Tony J. Hoste, 72, of Mentor on the Lake, passed away January 20, 2018 at TriPoint Medical Center in Concord Twp. He was born April 28, 1945 in Cleveland.

Tony grew up in Willoughby and graduated from Sunny Lane School. Tony's parents worked very hard to start Broadmoor School and Deepwood Center. He worked at Component Repair Technologies in Mentor for 25 years before his retirement. He was the family historian and if you wanted to know when somebody was born or married all you had to do was ask Tony. His family's national holiday was Tony's bowling birthday party. The family would like to thank Jack and Annette Vendi for all their work taking care of Tony.
