The last time I spoke with Fr Koch was August 1989 just prior to marrying my wife, Judy. He offered some advice and kind words regarding my marriage plans. He was a gentle caring man. Greg Boyes, Class of 1974.

I had just met a girl , who I quickly fell in love with, and, she was a convert to the Catholic church but knew little of it,s teachings and beliefs. I finally talked her into meeeti9nt with Fr Pat. She renewed her faith...

All I can say is that I loved Fr. Koch. I met him in 1993 as part of my work study. I spoke very little to him, although he always greeted me with a warm smile that radiated immense energy. His kindness was infectious and only the best of people were drawn to him. I miss you Fr. Koch - may we all learn to be and act like your example.
