Homer Lee Finnie

June 8, 1951 — June 16, 2024

Homer Lee Finnie, age 73, passed away on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at Azaela Commons in Batesville, Mississippi. He was born on June 8, 1951, in his beloved hometown of Batesville, Mississippi to the late William Homer Finnie and Betty Lee Gordon Finnie.

A visitation to celebrate Homer's life will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM at Wells Funeral Home in Batesville. Following the visitation, a graveside service will take place at Pisgah Cemetery starting at 2:00 PM with Dr. Paul Middleton officiating.

During his career, Homer served with honor and distinction in law enforcement, having worked for both MDOT and the University of Mississippi Police Department in his earlier years. He also proudly served in the MS Army National Guard.

Outside of his professional life, Homer found joy in simple pleasures. Some of his favorite pastimes included fishing and quail hunting, especially when bonding with his children over these shared interests. Homer was also a member of the Terza United Methodist Church.

Homer will be dearly missed by his surviving family and friends. He is survived by his wife Belle Finnie of Batesville, MS; two sons, Billy Finnie and his wife Lauren of Brandon, MS, and Barry Finnie of Batesville, MS; and five cherished grandchildren, Skye, Saige, Sawyer, Maddox, and Audrie. 

Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, Donald Wayne Finnie.
