Wil Gosch

William Frederick Gosch, 91, was called home to the loving arms of his Savior, on August 16th. “Wil” as he preferred, was born August 9, 1928, in Sheridan, to Christian and Anna (Kostel) Gosch. He married the love of his life, Marian (Harvey) Gosch in 1950, and became the best father any five children could hope for.

Wil was a lifetime member of the NRA and was a proud American. After school he went to work with his father in his small masonry business, he then went on to work at the VA Hospital where he later retired. Wil was a talented marksman, hunter, fisherman, and a lover of camping from his youth. He loved spending time with his family, and loved to be at the lake, in the mountains, or just outdoors any time he could. The home that he shared with Marian over the past six years continued to give him an awesome view of his beloved Bighorn Mountains. Rest well sweet Husband, Papa, Grandpa, Brother…

Wil is preceded in death by his parents, Christian, and Anna (Kostel) Gosch; two brothers, George and Christopher Gosch; three sisters, Bernice Kinter, Marjorie Bolton, and Katherine Rathburn; and dear nieces and nephews.

Eleven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild, and many dear cousins, nieces, and nephews.
