    November 4, 1923 – February 20, 2008

    Jack A. Hostick passed away Wednesday, February 20, 2008, at Holy Rosary Medical Center in Ontario, Oregon. Jack was born November 4, 1923, to Fred and A. Myrtle (Phibbs) Hostick in Eugene, Oregon, the second of three boys.

    While growing up in Dexter, Oregon, Jack assisted his father in his auto shop by pumping gas and working on cars. Following graduation from Pleasant Hill High School in 1941, Jack landed a fairly high paying construction job but was immediately drafted into the U.S. Army and served in World War II in the European Theatre as a combat engineer in Iran, India, Germany, and France. Jack was also a 'Golden Glove' boxer during the war. Following the war, he worked for various logging companies.

    On November 25, 1951, Jack married M. June Nystrom Shields, with whom he had gone to school in Dexter. Jack and June raised four children: Penny, Barry, Deborah, and Cody. During this time, Jack was a millwright, and then began to oversee the construction of plywood mills, leading the family to live in Georgia, Florida, and Texas, although they always returned to Eugene.

    In 1978, Jack began mining and operated gold mines in both the U.S. and Costa Rica. Jack and June also traveled to many other places. Retirement wasn't part of Jack's vocabulary, so he found himself the owner and operator of a trailer park in Brogan, Oregon in 1985. While living in Brogan, Jack, his brother Chet, and friends Philip Worsham, Craig Siddoway, Gary Smith, and Gary Clark established feeding stations for elk, deer, and other wild game during harsh winters. A Boise newspaper highlighted their efforts, and donations of over $25,000 came in to help pay for the feed and fuel. Jack finally retired to Ontario, Oregon in 2002. He will be remembered by family and friends as a loving and caring man whose unconditional generosity will be greatly missed.

    Jack was preceded in death by brothers Chester and Stanley, daughter Penny, and son-in-law Denton Tucker. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, June; sons Barry (Nancy) Shields of Englewood, Colorado and Cody (Donna) Hostick of Kennewick, Washington, daughter Deborah Tucker of Ontario, Oregon; grandchildren Alan Dawley, Autumn Shields-Saraff, Andy Shields, Douglas Tucker, Fred Tucker, Hayley Tucker, Dean Hostick, and Paula Hostick; nine great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
