Homer Wesley Wilcoxen, 86, of Seaside, formerly of Clatskanie, died Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, in Portland.

He was born July 4, 1924, in Canary, to Frank and Georgia Rebina (Schultz) Wilcoxen. On his mother's side, family members were Oregon pioneers since long before statehood.

He was raised in various parts of Oregon, including the Delena area between Clatskanie and Rainier. 

During World War II, he served in the U.S. Army as a cook.

Mr. Wilcoxen worked as a cook at Hump’s Restaurant in Clatskanie for many years. At various times in his life, he was also a dairy farmer, chicken farmer and restaurant owner. He owned and operated Bud’s Restaurant in Seaside, and, with his partner Pat Cahill, The Sea Breeze restaurant at the Sunset Highway junction south of Seaside, and The Red Barn in Dallas, Ore.

He is survived by a foster son, Leland Moyers and his family of Portland; three nephews, Harold Wilcoxen of Clatskanie, Bob Wilcoxen of Rainier and Jerry Feakes of Portland; and two nieces, Vicki Wilcoxen of Astoria and Darlene Wilcoxen Johnson of Florida. 

He was preceded in death by two brothers, Howard and Frank Wilcoxen; and a sister, Viola Feakes.

At Mr. Wilcoxen’s request, there will be no service. There may be a memorial in the future.

Ocean View Cremation & Burial Service of Astoria is in charge of the arrangements.
