Joseph David Hosmer, Jr. of Pleasant Grove, AL born January 3,1933 went to Heaven on September 23, 2021. He was 88 years old. Joe is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Lynette West Hosmer. Joe and Lynette have 2 children, Mark Hosmer and Laura Hankins. He is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph David and Laura Lorraine Tucker Hosmer, and his brother Charles Hosmer (Dot). His grandchildren are Debbie Nix (Jonas) and Sam Hankins, and great grandchildren, Barrett and Cohen Nix. Joe was born in Brilliant, AL and graduated high school from West Jefferson. After high school, he was drafted into the army and fought in the Korean War. When he came home, he married Lynette and graduated from Samford University. He worked at Sonat for 38 years before he retired. He was an active member and served as the treasurer of Fairfield Highlands Baptist Church for over 40 years, until summer of this year. Joe will be remembered most for his love of Christ. There is no doubt, Heaven became a bit sweeter when he met Jesus on Thursday morning. He always had a smile on his face, and was willing to help anybody who needed it. Joe was a smart, kind, and patient gentleman who loved his family. He spent his days taking care of everyone, and he made sure they had what they needed. Joe was busy every tax season, helping his friends and family prepare their taxes. He loved Braves baseball and Alabama football, but he loved his country even more. He spent many of his years at Smith Lake, enjoying his lake home. Joe was always up for dessert, especially anything with chocolate. He will be missed by all that knew him. His family can find peace in knowing that his spirit now resides in Heaven with Jesus, for which he spent so much time on this earth preparing. The visitation will be from 12:30 PM until 1:45 PM, Monday, September 27, 2021, at Peoples Chapel Funeral Home. The graveside service will be at 2:30 PM at Pleasant Grove Baptist Cemetery, Abernant, AL, with O’Neal Cleveland officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donating to your favorite charity.
