Kent B. Hostetler, 66
Kent was born Oct. 23, 1947 in Columbus, Ohio, a son of the late Rex and Lela (Murphy) Hostetler. He graduated from Mount Vernon High School and later attended Ohio State University. He married Vicki C. Giumentaro in Saint Anne’s Church May 27, 1972. He honorably served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and became co-founder of Worcester County Vietnam Veterans.
He worked as a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service in the main branch in Worcester for many years, retiring in 2003.
Kent loved playing golf, and retirement to Myrtle Beach allowed him to play as often as he could. He also had a passion for antique cars and motorcycles.
In addition to his wife of 41 years, Vicki, he leaves his sister, Janet Groene and her husband Bill of Chesterland, Ohio; his in-laws, Carol and Michael Mazzola, Maureen and Richard Londergan, all of Shrewsbury, Sandra Firkins and her husband Donald of Kentucky; and many nieces and nephews.
Kent’s family offers thanks to Sharyn Londergan of West Dennis who took such wonderful care of her uncle while he was ill.
Kent’s family will gather privately to honor and remember his life in Heald & Chiampa Funeral Directors ~ The Sumner House, 5 Church Road, On the Common, Shrewsbury, with burial with military honors at Mountain View Cemetery.
