Mr. Hosmer was my favorite professor when I received my MBA in 1978. He had a passion and joy about his work that made me want to be around him and in his class. He was the professor I thought most about when remembering the Business School years later. I always wished I could have lived closer so that I could visit him not as a student but as one adult man to another. I understood him as a fellow Veteran and sometimes I could get him to talk (briefly) about his WW II experiences. I also admired him as a true gentleman. He was always willing to help us students and he was a great teacher. I was very saddened to learn of his passing in Spring 2014 issue of Dividend Magazine. RIP Mr. Hosmer. My condolences to the family.

LaRue and I were colleagues at MBS for 2 decades. He actually started the faculty lunch series about 20 years ago! I remember LaRue quite fondly.

One of the highlights of my business school experience was as a student in Professor Hosmer's entrepreneurial management class at the Michigan Business School. I fondly recall his energy and enthusiasm -- almost child-like -- remarkable to me for someone in the latter stage of a faculty career. His approachability and friendliness belied his world-class business intellect and accomplishment. The inspiration, encouragement, and counsel that he provided to so many will be missed.

I was fortunate to know Professor Hosmer first as a professor in the business school and after that as a friend and mentor. In the years since graduate school, he was a source of many good conversations, thoughtful insights, and constructive guidance. LaRue's mannerisms and demeanor were truly remarkable, and he has inspired so many to higher ideal. He is a role model for all who knew him, and he will be missed.

Twenty years ago, I came to Michigan as LaRue's successor teaching business ethics. No one could have been more supportive. He had already done the hard work by courageously insisting that the Business School have an ethics course. He went to bat for me numerous times. He shared every scrap of material he had written to help me. I still teach his decision-making process and my new new textbook is littered with LaRue's nuggets. I simply cannot imagine what my career would have been like had it not been for him.
