Loving husband and family man, Karl Heinz Koch was born in 1939 in Zweinart, Germany. He lived through the second world war as a young child, living through all of the harrowing experiences associated with it. Coming to America at the age of 17, he forged a new life for himself in Canada and later in the U.S. He worked for the U.S.D.A., IBM and General Electric, as well as banks as a computer programmer and manager. He had friends who were steadfast in every city in which he lived and he proved that the American Dream was alive for those who dared to reach out and take it. He served in the United States Air Force in Laredo, TX for four years.
He was predeceased by his parents, Anton Koch & Charlotte Koch; brothers, Klaus Koch and Joachim Koch.
Survivors include his loving wife, Nancy D. Koch; son, Russell (Vivian) Wilson; Lauren (Scott) Melton, Ben Humphreys and grandchildren, Abriana, Kyla and Noa Wilson and Ryan & Declan Melton.
