He is survived by his children: Bertha, wife of Jason Bange, Hanover; Carl Hostetter, husband of Sharon, Gordonville; Ruth, wife of Glenn Heisey, Lititz; a sister: Anna, wife of Moses Martin, Hopeland; a brother: Amos Hostetter, Mohnton; 11 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his siblings: Samuel and Elizabeth, and half siblings: Mary, Aaron and Martin and a step brother: Elvin Martin.
Funeral services were led by Pastor LeRoy G. Martin, Pastor Glen Fox, and Deacon Amos S. Hurst Sept. 9 at New Haven Mennonite Church, Lititz, with a viewing one hour prior to the service.
