Malcolm D. Koehn

February 25, 1937 — December 24, 2017

Malcolm Donald Koehn, age 80, passed away on Sunday, December 24, 2017 while surrounded by his family. He was born on February 25, 1937 in Milwaukee to the late Edward and Dorinda (Bodway) Koehn. At a young age Malcolm’s family moved to Menasha where he attended St. Mary Catholic Elementary School, then St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary for four years. He went on to attend St. Norbert College while in the ROTC program. Malcolm proudly served his country in the US Army and was the Honor Graduate of his company at Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri. He served in Okinawa during the Korean conflict where he was a communications operator. Upon being honorably discharged, Malcolm returned home and began his career at Wisconsin Tissue (SCA) where he worked until his retirement.

Malcolm married Bette Bauer on May 8, 1965 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He absolutely adored his wife of 52 years. Malcolm remained a long-time, loyal, active member at Sacred Heart right up until his passing. He also enjoyed hunting, golfing and spending time with his grandchildren.

Malcolm is survived by his wife, Bette Koehn; son: Michael (Crystal) Koehn and his son, Nicholas; daughter: Michelle (J.J.) Douglas and her children, Ben and Ryan VanZeeland; step-grandchildren: Mackenzie and Jordan Douglas.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Eugene Koehn.
