Koch, E. Edward ( Ed)
November 27, 1936 - October 28, 2014
E. Edward (Ed) Koch passed away peacefully at the Peter Lougheed Center on the morning of October 28, 2014 following a brief battle with Lymphoma. His beloved wife of 46 years Deanna Koch was by his side. He is survived by his children Robynne Koch, Meagan Schroeder (Brock Schroeder) granddaughters Waverly and Marlow, Kingsley Koch (Sabrina Koch) his grandsons Greysen and Macade and his trusty four legged companion Willy. Ed was born in the small town of Ormiston, Saskatchewan on November 27, 1936. Forever following his own path he eventually made his way to Calgary where he married the woman that would remain by his side for the eventful years ahead. Ed often credited the many long term friendships he established as a member of the Kinsmen Club of Calgary for assisting him in making his way in the ‘big city’. Part of this journey included a decision late in life to further his education and he proudly became a professional engineer at the age of 36. Pursuing various career paths following his return to school the latter half of his life was in the field of commercial real estate. A consummate family man Ed was most happy enjoying and sharing the home cooking of his wife and the fellowship that made his house a home to many. Please join us to share in a celebration of his life at Gasoline Alley Mezzanine Level located at Heritage Park (1900 Heritage Dr SW, Calgary, AB) on Sunday, November 9, 2014 at 1:00pm.
