Koch, Gordon Ralph, age 78, it is with great shock and sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Gordon on December 17, 2014 in St. Augustine, Florida. Born in Detroit, Michigan on May 30, 1936. Son of the late Gordon J. and the late Eleanor (Bartley) Koch. He was a father, husband, grandfather, son, and brother. Husband of 43 years on December 16, 2014 to Mary (Garbarino) Koch. Father of Kurt, Kerstin Litvak, and the late Karla Whisnant. Brother of Richard Koch. Gordon also leaves behind seven grandchildren, Alexandra, Natalie and Jacob Litvak, and Brianne (Griego), Brandon, Brent and Blair Whisnant; as well as numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. His wishes were to have no official ceremony. The family asks that you raise a glass and tell a memorable story in his honor. Think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched - for nothing loved is ever lost. And he was loved so much.Published in Daily Tribune on Dec. 21, 2014+Read More Share Listen to Obituary Remember Share a message, photo, or video below View all messages 3 "My Dearest Mary and Family , There are no words that can..."
