Obituary

Beloved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, and friend, Thomas Charles Hoshall, passed in peace on January 31, 2019 at his home in Oklahoma City. Tom was born in Oklahoma City February 7, 1942 the son of Clarke and Mary Hoshall. Tom began his career at the age of 19 selling CB radios; he opened the first exclusive CB radio store in the nation in 1960. His business grew into car stereos, and then expanded into opening retail stores and distributing divisions for Capital, Columbia, Ampex, and other major record and tape companies.

In 1968 he graduated from the United States Army Reserve Component Non-commissioned Officer
Academy, and in 1971 was honorably discharged.

In 1968 he received a patent on what became the nations most highly successful theft preventive
display case. In 1972 he formed a full record company, his recording company recorded many
successful artists of the time including The Blackwood Brothers, Dale Robertson, James Brolin, Henry
Youngman, etc.

In 1973 Tom formed Cartridge Industries Corporation, which became the nations largest plastic
manufacturer of 8 track stereo cartridge components, and distributor of magnetic 8 track tape products.

In 1974, he developed and received a U.S. patent design for the first K.D. knock down pipe furniture,
which also won the #1 outstanding furniture design for the year at the furniture industries national show.

In 1978 Tom ventured into the energy conservation industry. He designed and received patents on the
industries simplest, highest performing, insulation blowing machine. By 1982 his company had
expanded to be the largest distributor of energy insulation products.

He revolutionized the 900 pay per call industry, with his company 900 Call Association. The company
developed and successfully syndicated several 900 programs such as “Americas Favorite Tunes”,
“Telephone Crossword Puzzles”, as well as a National Auction Channel.

During this time Tom had many successful companies, including Hoshall Industries, King of Sports: Hi-
Line Ranch, United States Weather Corp, Equity Capital Corp, Take-A-Trip America, and Associated
Advertising.

In 1993 he formed Hoshall Way Homes/Tom Hoshall Healthy Homes, building hundreds of
green/energy efficient homes. He also formed Healthy Way Pest Control, and developed and received a
patent on an inject-able termite piping system, which keeps the pesticide under the home, and away
from your family.


Up until the moment of his death he was avidly working on OnNowTV, “The Planets First Internet
Television Network” that he developed and received several patents on. Tom was a true through and
through entrepreneur. You could always hear him saying “I am building character and developing new
skills”

Tom is predeceased by his parents, and his beloved Father and Mother in Law Pete and Argie Caporal.
He is survived by his cherished wife of forty years, Demee Hoshall, his adored daughters Tina Hess,
and Lexi Amos, and their husbands Paul Hess, and Matt Amos, and his precious grandchildren, Holt
Amos, Cameron Hess, Elena Amos, and Coe Amos.

He received a call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for a meeting from which he will not be returning.
This last assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends he has not
seen in a long time.” Looking down, and watching over us all, with “thumbs up”.

In lieu of flowers a donation to CASA of Oklahoma County or The American Cancer Society is greatly
appreciated.

Dearest family,
I am offering my sincere condolences to this family and friends. I am so very sorry for your loss. Death was never part of our Heavenly Father’s original purpose for mankind. In fact, in His word the Bible He calls it an enemy (1Cor. 15:26) which He promises in the very near future to do away with (Rev. 21:4,5) At that time tragedies and accidents will be a thing of the past, no one will ever get sick (Isaiah 33:24) and there will be a reuniting, a bringing back to life instead of losing (John 5:28,29) Please allow these words to be of comfort to you and give you hope.

With heartfelt sympathies from Liz Myers (daughter of the late Chuck Myers of Chicago). My father and Tom were in the record business together back in the 1980s. My whole family wish all of you the best during this sad time.
