Kosobucki, Joseph Norbert
Joe was born and grew up in Rosholt, Wisconsin where he worked on his grandfather’s farm. He proudly served in the United States Army and was stationed in Germany where he met his wife at a Christmas Eve dinner 60 years ago. Following his service, Joe worked many years in auto sales where he was very well respected and was known for his honesty and integrity. How do you sum up the life of such a beautiful, interesting, and hard-working person in just a few words? He was a husband, father, Opa, and more. He watched out for his family and taught us how to be good Christians, to be honest, kind, and fair. He taught us the value of hard work and how to do a job well. He brought music to our home, always ready to whistle a tune, play the piano, or one of his many polka records-some featuring his playing of trumpet or tuba in the band. He taught us to value family, heritage, and tradition. He loved the outdoors and looked forward to spending time with his family hunting on “the 40” and fishing. He knew where to find the best wild blackberries for picking and he even tended his own honeybees at one point. He baked the best breads, pies, cheesecake, cookies, and pizzas from his own recipes. He was quick with a joke and had a mischievous sense of humor. He was and will always be our guiding light.
Mom and Dad were blessed to be together for their 60th Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, four children, and seven grandchildren.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Rest in peace Dad, we love you.
