Obituary for Dale R. Koch

Koch, Dale R.
Age 81, on Sunday, July 5, 2020 of Brentwood, went home to his Savior and Lord.

Dale had a strong faith in his Lord and was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church, Brentwood. Dale forgot no one; his daily prayer list was long.

Dale was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond (Emma) Koch and his twin brother, David Koch. He is survived by his brother Ronald (Shirley) Koch of Phoenix, Arizona; nephews Dennis (Linda) Koch, Dwight (Debra) Koch and niece, Cheryl (Charles) Gilliam.

Dale was a graduate of Carrick High School. He started his long banking career with Brookline Savings Bank as a loan officer. Dale retired from National City Bank as a collector. Dale was a big fan of major league baseball. He looked forward to watching as many possible games of the Pittsburgh Pirates, along with other teams as he could watch in a baseball season on television. Dale was also active in social clubs within his apartment complex and enjoyed bingo and other games that would be played. Dale especially looked forward to traveling to Arizona on a yearly basis to visit with his brother and sister-in-law.

Visitation and services will be held privately. Arrangements by John F. Slater Funeral Home, Inc., 412-881-4100, 4201 Brownsville Rd., Brentwood 15227. His family and friends are asking that in lieu of flowers, any donations be made in his memory to Zion Lutheran Church, 4301 Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15236.
