He was devoted to his country as he served two tours of duty in Vietnam and then returned to the United States and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He spent 30 years as a Special Agent of the FBI serving his country in a variety of roles to help protect our great nation.
John L. Hoos always fought for what was right in any situation. He fought for justice in this crazy world we all live in. John L. Hoos lived the FBI creed, Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity.

John lived a great wonderful life. He was well respected in the FBI during his time there and after he retired. We lost a great American Hero when he passed away. The world would be a better place if there were more people like our dad.
John’s favorite speech was Vince Lombardi’s “What It Takes To Be Number One”:
“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.”
John L. Hoos was and always will be a winner. John you were and are loved by so many. God Speed Dad!
