Ralph Gosselin

Ralph Gosselin, 89, passed away Jan. 7, 2022. 

He was the son of Clarence Gosselin and Clara Weber Gosselin, born Oct. 14, 1932, and raised in Greeley, Colo.  He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Henry and Les; his sister, Marjorie; and his son, Joe.

Ralph graduated from Regis College and later received his master’s degree from the University of Colorado, and then served in the military during the Korean War.  After his military service, he married Donna Mae Bunk in May 1960 and worked for several financial firms.  During this time, he was active in the NASD and was on the national board of directors from 1978 to 1981.  

In 1982, Ralph retired to his farm in Wisconsin, where he found a good life as a gentlemen farmer and worked as the Wellington Township Clerk and part time for the Wilton Post Office.  Coming to Wisconsin was like coming home for Ralph; both of his parent were Wisconsin natives, and his great grandfather, Eloi, was one of the original Wisconsin pioneers back in 1849.

Ralph is survived by his amazing wife, Donna; his sons, Steve (Carol) and Bob (Margaret), his daughter-in-law, Gloria, and his son, Tom (Jen); and 13 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. 

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial Service will be held at later date at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Kendall.

The Smith-Nelson Funeral Home is assisting with arrangements. Online condolences can be offered by visiting www.sonnenburgfamilyfh.com.
