Carl Hoshor recently turned 90 years old, but he is still actively involved in his roofing business.
We needed some work done on the slate roof of our old farmhouse and contacted Hosher to do the job. His sons Rick and Gary do the bulk of the labor now, but he is still “supervising” and helping out from the ground level.
The business is based in nearby Baltimore. Part of the job at our house was the removal of an old brick chimney that was damaged in a tornado last spring. Hoshor watched from the ground as his sons dismantled the same chimney that he helped put in 65 years ago while working for his father, Joseph. Now THAT is what I call seeing a job through to completion!
