William A. Hosto


William A. Hosto, 89, of Roe went to his heavenly home on April 11, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born July 9, 1931, in south Prairie County, Ark., to the late Herman and Muriel Hosto. William was confirmed March 25, 1945, at Zion Lutheran Church in Ulm, Ark., where he was a faithful, active member until his failing health, holding many officers for many years, his favorite being Sunday school superintendent. He was the last of the six 1949 graduates of Ulm High School. William also served in the U.S. Army.

In addition to his parents, Williams was preceded in death by his oldest daughter, Cindy Hosto Prislovsky; his first great-grandson, Fisher Prislovsky; his two sisters, Alberta Hosto Eubank and Deborah Hosto; and his brother, Eugene Hosto.

William is survived by his wife of 63 years (11-24-57), Martha Hatfield Hosto; daughter, Nansi (Larry) Porter; grandsons, Hunter (Jackie) Prislovsky, Wade (Andrea) Prislovsky and Corey (Allyson) Porter; four great-grandsons, Trapper and Gunner Prislovsky and Larkin and Brody Jo Prislovsky; and one great-granddaughter, Huntley Kate Prislovsky; two nieces, Cathy Tolliver and Christy Thomas; brother, Jerry (Jean) Hosto; sister-in-law, Paula Hosto; son-in-law, Frank Prislovsky; and many wonderful nieces and nephews and all of the Hatfield family.

William and Martha farmed the family farm for many years. One of his proudest moments was when the Secretary of Agriculture presented the William Hosto family as owners and operators of the Hosto family farm for over 100 years. After retiring from farming in1986, William and Martha purchased the former McCollum Hardware Store in Stuttgart, Ark. They both worked in the store for 34 years and retired in March 2020 when they closed the store.

He was a charter member of the Ulm Civic Club, enjoyed camping with the Good Sam Mallard Club, traveling and most of all, going to the duck woods.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to the Ulm Civic Club Scholarship fund or the Zion Lutheran Cemetery Fund.

Visitation will be 9-11 a.m. Thursday, April 15, at Zion Lutheran Church in Ulm. Funeral service will begin at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in the chapel at Zion Lutheran Cemetery.
