Mr. Koet was my best friend Drew’s father. How he managed 4 boys and 2 girls was really something. I would often get invited over for dinner and every time I would knock on the door or sing Drewew, Drewew, he would answer and ask me, well Wally, what do you know? I would have a perplex look on my face and reply, I don’t know Mr Koet. He would reply, thought so, come on in! When you ate dinner at the Koets, you could not drink your milk until you finished your dinner. I made sure that I didn’t let my parents know about this concept. There are many more stories that I could share but there was always lots of activity in the Koet home and everyone knew their wonderful family. Thank you for always making me feel that I was part of your family. Love and prayers to you all, love you! Wally.

Odd what you remember about individuals once you put your mind to it.

Leo or Mr. Koet as we respectfully called him was my Little League Baseball coach for a few years. Depending on where the games were I’d ride my bike over to his house jump in the car with Bruce or Brian and away we went with the car windows down just having fun in the summer.

Thanks for all those rides !!

So many fond memories of The Koet Family....we lived across the street on Melvin for 10 years in the 60's and early 70's..truly some happy times between us kids and our families...Mr. Koet was a kind individual and my father (deceased) considered him a friend. Life is something you don't really take too seriously growing up but it is so very precious. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. Sending blessings and abundant love to the whole family. It was nice to see that a family of 8 turned into an even larger extended family with Grands and Great Grands.....I miss my father everyday so I know how much a loved one passing can weigh on a person. Mr. Koet, if you see AL up there tell him a day doesn't go by that I wish I had, had more time with him! Big Love to the whole great big Koet family.
