacefully passed away in Hugoton, Kansas on Friday, February 16, 2024.

His commitment to duty and excellence was evident in all aspects of his life.

Outside of his professional endeavors, Earl found joy in simple pleasures. He graduated from Coats High School in Coats, Kansas, laying the foundation for a life filled with accomplishments and cherished memories.
