Raymond Kosinski Obituary

Raymond A. Kosinski, age 84, of Schererville (formerly of Hessville) passed away on Wednesday, January 3, 2024. He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Marilyn; his children: Alan Kosinski, Barbara Herring, Diane (Ed) Figuly, and Marianne (Rob) Dorsey; grandchildren: Johnny (Shannon) Herring, Melissa Herring, Ian Figuly (Claire McMahon), Brittany Figuly (Aleksandar Marinkovic), Elise and Leah Dorsey; his great-grandchildren:  Austin, Emory, August, and Nevyn.

He was preceded in death by his parents Stanley and Mary Kosinski and his son Carl Kosinski.

Ray was a deeply respectful man of God.  Ray adored his wife, loved his children fiercely and doted over his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Among a countless number of things Ray will be remembered for his wonderful way of storytelling.  Whether they were of the admiration he had of his family, his many lifelong friends, his time in Sunny Side in East Chicago or all the stories of his 35 years at Inland Steel.  He had a beautiful voice and on many occasions over the years could be heard singing a multitude of different songs to his wife, kids and grandkids expressing his love, soothing their pain, helping them fall asleep or making you laugh by changing up lyrics to songs.  His sense of humor never wavered, even at the end of his life.

Ray was also a very giving man, whether it was to his church, his family, or his friends.  Ray was a man of his word. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and you always knew where you stood with him.  Ray was a member of St. James the Less Catholic church in Highland. He retired from Inland Steel after 35 years and was a member of the Steel Workers Union Local 1010.  Ray loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing.  He was a true family man.  Ray was respected by many; he will be missed by more and loved by all who were in his life.  Please continue to look out for us and protect us.  But don't worry about us, we will be okay.  Rest in Peace Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend, we all love you!
