Alois J. Brosch, Jr., 82, passed away peacefully on May 15, 2017. He was born to parents, Alois and Julia Dornak Brosch on December 29, 1934 in Hallettsville, TX. He married Edwina Mikolajchak on June 22, 1957 at Christ the King Catholic Church in Houston, TX.

Alois showed his love and support for family and friends in many ways. He gave much of his time and support to the Catholic schools by serving on the school boards of St. Charles Borromeo Elementary School, Seton Catholic Junior High School, and St. Pius X High School while his children were in attendance. He also spent many hours working with various organizations at Assumption Catholic Church throughout the years. Alois was employed many years by DSI Transports, Inc., from where he retired. He loved the outdoors and all it had to offer from gardening to fishing, or just playing around with the kids in the backyard. He could be challenged to a game of dominoes at any time - loving the game of 42.
