Ron Koch

March 7, 1941 - September 10, 2022

Ron Koch passed away September 10, 2022 at the age of 81.

He was the loving brother of Judith Koch and Rebekah (Gregory) Cook; cherished uncle of Matthew Cook and dear son of the late Albert and late Josephine Koch. Ron also leaves his boy and faithful companion, Scout.

Ron was born in Detroit on March 7, 1941 to Albert and Josephine Koch. He attended and graduated from St. Elizabeth Catholic High School and went onto serve his country in the United States Army. Following his discharge, Ron completed his associate’s degree and started his career as a designer and draftsman for the automotive industry.

Ron was a perfectionist, skilled in both building and repairing. He loved his black Labradors and had them trained to win ribbons at field trials. Ron enjoyed traveling Up North and loved to bring his dogs and watch them play in the water. Ron had a wonderful sense of humor with a long repertoire of one-liners which will not be forgotten.  He enjoyed watching the trees change color in the fall and recently planted several new trees based on the color they would provide to all.  Ron’s caring soul will be truly missed by his beloved family and friends.

Ron’s family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 14th, from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. Rosary Service at McCabe Funeral Home, 31950 W. 12 Mile Rd., Farmington Hills.
