Obituary for Christopher D. Cozy


Christopher D. Cozy
 
Christopher D. Cozy, 30, of Onalaska, died Sunday, March 13, 2011, at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center, La Crosse.
He was born October 25, 1980, in La Crosse to Douglas and Therese (Lanzel) Cozy.  Chris attended Logan High School in La Crosse and Sparta High School.  On December 20, 2006, he married Grace Jandt at St. John's Lutheran Church in Barre Mills.  As a young boy, he was a member of the La Crosse Boys Choir and continued his love of music by teaching himself how to play the guitar, which was a passion of his.  Chris was employed at City Brewery in La Crosse for over 8 years.  When he wasn't working he enjoyed fishing and especially spending time with his family and friends.  Remembering memories of Chris being a competitive horseshoe player will always bring a smile to the faces of his family.
