Rifleman Reuben Kossick was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1896, in South Shields, the son of Newcastle-born auctioneer David and Dora Kossick (née Cassell), who died in 1898. His father remarried, in 1901, to Essie Garbutt. At the time of the 1911 census, the Kossick family were residing at 67 Osbourne Avenue. 

Kossick died on 11 April 1917, during the Arras Offensive, while serving with the 13th (Service) Battalion, The King's Royal Rifle Corps. A younger brother, Lawrence, a private with the 26th Northumberland Fusiliers, died two months later, on 5 June.

He has no known grave and is commemorated by the Arras Memorial.
