Russell Hostettler

June 4, 1958 ~ June 22, 2022 (age 64)


Russell Hostettler, 64, entered into eternal life on June 22, 2022.

He was born to the late Carl “Buster”and Anna “Bugs” (Ehringer) Hostettler on June 4, 1958.  Russ was a graduate of Silver Creek High School.  He was a hard working man, beginning at Kentucky Lithograph, 15 years for Pillsbury, and finally his favorite job was working for Team Construction.

An avid sportsman, Russ enjoyed  many different sports, including playing softball, golfing, ping pong (he thought he was a champion), hunting mushrooms, fishing and hunting, and was never so happy as when he was sitting quietly in the woods, waiting for a deer or fishing at his favorite spot. He also loved going to Churchill Downs, reading the racing forms and betting on the horses. More often than not he walked away a winner
