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.
