My sincere condolences to Christine Koch and her entire family on the passing of Mark. Just wanted to let you know that I always appreciated all the help I received from Mark and his partners over the years while out on the streets. Mark and his partners were always ready to respond and assist many officers on the street. Mark and his partners were an asset to MPD and the citizens of Milwaukee they served. Now another good officer has left this planet way too soon but not without leaving his smile, work ethics and friendship for all to remember him by. Christine may God bless the entire Koch family during this time of sorrow now and in the future. Christine, I know you are a tuff cookie, so be strong for your family and accept all the love and compassion that comes your way. May your heart mend as you and your immediate family go thru the process of healing, after Marks passing. Remember Mark is on a new journey and probably has been assigned to gods TAC unit already. As Mark leaves everyone he cared for and those that loved him. Just remember that all those family and friends that Mark knew that left before him were all waiting for him with their arms open to accept him to the heavens above. Be safe Christine as you are in my prayers and someday in the future you will be reunited with Mark so you can continue holding hands again forever. Christine you and Mark were co-workers that many will never forget because of your caring and compassion towards others. R.I.P Mark Koch G. Irizarry

I still can’t believe that you are not here. It feels as if this is a bad dream and we will wake up and see you. It hurts knowing that you will not be here. I know Chris is hurting but please know that we will take care of her. We love you and miss you Mark. Until we meet again ♥️
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have SOOOO many memories of you Mark, I can't possibly post them all. You were my big brother and I ALWAYS looked up to you and have always been so proud of you! We may not have always got together often, but when we did, we just picked up where we left off. Your infectious smile and that "Koch" laugh will keep me going when thinking of you. The stories you told!!! Give Mom, Dad, Kitty and Kimmie hugs for us. We will meet again - Love you Bro!!!!

It is so surreal the events of Monday took place. How can it be? Your presence will be missed at the house and at family events. Grateful we got some one on one type moments. You were a great example of commitment and dedication to work, to family. Your work will continue in a different way surrounded by those you are connected to, gone before you. Till we meet again Markie Mark, we love you!

Mark was an outstanding police officer who always gave 100% of effort on assignments. As a TEU commander I saw first hand how brave and capable He was. During dangerous tactical operations Big Boy was mostly assigned to the #1 position as the lead officer on the 5 person entry team. He performed flawlessly with courage and bravery. Rest in Peace friend. You've done your job.

My Darling Big Brother. You've left us way too soon. You've been a rock and a loving presence in my life since we were were 'cowboys and Indians' at the ripe old age of 2 and 4 yrs. I cannot believe I will never be able to see that smiling face or hear your booming laughter ever again. And I will forever miss that call that I will never get. You are forever in my heart. I will Love you forever. I know that you are in the Hands of God, and are in the warm embrace of Dad, Mom, Kitty Michael, Uncle Mike, Aunt Catherine, Uncle Joe and all the rest of our loving departed family. Please watch over Chris. And give me a special wink every now and then. Let your Light shine bright in Heaven as you did on earth. I Love You Big Brother. Peace.
