Proud father to Debbie (Steve) Fenney and the late Dee Dee Gosse. Doting grandfather to Stacy (Chris) Hofman. Leon ("PeeWee") was the fourth child of Fred and Ina Gosse's creatively nicknamed seven: Fred Jr. ("Bunny"), Vernon ("Mousie"), John ("Jackie"), Merle ("Squirley"), Darlene ("Huck"), and Dona (strangely no nickname)! He will further be remembered and missed by his sister-in-law, LaVonne Biedenbender, many nieces, nephews and so many dear friends. He served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He retired from Pabst Brewing Co. after 38 years of dedicated service and diligently continued to fervently support the brand. He was a member of the American Legion Post 449 and the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 49. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, September 22, from 4:00 PM until time of service at 7:00 PM along with military honors. Private interment. In lieu of flowers or memorials, we encourage you to honor Leon's generous spirit and jovial nature by simply doing something kind for someone else in his memory. If you are reading this, he considered you a special person in his life. Leon's quick wit and sense of humor will be so greatly missed.
