Robert "Bob" Koch, Sr. - Southport

Robert “Bob” Koch, Sr. of Southport, NC and formerly of Chatham, NY, passed away February 25th surrounded by his family.

Bob was born on August 11, 1935 in Albany, NY to the late Paul and Kathleen Koch. After graduating from Chatham High School, he enlisted in the Army. After his military service he went to work at Crellin Plastics in Chatham where he remained for his entire career. Bob was an active member of the Chatham Volunteer Fire Department for decades and he made many dear friends there. He enjoyed living in Chatham and lived there until he retired in 1997 and moved to Southport, NC. Bob had fifteen wonderful years of retirement in North Carolina where he enjoyed the warm weather and was able to pursue his loves of gardening, fishing and cooking.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 52 years Judith (Wheeler) Koch; his children Kathleen Morrone, Robert Koch, Jr., and Lynnette Koch; grandchildren Christopher Abrams and Sarah Abrams; and great-grandson Cameron Abrams. He is also survived by his brother Paul Koch (Anita) and two nephews.

To honor Bob’s wishes there will be no formal services.

In lieu of flowers donations in Bob’s name may be made to the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 11454, Alexandria, VA 22312.
