Default Please Donate to Relay For Life in Honor of my Brother.

My brothers and I started this website about 11 years ago as a hobby. My oldest brother Rob was probably the biggest Gamecock fan ever. He contributed his money, watched all Gamecock sports passionately and bought season tickets to football and basketball. Unfortunately 5 weeks ago, our oldest brother Rob was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and passed away 3 weeks later on 2/27/2016. It has devastated the family and myself, as you can imagine. His daughter is a freshman at USC and also as big of a Gamecock fan as there is. To help honor her Father and our beloved brother as well as raise funds to fight this terrible disease, she is participating in “Relay for Life”. I have included a link to donate or share with others so that they can donate, if you feel so inclined.

Obituary

Prominent Greenville Attorney, Robert Edward “Rob” Hoskins, 50, of Greer, passed away February 27, 2016 at St. Francis Hospital.
Born on March 17, 1965 in Wyandotte, Michigan, Rob was the son of Troy and Sharon Hoskins. As a youth, Rob and his family moved to Greenville, South Carolina where he lived throughout his life. Rob attended Wade Hampton High School where he was active in various athletics, and was well-known and loved by all who knew him. After graduating from Wade Hampton, Rob continued his education at the University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina School of Law where he graduated and obtained his law degree.

After graduating in 1989, Rob joined the Foster Law Firm, LLC, in Greenville, South Carolina, where he spent his entire career. Rob was a partner with Foster Law Firm, LLC where he handled ERISA and insurance claims for as long as he practiced law. During his career, Rob handled thousands of ERISA and insurance cases of about every type imaginable and he regularly handled ERISA and insurance claims involving long-term disability, health insurance, life insurance, accidental death and pension/retirement matters, and became one of the most well-respected and well-known ERISA attorneys throughout the country. Rob handled a number of notable ERISA and insurance cases before various courts including the U.S. Supreme Court. He also had numerous published opinions from various Federal Circuit Courts and handled cases before the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeal as well as numerous District Courts in various states. Rob lectured frequently on ERISA and insurance related topics for various legal organizations, and he had several published works with the South Carolina Lawyer Magazine and the South Dakota Law Review. Rob was also the administrator of the popular website for attorneys, ERISABoard.com. He was recognized by the publication “Best Lawyers in America” for ERISA litigation on multiple occasions, by the publication Super Lawyers as one of the top ERISA lawyers in South Carolina, and was AV rated preeminent by Martindale-Hubble.
Rob was not only a brilliant attorney and mentor to so many, but he was also a devoted and loving husband and father, and a friend to all who knew him. Throughout his life, Rob constantly pursued his love of tennis, athletics and music, and was most proud of sharing those interests with his children. Rob devoted much of his time when not practicing law to coaching and sharing his love of tennis with the youth of his community.

Rob is survived by his loving wife, Katie Heffner Hoskins, and his children, Somerset Hoskins and Bobby Hoskins. Additionally, Rob is survived by his four siblings, Kenneth Hoskins (Keli), Charles Hoskins (Sheri), Richard Hoskins, and Natalie Hoskins Wienert (Scott), as well as his 14 nieces and nephews.

The house I grew up in is caddy corner to Rob and his family. A couple of weeks ago my Dad told me about Rob's sudden, aggressive health issues and his ultimate passing. My parents paid their respects I believe last week.. Really sorry for your and the family's loss.

Sorry for your loss. I actually associate some stuff with the Foster law firm but my dealings have always been with Robin. Never got to meet your brother but from everything I heard he was a great man and left a footprint in the legal community. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
