Ford “J.R.” Hoskins Jr., 43, of Richmond, IN passed away at home on January 27, 2023. Ford was born on July 5, 1979, to Ford Hoskins Sr. and Pat Hansen Hoskins.

Ford was a 1997 graduate of Union County High School. He then continued his education at IU where he graduated in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

Ford had a love for law enforcement which led him to his current employment as the Union County Community Corrections director.

J.R. had a love for many hobbies. He enjoyed traveling; he was a “foodie” finding a new place to eat became a game for him. He took pleasure in completing home improvement projects. J.R. liked hiking and the beauty of entering caves while adventuring. He had an extraordinary love for animals; however, his favorites were his dogs Bubby, Sis, and Basil. J.R. was an entertainer; his favorite time of year was during any holiday because it meant he got to spend time with his family playing their favorite card games.

Ford will be deeply missed by his parents Ford Sr. and Pat. He will be thought of often by his sister Debra Hoskins and nephew, Nathan Lohrey. J.R.’s memories will be forever cherished by his life partner Anthony Rodriguez.
