Al was wonderful to work with in the 80's when he headed the Trust Department at First Victoria National Bank and I was in charge of Human Resources. Al was knowledgeable, friendly, and always willing to help solve a problem. His consistent positive outlook was a blessing for all of us. Rest in peace, Al, knowing you made a big and positive contribution to your community and were an inspiration to many.

We were very sorry to hear that Al had passed away. He was a fine
Christian gentleman who always had a big smile on his face. I got
to know Al at the Lions Club and at the First Victoria National Bank.
We know that many people will miss Al. May God bless the entire
Koehn family during your time of loss.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Koehn's passing. Mrs. Koehn always brought us a turkey on Thanksgiving as thanks for our appliance service during the year. When Mrs. Koehn passed, Mr. Koehn said he wanted to continue and he did. The last year he could not do it he send us a check instead. Mr. and Mrs. Koehn were both very gracious and generous and they will be remembered as such. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

I worked with Mr. Koehn at First Victoria National Bank for many years. I moved to Victoria to work at the bank and he was head of our department.

Mr. Koehn was a story teller and had a great laugh. He was a father figure to me and a good man. Dolly used to make “Brown Bag Apple Pies” and send them with Mr. Koehn to those of us fortunate enough to work for him. They were certainly a team and lovely couple.

He will always be Mr. Koehn to me, that’s just a tribute to the amount of respect I have for him.

Rest In Peace Mr. Koehn, you will be missed.

I was a partner at Rosewood Funeral Chapels until I retired in May 2016. I had the pleasure of knowing both Dolly and Elvin they were such a sweet couple. Dolly would bring me a Chocolate Birthday Cake just about every year before I retired from Rosewood. She had pre arrangements on her and Elvin and every year she would call me to update the obituary information. I always enjoyed visiting with Dolly and Elvin. God certainly has two new angels in heaven. I definitely miss that birthday cake every year and seeing them both. May god bless the entire family.
