Koch and Andreas R. Koch, and their father, James J. Koch; many nieces, nephews, and in-laws.  Born in Nebraska, the family moved to Bovina, NY when Charles was young.  He attended a one-room schoolhouse and graduated from Delaware Academy. He earned his BS. in Agriculture from Cornell University, and was the owner/operator of the Rableler Dairy Farm in Bovina.  He was later employed as a real estate agent in Syracuse and was an award-winning salesperson for Pitney-Bowes and IBA Agricultural Sales.  After college, Charles married Marianne, his beautiful wife, to whom he was dearly devoted.  Charles was a faithful Lutheran.  He was also a skilled pinochle, ping-pong, chess player and cake decorator.  The family will hold a private funeral service and burial will be in Woodland Cemetery in Delhi at a later date.  In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Parkinson's Foundation at  Arrangements by Bednarsky Funeral Home, Inc.
