Philip James Hosking

Reno - December 17th, 1940 - September 4th, 2018 (77 years old). Phil was born in Southern California where he developed a love for the ocean as he grew up surfing at the beach. He graduated from Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach, CA in 1958. After graduation, he enlisted in the US Coast Guard where he served as an engineman until his discharge in 1962. He worked in the non-ferrous metal business in Los Angeles before settling in Reno in the 1960s. It was in Reno where he began a career as a mortgage and real estate professional that spanned over 50 years. He and Judith "Judy" Phair (passed 2011) shared homes in Reno and Catalina Island. He was able to continue his love of the outdoors and the ocean on Catalina Island. He is survived by his daughter, Dr. Stacy Hosking and her husband Joseph Robert of Reno, as well as many close friends and colleagues. His wisdom, counsel and humor will be sorely missed. No services will be held.
