F.B. Hotz married in 1956, but this marriage was dissolved in 1964. Hotz's ex-wife remarried his best friend, the trumpet player Serein Pfeiffer. In 1970 she stabbed Pfeiffer to death in a fit of madness. Hotz 'biographer Aleid Truijens calls this traumatic event his "primal story". Because of this and his increasing blindness, he developed more and more into a withdrawn man, who rarely left his house in Oegstgeest.
