Koch a dedicated professional

I have known Mr. Koch his entire life. I am his uncle on his mother’s side. Having spent years welcoming him and his family home after their numerous Iowa returns I can say Mr. Koch is a dedicated and loyal professional. I have had the best fortune of visiting Alaska and lived with Rick in Barrow, Palmer, Anchorage and Kenai. His love for his state is genuine and boundless. A small share of his Alaskan spirit is present in me and my family. Our visits to Talkeetna and the homestead are burned deep into my memory and that I cherish. But back to the man: You have not lost him he is just around the corner waiting to do even more for his city and state. Hope to see you soon, Mr. Koch. Best wishes for your future and that of my adopted home, Alaska.
