Irene, Ryan, and Casey - I remember the CYO years between Blessed Sacrament and St. Mark (soccer, basketball, and baseball). I appreciate the 1-2 years when Koby provided his wisdom and expertise to actually coach Tony’s last CYO soccer team (age 11-12) at St. Mark. I know our boys, Tony and Daniel, crossed paths at MacArthur also. I think our daughter, Stephanie, also met Klarissa along the way. Our thoughts and prayers are with and your family at this time and going forward.

Irene, Ryan, Kelly, Casey and Karisa,

We are sorry for your loss.

Koby was a great husband and father to your family and a tremendous friend to all of us.

Basketball brought us together, but the friendships and the good times made it special for everyone.

We love y'all.

Dearest Irene and family,
We are so sorry for your great loss. Koby will be missed by everyone he came in contact with. Franco and I will always remember what fun it was to go out with you two, the sense of humor Koby had and how he made us feel like we had been friends forever. We are so grateful to have known Koby and to have spent quality time with him. You and your family will continue to be in our prayers now and as you go through this difficult time.
We love you both,
Kim and Franco
