Kenneth (Butch) Eugene Koscher
June 18, 1950-June 25, 2020
South Bend-Kenneth (Butch) Eugene Koscher went to his Heavenly home on Thursday, June 25 at 430 am. He was born on June 18, 1950 to the union of Wayne D. and Catherine (Tolson) Koscher. Kenny passed one week after his 70th birthday. Kenny was preceded in death by his parents; best friends, Chuck Edmundson and James Freeman and his canine buddy, Emma.
Kenny married his best friend, Jacqueline (Jackie Hill) Koscher on March 4, 1983. They enjoyed 37 years of wedded bliss. He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline; four brothers, Howard (Lori) of Mishawaka, Tom (Kathy) of South Bend, Terry of South Bend and Kevin (Tonia) of Bristol, and a sister, Christine of Michigan; two daughters, Rhonda (James) Wilson of South Bend and Marcia Artusi of Fishers; seven grandchildren; six greatgrandchildren; a multitude of nieces and nephews, and his canine pals, Rufus and Millie.
Kenny worked in the towing service industry and selling/repairing/painting cars. He enjoyed attending races at the family owned M40 speedway in Jones, Michigan, Notre Dame Football, NASCAR, local stock car racing, fishing and loved dining out. Kenny never met a stranger and would talk to anyone. He also loved playing Santa Claus to children who usually “stole” a couple bucks from his hand. Kenny will be deeply missed by his loving wife, family and friends. Memorials may be given in Kenny’s name to St. Joseph County Humane Society South Bend or Pet Rescue.
