Hoyte married his best friend Shirley Lantrip on June 23, 1961, and together they were blessed with a daughter and precious granddaughter. He loved his wife and daughter yet his granddaughter Katelin hung the moon. His family meant the world to him and he enjoyed just spending precious moment with them. Hoyte was a member of Smithville Baptist Church, loved God and enjoyed listening to Gospel music. A people person, Hoyte never met a stranger and he loved to tell folks that he loved them.

His family and friends will miss him dearly, yet they are at peace knowing that he is in the presence of the Lord. All the wonderful memories made through the years will be cherished forever.
