Orbit was a Victoria High School Class of 1968 classmate. We were also co-workers at the Kroger Family Center in the late 1960s. Over the ensuing 50 years, our lives intersected briefly on only two or three occasions. I found Orbit to a very personable and considerate human being. I am a better person for having known him. Thank you, Orbit Hosey, for being a friend.

I met Mr. and Mrs. Hosey years ago during a vehicle purchase. He was a soft spoken yet matter of fact man. Many years later our paths crossed again as his son Timothy came to work with us at the dealership. I was once told that a measure of a man is what he does as a father and a husband. From my dealings with his children, he was a great father, and loved his wife dearly. The world has lost an incredible Man, but he is now peacefully walking the streets paved of gold. Prayers and condolences from Jesse, Amanda. Nate, and Sean Beck along with your entire Victory Family.

Orbit is my cousin
Novella and children what a spiritual giant
And father and husband
He had such an humbling smile
May God bless and keep you safe
God promised never to leave us comfort less
Sister Hosey the love of my cousin just call on Jesus
Now He is our strength in these times
God bless
