It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Andrew James Hoschka on March 17, 2007. Born in Olds, Alberta, Jan. 4, 1925. Andrew started his farming career in Olds. He married Catherine (Kay) Ettinger on Oct. 22, 1952 and they had four sons. In 1964 they moved to Langley, BC where they con­tinued the farming passion, raising Pinto and Paint horses as well as operating the Silver Spur Riding Stables. Andrew also worked in the Langley Legion for 20 years. In 1988 Kay and Andy once again re-entered the farming community. This time with chickens and raising Simmental cattle. They did this for 18 years, where Andy’s passion lie, a farmer at heart where he worked until the end.
