David M. Kossel, age 62, died Thursday, October 10, 2019 at his brother Fred’s home. He was born on December 1, 1956 to Howard and Doris (Larsen) Kossel.
David was a dairy farmer in Oshkosh until 2015. He was active in 4-H, FFA, and the Town of Oshkosh Volunteer Fire Department in his younger years. He took the Ag. Short Course at F.V.T.C., and later went back to F.V.T.C. to get his C.D.L. In 2018 he became an over the road truck driver for Legacy Express, Fond du Lac. He loved seeing the country and meeting people from all over. A Packer fan his entire life, he was devoted to attend all home games. Also, he had an amazing memory for dates of when things happened. We lost our family historian. David was very good at helping others.
David is survived by his six siblings: Susan (Larry) Hamm of Cave Creek, AZ, Frederick Kossel of Neenah, Patricia Roberts of Wausau, John (Jan) Kossel of Oshkosh, Ellen (Steven) Leppert of Worthington, Ohio, and Mary (Steven) Kuehnl of Oshkosh; 12 nieces and nephews: Nicholas (Kathryn) Hamm, Matthew (Emily) Hamm, Michael Kossel, Ryan (Maggie) Roberts, Mandy Wright, Jesse Kossel, Lisa (Dean) Jagielo, Joseph (fiancée, Kari Amerling) Kossel, Jason Kossel, Brian (Caitlin) Leppert, Michelle (Kevin) Donovan, Paul (Heather) Kuehnl and Jennifer (Benjamin) Morton. David loved hearing stories about all of his great- nieces and nephews.
Preceding David in death are his parents.
