David Don Koski, 72, of Rockford went up to heaven on Saturday, September 17, 2016.  Born August 8, 1944 in DeKalb, IL to Carl and Dora (Mosher) Koski.  David married his sweetie, Gail Sherven, on December 15, 1973. Together, they raised four kids, of whom he was immensely proud:  Lisa (Dawn) Koski of Janesville, WI; John (Christy) Koski of Wichita Falls, TX; Katie (Gordie) Johnson of Roscoe, IL; and Daniel (Paola) Koski currently of Tirana, Albania.

David is survived by his wife; his children; his 11 grandchildren; and his sister, Karen Koski-Udell of Sturgeon, MO.  He is predeceased by his parents.

Please join his family at Roscoe United Methodist Church to celebrate this special man.  Visitation is scheduled for Friday, September 23, from 4:30PM to 7:30PM and the Funeral on Saturday, September 24, at 11:00AM.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the RUMC Endowment Fund.  Honquest Family Funeral Home with Crematory is honored to assist the family.
