    My deepest sympathy to you Marion and Allen. You were blessed to have him so long but I guess that makes the loss harder. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Gary Euler

    I’ll always have very fond memories of Mr. Koch. Always willing to chat, friendly, laughed easy. A good man. I’m sure he touched your lives in so many good ways and those happy memories will sustain you. I’m sorry I’ll miss the viewing, but please know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Paul and June Loedding

    Dear Alan, Tina and Mrs. Koch,

    Please accept our sincere sympathy on the passing of your Father, Father-in-law, and Husband. We regret that we cannot express our sympathy in person at the funeral home because of a previous family commitment.
    You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    Paul and June
