Re: Holiday World loses beloved owner, Will Koch.

This is very sad news. My heart goes out to the Koch family and Holiday World family.

Will was a one in a million owner. Pat and Will were always walking around the park and you could talk to them at any time. When we got off our ride on Wildebeest, during Holiwood Nights, Will was there asking us how we liked the ride. There wasn't anyone like him.

RIP Will Koch

What the hell? Like others, I'm waking up to this, well been up for some time, but this is surreal...Definitely, my thoughts and prayers will be for the Koch family today...

Wow, very surreal and legitimately sad. Nothing I can say that doesn't echo what everyone else has put. A very somber reminder that life is fragile and to enjoy what you have.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

This was very well put and sums up my feels quite perfectly. Mr Koch, from all accounts, was a great person who will be remembered for giving the people all they wanted and more.

Oh man, this is just terrible.

Death is a terrible thing no matter who or what age you are, but for someone as nice and young as Will to pass away is just awful. Thoughts go out to all of his family and friends today.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Wow, just Wow..... I actually thought Will was a bit younger than that. Words can't really describe how much he'll be missed.
Thoughts and Prayers to the family and staff.
