He was born on September 29, 1961 in Chicago to George and Marge (Brown) Koch.
He operated the Village Green House and Red’s City Limits in Utica.
To have George as a friend was a good thing. He played hard, loved hard and gave it his all as a person. In the end he did it his way. The man lived in full tilt and gave it a good run. George is already so very much missed by so many whose lives he touched. Rest in peace George, and fly with the angels.
