Helping out in a hard time

Giving help to the family who is going through a hardship of losing there dearest brother, uncle , cousin and son . At this untimely matter we are mourning the loss of Derek Koch .  A talented and very skilled young man with great potential taken away from us too soon . We ask that you donate what you can and even if you cannot provide anything financial we would appreciate your continuous love and support to help us all grieve easier while we adjust to the loss of such a great young man .

A hard working and loving individual who always lived everyday with a smile. He enjoyed biking at the skate park with friends or working as the lead at his night club . He was known for his great work ethic and the being the best bouncer around . Always was professional and always showed everybody up by being the best dressed in a fancy black suit with his signature Audio hat .

‘To some we lost a friend , to others we lost a loved one , whichever the case if you had the pleasure of knowing this guy you knew that he was one of those with a genuinely good heart . 

He was simple and only wanted to make music and be around good people , those who got close knew his passion for music was just about everything that kept him motivated and he worked on his craft everyday long hours into the night . He loved hanging with friends and neighbors teaching the children how to ride bikes and play music like the trumpet , drums and piano . And when he wasn’t working on music he was a household power house who could help you fix anything around the house and even cars . A man of so many skills and talents he was loved for things he loved . 

We as a family , only ask that donate if you can and not bring no stress upon yourself in doing so . We would like to thank you in the future for all the support our family has received from everybody . The check ins , texts , phones calls etc. all showing how great of a man Derek Koch was and it helps knowing he touched so many great and amazing people .

Thank you , Koch Family .
