Obituary for Harold L. "Butch" Hoke Jr.

Harold L. “Butch” Hoke, Jr., 76, of Middletown left us for better pastures on Sunday, January 7th, 2018 after a stoke left him powerless for many years.
Butch was born on October 2, 1941 in Middletown, PA, the son of Emma M. (Lytle) Hoke and the late Harold L. Hoke, Sr.
Previously, Butch enjoyed riding his four-wheeler around the Lytle farms that he grow up on and where he had worked most of his life. He later worked at HIA in the kitchen/snack bar area. Butch hung out at the Holstein Association watching as they got cattle ready to be shipped out to foreign countries. He also enjoyed raising his chickens and sitting under the fore bay of the barn waving at people driving by. Butch was a jokester, always ready to make people laugh. His family and friends will miss him.
Butch’s father and his sisters, Judy and Suzanne Hoke, preceded him in death.
Surviving are his mother, sister, Jayne and husband, Robert Mulhollem, niece, Amy and husband, Andrew Howarth, nephew, Joshua and wife, Angela Mulhollem, Great Nieces and Great Nephews, Cassidy, Benjamin, Autumn and Phineas Howarth.
Services will be held on Thursday, January 11th, 2018 at 11:00 AM in the Matinchek Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., 260 East Main Street, Middletown, PA. Visitation hours will be from 10:00 AM until the time of service on Thursday in the Funeral Home. Burial will be Hillsdale Cemetery, Middletown, PA.
