KOCH, Walter
5 juillet 2021

Walter Koch, passed away at the age of 87 after a courageous battle of the heart. He filled his life to the brim, and those around him — with optimism, humor and generosity. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Walter, whether old friend or new, can attest to his ingenuity, pioneer spirit and infectious love of life. He was an avid e-cyclist, passionate about his Audi, CCR-Noranda, and his home team: Bayern München. Skat player extraordinaire, in his last days he was teaching himself how to become an expert in mushroom growing, and his new iPad Pro. He loved his family, friends, world travel (from Montreal to Germany, Vienna, Florida and back), a satisfying round of golf, and his Krombacher.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Elfi; daughters Britta and Astrid; son-in-law Jim, and family Hubert, Hildegard, Cornelia, Eva, Tobias, Suzan, Stephan, Nicole, Saskia and Tobias.

We will miss Walter beyond belief, but will continue to be consoled and inspired by his simple daily mantra:  «follow the sunshine…»

    My deepest condolences to the Koch family.
    I never had the opportunity to thank Mr Koch for his confidence and support in my appointment at CCR. The job that I thought would be a temporary one, the time for me to complete university, turned out to be a most interesting and motivating career for me for more than forty years. I am grateful to have known you Walter, Elfi, Britta and Astrid, you each had a big influence in my life. You will always remain in my heart and my thoughts.
