In Honor Of George W. Koch April 10, 2014
Sam Farr, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life of my friend George W. Koch who passed away on January 26, at the age of 87. George William Koch was born on April 8, 1926, in Cincinnati. After serving in the Navy during World War II, he received a bachelor’s degree in business in 1948, a bachelor of laws degree in 1950 and a juris doctor degree in 1950, all from the University of Cincinnati. After working as an assistant city attorney in Cincinnati, George became director of the Ohio Council of Retail Merchants before joining Sears and then the Grocery Manufacturers of America. George led the Grocery Manufacturers of America, GMA, trade association from 1966 to 1990. He was an inspiring leader who led the GMA to become one of the most influential and effective trade associations in America. Last year, George W. Koch received the first-ever Grocery Manufactures Association’s Leadership in Public Policy and will name the award in his honor going forward. As consumers, we all benefit from George’s leadership in promoting good practices at stores and grocery chains across America. Among his countless achievements, George is responsible for leading the initiative at GMA to introduce the Universal Product Code in 1974, and the development of tamper-resistant packaging in the wake of the Tylenol poisonings of 1982. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Helen Lawton Koch; his six children, Jorie Koch Kenny, Daniel, Patrick, Robert, Monte, and Lucy Lawton Koch; and 14 grandchildren. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life of my friend George W. Koch and to wish his family peace and solace during this difficult time."
