Our clients are for life.
Ernie trained his son Guy to follow in his footsteps. Guy learned the trade growing up, but embarked on a professional football and baseball career after his Illinois State Redbird baseball team won the school’s only National Championship in 1969. He went on to play baseball for the San Francisco Giants and football for the Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, and Cincinnati Bengals. A knee injury cut his athletic career short in the early ‘70’s, but this allowed Homoly Construction of Chicago to live on. Guy had two sons and both quickly joined him in the business. Andy and Casey put in many long hours from about age 10 through their senior years of college. Working all summer and many weekends, they personally did the work of most of the trades. They poured their own concrete, framed, roofed, plumbed, wired, insulated, sheetrocked, trimmed, painted, tiled, cleaned, and landscaped virtually every project. Guy would often give his sons the toughest jobs and say, “Boys, remember this. Get a good education and get the hell out of the construction business!” The boys listened with Andy receiving his Civil Engineering degree with Honors from the University of Illinois (typically ranked top in the country) and Casey receiving his Chemistry degree from U of I. Along the way Andy was MVP of the Cross Country team and Co-Captain of the Track team while Casey played baseball for Illinois. While Homoly Construction rolled along in Chicago, Andy joined the corporate world in Houston and Casey landed in Texas as well.
At the time, Andy had married his college sweetheart, Cathy (also a runner on the Illinois Cross Country and Track teams), and they were starting their family. Cathy was from Kansas City (and coincidentally much of Andy’s family), so they decided to move to her hometown to be around family. Cathy and Andy have been married for 25 years in 2018 and have a son and four daughters. Cathy continues to work part time with the company.
After a one year stint with a local engineering firm, Andy founded Homoly Construction of Kansas City in 1997. As the company grew quickly, Andy needed his dad’s help. Guy had moved to North Carolina and built his dream home for an early semi-retirement. With some well-timed encouragement from his first grandson, Guy was persuaded to move to Kansas City to join the company. Guy joined the company in 1998 and continued working with his son until a well-earned retirement 2016.
The next generation is already here. Mason, a Civil Engineering graduate from the University of Missouri, has paid his dues with the “tough jobs” over the summers. He joins a great team of folks who have embraced the family atmosphere we wish to cultivate within our company, tradespeople, and clients. Thank you for choosing Homoly Construction!
