Douglas Elwood Schosker

March 12, 1956 ~ December 13, 2021 (age 65)


Douglas Elwood Schosker, age 65 of Osceola, passed away on December 13, 2021.  Douglas was born March 12, 1956, in Mishawaka, Indiana to the late Elwood N. and Phyllis J. (Speckman) Schosker.  On July 20, 1990, Douglas married Nina Strausser at the East United Methodist Church in Mishawaka, Indiana. 

He is survived by his wife Nina of Osceola and their sons: Bryan (Megan) Schosker of Erie, Colorado and Nicholas Schosker of Mishawaka, his sister Lori (James) Adams of South Bend, his brother, Michael Schosker of Mishawaka, his grandchildren Chase Schosker and Laine Schosker, a brother-in-law, Dan Grunden of North Liberty and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister Debbie Grunden.

The family will greet family and friends on Saturday December 18th at Mr. G’s Restaurant & Lounge, 708 Lincolnway W., Osceola, IN 46561 starting at noon and an open-ended time will conclude thereafter.

 Doug enjoyed hunting small game animals and fishing. He was the owner and operator of Schosker Roofing and throughout his life he enjoyed construction trade work where he served his clients ethically and always provided “over the top” customer service.  He will be remembered as a man who was fiercely loyal, honest and fair, and protective of his family and closest friends.  At times, Doug could be stubborn, but deep down he was a gentle giant.

 Doug enjoyed pulling pranks on his friends and family.  In his spare time, he loved to shoot pool at Club 15 and the Wooden Shoe in Mishawaka.  He was always eager to learn new things and research topics related to the subject he was inquisitive about so he could talk with others about them later. Most of all, Doug loved being a husband, dad, and “Papa” to his family.
