Michael Joseph Koch

June 30, 1946 — May 5, 2021

Michael Joseph Koch, 74, of Waterloo, IL, died May 5, 2021, in O'Fallon, IL. He was born June 30, 1946, in St. Louis, MO.

He is survived by his wife Nancy Koch; daughter Emily (Jacob Mueth) Koch; sons Michael Koch and Richard Koch; children from first marriage Jeffery, Angela, and Mary; sister Marilyn Pickett; sister-in-law Jeanette Koch; dear nieces; nephews and their children and their children's children.

Michael is preceded in death by his parents Adolf & Mary Catherine (nee Craig) Koch and brother Richard Koch.

He was a member of 1st Baptist Church in Columbia, Illinois, National Rifle Association, and an avid car fan. Michael loved racing - anything with wheels, and in his younger years, he even raced his own car. His employment even was about cars, as he was a body man, appraiser, and claims adjuster. He also enjoyed hunting with his family and playing the banjo with his brother Rick. Michael was very humorous. His humor was quick and he loved joking with friends and loved ones. Above all else, he loved helping people. His kindness, thoughtfulness, and loving ways will be missed.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
New Life Evangelical Center
or Wounded Warriors

Memorial Service:
3 PM Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Cross Keys Baptist Church in 14255 New Halls Ferry Road, Florissant, MO 63033
