John Sosalla

November 29, 1955 — March 18, 2019

John E Sosalla, 63, of Blair, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 18th, 2019.
Johnny, son of Adolph and Colette (Karash) Sosalla, was born on November 29, 1955 and was a lifelong resident of Trempealeau County. He married the love of his life, Marlene Sonsalla, on May 27th, 1978.
John was a passionate and devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, farmer, and friend. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. His simplistic gentle nature was known best by those closest to him, especially his grandchildren and animals. He was so very proud of his children and grandchildren.
Johnny worked for Carhart Seeds for 25 years before retirement. He loved living life on Square Bluff with Marlene and they were inseparable. Together they found the best local places to eat and loved sharing laughs with everyone they met.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years; Marlene, mother; Colette, sons; Darcy (Karla) Sonsalla, Bobby (Danielle Arndt ) Sosalla, Brad Sosalla, daughter; Denise (Neal) Schank, six grandchildren; Ryker and Renon Sonsalla, Adyson Sosalla, Nolan, Nora, and Devin Schank, sister; Cindy (Ric) Hagen, brother; David (Rita), sister in law, Cheryl (David) Kamla.
