Steven Neal Hosch, 32, went to be with Jesus Monday April 29, 2019. Steve was born Oct. 24, 1986, in Danville to Christopher and Deborah (Wayland) Hosch.
Steve graduated from Danville High School in 2005, he continued his education at Fresno City College, and went on to graduate from North Park University, Chicago, in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business, with a concentration in accounting.
Steve loved soccer. He started for the varsity soccer teams at all three of those schools. Steve even went on to work for U.S. Soccer, traveling the world with all of their teams. Sports was a big part of Steve's life and as an adult he enjoyed running, nature, hiking, and playing in adult soccer leagues. Steve resided in Scottsdale, Ariz., where he was employed as a staff accountant at Bro Retail.
Steve's faith, family and friends were his prized possessions. He was very grateful for the love and support he received from his family and friends. Anyone that came in contact with Steve immediately felt at ease and he made them feel important. A friend wrote: "We're going to miss you very much! Your smile and laugh will forever be remembered in our hearts. You were one of the kindest and coolest guys I've ever met."
Survivors include his father and mother; a brother, Andrew; a niece, Scarlett; and grandmother, Jane Hosch, all residing in Danville; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Steve was preceded in death by his grandparents, William and Mary Alice Wayland and Harlan Hosch; also four cousins, Lori Kelly, Jennifer Kelly, David Link and Julie Link.
A Celebration of Steve's life will be held on Saturday, May 25, 2019, at 1 p.m. at Kennekuk County Park Mallard Point Shelter, 22296 Henning Road, Danville, IL 61834, with Reverend Randall Robinson and Pastor Greg Boylan officiating.

A gathering will be held prior to the service from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mallard Point in Kennekuk County Park.

I had the absolute honor and privilege to work along side Steven at U.S. Soccer and was proud to call him a friend. Every room he entered was made so much brighter with his larger than life smile. My sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.

I am so sorry to hear of Steven's passing. I knew him from his time working with me on US Soccer's Paralympic National Team. He was always a willing and harder worker who was extremely popular with both the players and staff. He was always there with a smile, enthusiasm and a love of soccer. Rest peacefully.

I officiated many of Steve's varsity soccer games while he was at DHS. He was always respectful and a very talented player. May he rest in piece. My condolences to the entire family.
