Stephen Paul Hoisington, age 63, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away at home on Friday, May 7, 2021. A native of Michigan, he spent most of his life living and working in the small community of Durand.

An avid University of Michigan Wolverines fan, he enjoyed cheering for his favorite team!! Stephen loved the outdoors, gardening and was a railroad enthusiast. His family loved hearing his stories because he could always find the humor in every event. Upon retirement in 2017, he and Vicky moved to Alabama and they are members of St. Peter Catholic Church. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife of 38 years, Vicky Hoisington; daughter, Kristina Spencer (William); granddaughter, Lydia Spencer; brothers, James Hoisington (Sandra), Michael Hoisington; as well as several nieces and nephews.

I was blessed to have Steve as a friend. We worked together in a hospital pharmacy. Steve had a great sense of humor and could take a joke as well as he could hand them out! He made many a stressful shift bearable. He loved his family even more than his beloved University of Michigan..and that's a lot. If you were Steve's friend you always knew he had your back❤️ RIP

I'm so sad to hear about Steve's passing. He was a great friend and never a dull moment when he was at work. Always had those stories that just made ya laugh. Such a kind caring man. RIP my friend.

It is not enough to say that H had a dramatic impact on my life. I will never forget the time he spent with me when I was on student government. He helped me become the person I am today and I am sad that I did not have the chance to tell him to his face about all the positive impacts that he had on me and my life. It has been 25 years since I graduated and now I am the educator. I often find myself asking, what would H do? Thank you for the inspiration and support. Godspeed.

My most sincere sympathy and deepest condolences go out to you Vicky, Kristina and family. I knew Stephen and Vicky when I first taught in Durand. Plus I enjoyed many lunches together with other Durand teachers after retirement. Steve and you were so great together. He will be missed.

My condolences to the family. I met Steve while we were in the pharmacy technician program at Baker. He was the best lab partner and always competitive in a fun way. Then we hired in at the hospital just months apart and I worked with him until he retired. There was never a dull moment with him at work. He knew how to make us all laugh. It definitely wasn’t the same when he retired. I will cherish all the stories and memories I have of him, as he was one of a kind.

Steve was one of my first friends when I started in the pharmacy. We had so many fun times at work. He was so excited when I got my job at UM he told me every time Michigan’s life flight was at the Big G he would say I’m going to visit Erin. Miss you Steve! Watch over us and GO BLUE!!

I have so many memories, I don't know where to start. I lived next neighbor. Here is one of them. About every other week,Steve,Barb,and myself would go through the fridge and find left over stuff. They would make home made pizza. They would never be the same. Loved those pizza. Boy, do I miss those pizzas.

We knew Steve first as a band student and then as an outstanding Special Ed teacher at Durand High School. His passing is a shock and our hearts go out to your family.
