John E Sosalla, 63, of Blair, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 18th, 2019.
Johnny, son of Adolph and Colette (Karash) Sosalla, was born on November 29, 1955, and was a lifelong resident of Trempealeau County. He married the love of his life, Marlene Sonsalla, on May 27th, 1978.
John was a passionate and devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, farmer, and friend. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone.
