This eternal flame burns forever

William A. Hosto

July 9, 1931 - April 11, 2021

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 officies 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 was 9-11 a.m. Thursday, April 15, at Zion

Lutheran Church in Ulm. Funeral service was at 11:30 a.m.

Thursday in the chapel at Zion Lutheran Cemetery.

Though He's gone, He is not forgotten.
Though absent, He remains in spirit.
Though once a worker, He now rests.
