Father George Henry Hosko, C.S.B. died in the early morning of December 25,2016.
He had been undergoing treatment for acute leukemia for a relatively short time. He was hopeful when he began treatment but various serious complications arose and he finally succumbed on Christmas morning. He was 76 years old.
Fr. George was born in Highland Park Michigan on June 19, 1939. His parents were Joseph Hosko and Helen Holicky Hosko, both from Slovakia.
His parents and his two sisters, Helen Radlinger and Frances Ostrom, and a nephew, Andre Radlinger, predeceased him. He is survived by his niece Audrey Sommers Yanity and her husband Richard Yanity of Livonia, Michigan.
Fr. Hosko was ordained a priest for the Congregation of St. Basil (The Basilian Fathers), on December 14 1968 in Detroit Michigan.
He received his undergraduate degree from Assumption University in Windsor Ontario Canada and his degree in Theology from St. Michael’s College of the University of Toronto.
Fr. George earned a MLS in Library Science from Western Michigan University in 1972.
George used his library training serve at various academic institutions around the country. He worked in Rochester New York, Detroit Michigan, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Phoenix, Arizona and in Houston at St. Thomas High School.
He was serving as the Inter-library Loan (ILL) Librarian at the Doherty Library at the University of St. Thomas when he retired after 19 years of service there, in August of this year.
George loved swimming, loved and supported the arts(he was a huge opera fan). He kept up on local and national politics and the politics of the Church as well. He was willing to discuss the issues of the day at any time.
Fr. George will be missed by those he worked and lived with.
His brothers at the Basilian Father’s retirement community, Dillon House, his confreres and colleagues over the years at St. Thomas University, and in the Basilian Community in general, knew him as a kind, dedicated, curious and involved priest who was faithful to prayer and a variety of ministries including for a time a special love, Marriage Encounter.
Friends are cordially invited to a visitation from five o’clock in the afternoon to seven o’clock in the evening on Wednesday, December 28, 2016, at Chapel of St. Basil at University of St. Thomas, 3800 Montrose Blvd. Houston, TX 77006.
