About the author
Homer Hudelson grew up in the Outer Sunset District of San Francisco, California in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.
His father died while he was a sophomore in high school. There were no pensions in those days, so with US Savings Bonds, money from his mother's babysitting work, and his newspaper route, Homer attended and was able to graduate from Sacred Heart High School in 1952. The next day, he was hired by the Southern Pacific Company. In 1958, he entered the San Francisco Police Department, and after thirty years of service, retired as a Lieutenant with an exemplary record. He also received three meritorious awards, one being the second highest award given by the SFPD. After retirement, Homer worked part-time with United Airlines and traveled the world. He is known by many for his volunteer role as a Eucharistic Minister at Seton Hospital, his love of golf and Bay Area sports, and his ability to tell one heck of a story.
