Sad to hear of his passing. Condolences to Bevin, Ashley and the rest of his family and friends.
I am proud to have known this fine firefighter/paramedic. Jon will be missed.
Dad, You were the most wonderful and caring dad. You were not just any other ordinary dad, you were "super-dad" you would take us to anyplace we needed to go. We always found something to do, such as walks or take bike-rides and just have father/daughter time, I will miss our talks about sports, family, or work. You were the best dad, and I love you and I will miss you very much!!!
Our Deepest Sympathy to Jon's family from the Class of 1965.Our thoughts & prayers are with you.
Sorry to hear of Jon's death. Always enjoyed talking with Jon. Dennis Naidl. Green Bay
My condolences to the family during this sad time. (Psalm 18:2) ~ Nicky
Deepest sympathies to Jon's family. The Koch's and Mullins families go'wayback' with many fond memories. Personally Jon was a sweet guy, always a'He-e-y how are you...how're your girls' as we both raised families in Manty. I moved to Madison several years ago but bumped into Jon now and again. Over the past few days my mother expressed her sympathies as did siblings who mentioned Jon or one of his siblings and memories of happier times. I send positive hopeful expressions of comfort and peace to each of you. Jayne Mullins (Madison) and daughters Laura Mullins-Livieri and Katie Norman-Brull.
All of my prayers and love continually for Jon and his family. You were and always will be treasured in my heart.
My deepest sympathy to all of Jon's family. I was a classmate at Holy Innocents and Roncalli. We have lost a wonderful person and a gentleman. He is smiling down on us all. Mary Kay (Haug) Bianchi
My thoughts and many prayers to Jon's family. I was privileged to know Jon as a neighbor and then through the Fire Dept. and him coming to Aurora with patients. He was always smiling and was a great paramedic. He will be missed! I pray that God keeps all of you in His loving arms.
Uncle Jon will be greatly missed. We are thinking about you during this time and send our deepest sympathy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Koch family at this difficult time. I remember Jon as a child when all the cousins would visit Grandma and Grandpa Herman and play together. May your wonderful memories of Jon be a comfort to you.
A beautiful eulogy. I will miss my uncle and pray for Ashley, Bevin, Merry, my grandmother, my aunts, and all our family. He was a steady, caring presence in all of our lives and I still can't believe he is gone. May the Lord receive him and grant him grace and peace in a goodness that this world is only a pale shadow of.
Jon was such a quiet, wonderful man. I saw him in action, once, when I witnessed a car accident and he was on the scene. I will never forget how compassionate, kind and caring he was with everyone. And he always had that little twinkle in his eyes. We'll keep all of you in our hearts and prayers. Love, Chuck and Anna Stockman
Our most heartfelt condolences to the Koch family. -may the Angels lead him in-
Ashley, Bevin and Family - please accept my deepest sympathy in Jon's passing. It's a honor to have known and worked with such a great man. Jon always carried himself with poise and character never complaining of anything and always giving to others. He will be missed.
I am so sorry to hear of jons passing.
Jon was a great classmate during my four years at Roncalli. He always had a joke and a smile. We had a great time last summer at the 40th class reunion. He will be missed! Ellen Schmitt Runnoe
Our deepest sympathies to the Koch family. Mac worked with Jon and has many fond memories! What a great guy. He will be missed.
I had the pleasure of seeing Jon at work and the kindness and compassion he showed to others was a testament how he lived his life. He was so very very caring. He will be greatly missed. His family is in my prayers.
It was my honor and privilege to work with you and be your friend. You blessed my life in many ways. Our family will miss you. Truly, you made this world a better place. The ultimate peace and joy that you deserve, is now yours. May God keep you and your entire family close in his arms.
The world has lost a bright shining light.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God help to heal your hearts.
Dear Merry,Bevin and Ashely we are so sorry to hear about Jon. We will always remember his warm smile and laugh. You are in our prayers and thoughts at this sad time.
