Obituary of Noel Jeffrey Koch

Mr. Noel "Jack Diesel" Jeffrey Koch, 54, of Kernersville passed away on April 3, 2024 at his home in Kernersville. Born in Parryville, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Robert and Donna (Reiner) Koch and husband of Valerie Koch.


Noel loved sports, smoking meat and tanning poolside with his best friend, Dale, while listening to his heavy metal music. He was a die-hard fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State. He enjoyed spending time with his family and manicuring his lawn to perfection. Among other things, he was a really great cook with an affinity for meat that he would spruce up with his Bubba Sauce.


Noel is survived by his loving wife, Valerie Koch; his daughters, Daron Long and Gianna Koch; his mother, Donna Kemmerly; his sisters, Salinda Lee and Jessica Koch.


He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Koch; and his brother, Bobby Koch.


Per Noel's request, there will be no services held at this time. The family will hold a celebration of life service at a later date to be determined.
