Michael Koch †
We are sad to inform you that Michael Koch has passed away on Feb. 17th 2020 at the age of nearly 85 years after a short and serious illness.
Michael joined the GEA in 1988 and has been a very active member for many years and also member of the committee in 2003(?).
Apart from his activities in the GEA he organised the German speaking group "Deutsch mit Freunden - Konversation und Events für Alle" and was also active in the "Amicale Francophone de Munich". He sometimes even hosted talking tables in his own flat, at that time in Tengstraße.
Having lived himself for some time abroad, he was happy to help newcomers to Munich feel comfortable here.
Unfortunately we didn't see him in the GEA any more for several years.
The funeral will take place on Wednesday, 26th February 2020 at 10am at Nordfriedhof, meeting in front of the cemetery chapel.
Nordfriedhof (North Cemetery), Ungererstraße 130, 80805 Munich (U6 to Nordfriedhof + 7 mins walk or parking options on Ungererstraße, Car Park Alte Heide, Ungererstraße 159)
