Gerald was born on January 20, 1960, in Cascade, Iowa, the son of Fred and Delores (Besler) Hosch. He married the love of his life, Susan (Roethler) Hosch, on October 18, 1980, in Placid, Iowa. Later they moved to Cuba City, Wisconsin to farm. Together they had five beautiful children. Gerald was an amazing husband, father and papa. He was a great example of strength and determination.
Gerald was an active member of the Saint Rose of Lima Parish and the Knights of Columbus. He retired from Camso in January 2020.
He enjoyed camping and you might have seen him with a Busch Light in his hand. If he was not camping, you would find him in the garage where he was always working on a woodworking project for someone. He enjoyed UTV riding and playing games with his family. He especially loved his grandkids. Gerald had a witty personality with some great under his breath comments to give his opinion. The best was his "shitty" grin when he was up to something.
Gerald is survived by his children, Robert (Daphne) Hosch, Juda, WI, Nicholas (Amber) Hosch, Blair, NE, Matthew (Jenna) Hosch, Sherrill, IA, Kristi (Ryan) Brunton, and Jamie (Ciara) Hosch, both of Cuba City, WI; his 12 beautiful grandchildren, Toby, Devon, Micheal, Riley, Corbin, Avriel, Ashton, Auriana, Ellie, Wyatt, Ayla, and Aspyn; his mother, Delores Hosch, Epworth, IA; his siblings, Kathy (Dick) Lahey, Kenny (Darla) Hosch, Joe (Teresa) Hosch, Dave (Mary) Hosch, Sheri (Steve) Tucker, Darla (Dan) Jasper, Lisa (Roger) Ostwinkle, Donnie (Karen) Hosch, and Rob (Kate) Hosch; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Kathy (Tim) Griffin, Cindy (Ronnie) Wood, Rick Roethler, Jim (Kathy) Roethler, and Karen (Gus) Langas; and his many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 40 beautiful years, Susan Hosch; his father, Fred Hosch; his father-in-law, Frank Roethler and mother-in-law, Shirley Conrad; a brother-in-law, Freddie Roethler; nephew, Dale Roethler; and a great-nephew, Brecken Dupont.
