Terry W. Koch, known as “TW,” passed away Nov. 4, 2010.
He was born in the early 1950s in upstate New York and then moved with his family to California at age 3. After living in Steamboat Springs with his wife and daughters for 11 years, he returned to California six years ago.
Terry was a framing contractor by trade. Known for his quick wit, wicked sense of humor and musical prowess, TW was also an ingenious storyteller who had a joke for every occasion.
Terry is survived by his wife, Sue; daughters Emily and Becky; father, Fred; and brother Kevin. He is preceded in death by his mother, Vera; and brother Tom.
There will be a celebration of TW’s life in spring 2011. Terry’s daughters request that donations be made to Heifer International at www.heifer.org, in memory of their father, Terry William Koch.
