William ""Billy"" Kochis Obituary
KOCHIS, WILLIAM "BILLY"; age 29; of Traverse City, formerly of Oxford; September 10 2013. Loving husband of Shannon; cherished daddy of Sophia, Porter, Josslyn, and Brooks; dear son of Gary and Diann Kochis; brother of Paul (Molly) Kochis and Meghann (Matt) Holbrook; son-in-law of Terrie and Joe Gerbe; brother-in-law of Danielle (Paul ) Bielby, Joe (Marla) Gerbe, Jeff (Gina) Gerbe, Breanne (Rob) Wright, and Nathan (Brennan) Gerbe. On Tuesday September 10, 2013 we lost the most amazing man our family has ever known. My brother Billy Kochis had a way of lighting the way for everyone he ever came across. He was the best brother, husband, father, son, friend, that anyone would ever imagine having; and for those who know him, that is a well supported fact. He and Shannon have four of the most beautiful and amazing children that you could ever imagine, and a life that was lovingly directed towards the stuff marriage and family are truly meant to be for many years to come. These surreal moments don't give us a heads up, and while they rip us down and show us how delicate life truly is, they force us to change forever inside, and move forward with those we love in our life regardless of where they may be. I love you Billy, and you are my big brother, even if I am older than you. Love Always, Paul, our family, the Gerbe family, and all your friends. Billy, I love you with all my heart, and I'll see you in our beautiful children's eyes until the day we meet again. <3U4E, Shannon Memorial Mass Saturday, September 14, 2013, 10:30 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 715 N.
