In Tribute of Joe Cosgrove

Created by The Joe Cosgrove Family

Joe Cosgrove

Joseph Stewart Cosgrove, age 57, of Kenilworth lost his courageous 10-year battle with multiple myeloma on July 2, 2019. He was the beloved husband of Linda Cosgrove nee Arce; devoted and loving father of Claire, Patrick and Margaret; dutiful son of Sandy and the late Jerry Cosgrove; dear brother of Ann Cosgrove (Lyle) Menzel, John Cosgrove, and Mike (Karen) Cosgrove; fond nephew and uncle of many.

Joe was born in Milwaukee and raised in Kenilworth. He graduated from The Joseph Sears School, New Trier High School and the University of Notre Dame, Class of 1984.

He was a successful businessman whose career included associations with IBM, Solomon Brothers, and Strong Capital Management. When his career was cut short because of his illness he became a loyal and beloved volunteer at Misericordia.

He will be remembered for his unwavering commitment to his Catholic faith, his special devotion to the Blessed Mother, and his immense love for his family especially his wife Linda and his children, Claire, Patrick, and Margaret. All who knew Joe loved and admired his gentle spirit and the manner in which he lived his life despite all of his health challenges. Taken from us far too soon, may he rest in peace. Go Irish.
