Anne Murray’s “Could I Have This Dance?” held a special place in the heart of Paul A. Hosier, 77, of Dwight, formerly of Flanagan, IL. After 39 years of marriage to his wife, Joyce (Beaver) Hosier, Paul ended his earthly waltz at 4:59A.M., February 26, 2019 at the Joliet Area Community Hospice in Joliet, IL, surrounded by his family and his favorite Cubs blanket.

Hager Memorial Home in Dwight, IL is in charge of arrangements.
Paul was born on December 14, 1941 in Streator, IL a son of Rolland and Selma (Thorson) Hosier. He married Joyce on May 24, 1980 in Kankakee, IL. She survives in Dwight.

Since graduating from DTHS in 1959, he has held an array of jobs including being a volunteer firefighter for the Village of Dwight, a bookkeeper for the bank, painter, carpenter and lawncare. He retired from the Illinois DOC with over 30 years of service, adding a couple more years with IDOT. He was a member of the Flanagan and Dwight Lions Clubs and the Moose Lodge.
His 77 years were blessed and fulfilling. He loved music and traveling the United States, wintering in Arizona for the past 21 years. He was a lieutenant during the Pontiac prison riot of 1978, organized DTHS’s first skip day, and was very proud to see the Cubs win the World Series.
