Bruce Allen Hosek, 60, of Lawrence, KS passed away on Thursday, February 25, 2021. The family will greet friends at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, with a Celebration of Life to follow at 4:30 p.m. at Warren-McElwain Mortuary in Lawrence. A live-stream of the service will be available on Warren- McElwain Mortuary website.

Bruce was born on January 16, 1961 in Winner, SD, the son of Herman and Aileen Hosek and the youngest of five children.

He graduated from Winner High School, where he was involved in band and chorus.

Music continued to be a central part of Bruce's life, playing the drums and singing in bands. His faith in Christ was his foundation. He served on worship teams, loved others deeply, and had a gentle, loving spirit. Bruce approached life with an open heart and open arms, often being a listening ear to those hurting. He enjoyed his career as a Project Supervisor and was responsible for the success of many multi-million-dollar projects throughout the US. However, he rarely talked about the job itself but rather always shared stories about the wonderful co-workers, staff, and bosses he met along the way. Oftentimes, he could be found reminding his men that God and family come first. His children and grandchildren were the joy of his life.

Survivors include his children, Anna Needham married to Ben, of Canadian, TX; Alexander Hosek married to Laura, of Lawrence, KS; Abigail Pryor married to Nathan, of Topeka, KS; and his six grandchildren. He is also survived by four siblings, Dave Hosek married to Darla, of Lawrence, KS, Diane Nemec married to Victor, of Holabird, SD, Duane Hosek, of Winner, SD, and Cheryl Hosek of Winner, SD; as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

I knew Bruce growing up as a kid, his son Alex and I were good friends. I remember working for him doing drywall at Sunflower Bank(?) in only construction experience. Bruce was a kind man, I remember a sparky sense of humor. I feel his time may have come too soon but only God knew what his plan was and in end its God's plan alone that matters. R.I.P more worries, stresses, pains or sorrows...just eternity. Your race is over.
