Condolence From: Sue Sandritter, Westerville, OH
Condolence: The Hoskins Family have been family friends for many years; I always enjoyed the Dick and Kate Show...many laughs, many shared stories and a lot of love. Your Dad is absolutely one of a kind, known for his quick and dry sense of humor, but his character and integrity run far deeper, and this is what truly defines a man. Finally Dick is with his beloved Katie Mae...rejoicing together. May your memories bring you comfort, and the legacy your parents built last forever.

Condolence: Richard Hoskins was my uncle. I have good memories of going to Uncle Dick and Aunt Kate’s house as a child and getting together at Mamaw’s and Papaw’s house. Yes, Uncle Dick always had something clever to say, I always looked forward to his humorous outlook. He and Aunt Kate reached out to help my mom after dad died. I remember his VW bug, and when he used to run, until his knees gave him trouble. I saw him at the high school as a teacher. I remember visiting his workshop and the stained glass angels we got and shared with our friends. And then the stories of he and Kate’s trips. I’m thankful I had Uncle Dick throughout my life to serve as a good example of how to live a full and good life. He is greatly missed.

Condolence: I was a student of Mr. Hoskins at UAHS and benefited from his attentive, frank, demanding approach. After 45 years, I still remember how he resisted students' selling themselves short on their assignments. That memory has served me well in the meantime. My sympathy for his family.

Condolence: To Dick’s family. So sorry for your loss. I lived in the condos for many years and enjoyed Dicks sense of humor, and hugs. He was a real gentlemen. He will be missed.
