Pete Hosp

June 27, 1936 - October 10, 2017

Pete Hosp, age 81, of Frisco, Texas, passed away October 10, 2017.  Mr. Hosp was born on June 27, 1936, in West Bend, Wisconsin, to Peter and Sylvia Louise (Alhers) Hosp.  He married Barbara Grace Bolin on May 24, 1958, at First Baptist Church of Frisco.

Pete met his wife Gracie on a blind date when he was in the Air Force stationed in Sherman, Texas.  They made their home in Frisco where he served on the city council, the school board, and several boards and committees for city development and youth services.  He was honored with the Chamber of Commerce Silver Citizen of the Year award, as well as having an elementary school named after him. The name of the school is Pete and Gracie Hosp Elementary. He said that he didn't want to have a school named after him if it did not also have his wife's name included as he would say "without her I could not have done anything."  Over the years, Pete also volunteered as fireman, little league coach, Boy Scout leader, Sunday School teacher, and serving as a deacon at First Baptist Church of Frisco and Lebanon Baptist Church.

Mr. Hosp is survived by his wife, Grace Hosp of Frisco, Texas; son, Doug Hosp of The Colony, Texas; daughter, Amy Hosp of Frisco, Texas; sisters, Darlyne Rauh and her husband, George, of West Bend, Wisconsin, and Diann Fritsch and her husband, Doug, of Lake Mills, Wisconsin; and sister-in-law, Vija Hosp of Wayne, Pennsylvania; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Mr. Hosp was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Ted Hosp and Robert Hosp, and his sister-in-law, Jan Hosp.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, October 14, 2017, at First Baptist Church of Frisco.  The family will receive friends during a visitation, being held Friday evening, October 13, 2017, from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

I just found out today after reading on Amy's Facebook page about Pete. My heart hurts. This man was such a great influence for me, as he always lectured me on finishing my college education. I worked with/for Pete at Texas Instruments for several years and will always remember his wit, his sweet smile, and his love for his children and Grace. I remember so well the day he came in to work announcing he had a new baby girl, and was over-flowing with excitement. He was loved by all the co-workers in our department, and I will always remember him as a genuine man, as well as a man who loved life, and loved his family. RIP, Pete, and be sure to save chairs at your table for all your friends that love you! Alice J Neese, November 2, 2017 With a heavy heart we say goodbye. You will be in our prayers.

Mike Zapata , October 12, 2017 Your family is in our prayers. Dale & Sandy Dishmon, October 12, 2017 Pete and others hired my Partner Joni and I at the Frisco Heritage Center to manage / market the venues from 2009 till Pete's retirement. Pete was awesome to work with. At times he was a "little' ornery but that was just his nature and we looked forward to his humor. He would always step in to help up us or any of the clients that were renting the buildings. He really cared! I am amazed at how much this man contributed to the City of Frisco and all the other organizations he was a part of. He was a true servant for the City and mankind. Pete always asked about my family and personal life which I thought was very nice. Many people don't GIVE as much as this man. He will be missed but will be in our hearts forever. Brenda and James Tighe and son's Preston and Logan, October 11, 2017 We will never forget our time with Pete. Aaron and Heather Else, October 11, 2017 Pete was a very kind and helpful friend. As he represented City of Frisco to our Babe's Family he always did it with competence and caring. We were missing his old red pickup; now we will miss Pete. Missing you Pete, Paul and Charla Vinyard Paul Vinyard, October 11, 2017 I am so blessed to have worked with Pete at the City. Joyce Warren, October 11, 2017 My heart aches for Pete's family at this time of loss. He was a great friend, a great co-worker, and a great "Papa" to our two boys. With love, Kellie.

Always in my heart, and cherished memories of my time in Frisco - Lara Lara Hansen, October 11, 2017 I truly enjoyed the time I spent working with Pete at the Frisco Heritage Center. He reminded me so much of my own father....and we would both spar and joke around with our sarcastic humor not all understand! But it was all in fun and we both appreciated each others company and work ethic. Hugs to the family! Miss you Pete! Joni McConnell, October 11, 2017 Pete, I'm going to miss you. You were a very special person and a great addition to the Bolin family. I'll see you in heaven! Don Warren, October 11, 2017
