Obituary for Leroy D. Hoskins Sr.

Hoskins, Leroy D Sr. of Winchester, passed away peacefully, in his home on June 8, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. Beloved husband of fifty-five years to Mary S. (Pacheco) Hoskins. Loving father of Tracie Elliott and her husband Robert of Chelmsford and Leroy D. Hoskins Jr. and his wife Jacquie of Melrose. Cherished grandfather of Sarah Elliott and Leroy III, Charlie, and Russell Hoskins, who was affectionately known to them as their Vovo. Dear brother of Cynthia Porter, Walter, wife Kay Woods, Tom, wife Jacinta Stephenson, Sammy, wife Pam Stanley, Paula, husband, Doug Crescimanno, Frank Hyman, Linda, husband, Jack Clark and the late Monica Tubbs (husband Scott) as well as the late Charlie Joe Hoskins. He is also survived by many cherished nieces, nephews and their families.

Leroy always took great pride and pleasure in being a father and grandfather. He attended his children and later grandchildren’s, many sporting events, cheering them on, as their number one fan.

Leroy was a lifelong learner with degrees from Texas A&I, RIT, Northeastern University, Newbury and Lesley College. In additional to all his years of schooling, while working and caring for his family, Leroy went to night school where he earned his construction and master plumbing license. If there ever was a worker it was Leroy, in between his professional career and raising his family, he, with a little bit of his family’s helping hands, built a beautiful family home in Winchester. This home has hosted many holidays, filled with love and laughter and jokes because everyone knows Leroy loved to joke! Leroy’s positive spirit and warm smile will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
