Frank Hotz

January 21, 1931 — January 6, 2023

Chester

Frank David Hotz, 91, of Chester passed away on Friday, January 6, 2023,  fifteen days before his 92nd birthday.  He is survived by his wife, Jacquelyn Ann Hotz; son, David Blane Hotz (Ann); two daughters, Kathy Louise Bennett (Dennis), Selina Wynn Nichols (Manuel).  He adored his grandchildren, Eric, Steven, Keri, Kayln, Jason, and Adam.  His great-grandchildren were a bonus of love, in addition to his beloved sister, Betty Michalek.

Frank is preceded in death by his wife of fifty-five years, Evelyn Louise Hotz;  two sons,  Ricky (Jerry) and Adrian; and siblings, Rudolph, Charles, Catherine, Joseph, and Rosemary.

He honorably served his county in the United States Navy, and later went on to work at the Stone Container company for over 30 years. Frank was a dedicated and lifetime member of Saint Ann Catholic Church, Chesterfield Tractor Club, and was a member of American Legion Post #284 in Colonial Heights. Yet, what defined Frank Hotz was his love and dedication to his family and his gardening. His passion and attention to detail when caring for his crops provided his family and many members of his community with food to feed their loved ones.
