Amos E Hosey


Beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend to many passed peacefully at his home surrounded by love.

Retired from Trinity Industries, Amos spent his retirement working in lawn care and farming, preferring to keep active until the very end.

Showering all who knew him with vegetables and flowers from his garden and importing wisdom along the way. With a sunny disposition and a twinkle in his eye, he kept all entertained with his stories and songs.

Survived by loving wife of 67 years, Louise Hosey, children Jimbo (James D) Hosey (Teresa), Tracy Gilliom (Bryan); grandchildren Christopher N Dunn (Ruth), James Aaron Hosey (Jordan), Justin D Hosey (Ally) and Jarred Hosey; 7 great grandchildren and 4 great, great grandchildren and countless friends and distant family.

We are eternally grateful to our angel walking, Shirley Dumas, for the love, care and friendship she has shown us all, especially Amos.

A special thanks to all the wonderful caregivers at Shelby Cancer Center for their sweetness and consideration.

    Amos was a very special man in my husband and I , my daughter, Jada and her two children, Laurel and Cole. We always loved seeing him coming to visit us on his lawn mower here in our neighborhood. He called my husband “Coal Miner” and me “McArther”. We will always keep those memories in our hearts and his loving family.

    May the Family find some comfort with the words of Jesus Christ when he spoke them in John 5:28,29 about to where we find him here speaking to us all about a Guarrantee that he will accomplish and that is he will resurrect all of those who have fallen asleep in death, but will be awakened back to good health and be able to live on this earth, forever as the Bible says in Psalm 37:29 which reads:The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it. So always know from Gods standpoint is that what he has spoken thru His Son, Jesus Christ will all come true. Isaiah 55:11 everything that comes out of Gods mouth will come back to Him with results. So please go to
