“I go to the DNC (Do Nothin Club), and he was the elder statesmen there,” Klink said. “He was a good friend and he had a continuous sense of humor. He always livened the proceedings up.”

Klink also described Couchey as church and community-minded, willing to help out wherever he could.

“He was someone you could always count on,” Klink said. “He never thought about the monetary returns when he would do a project for someone, which I always found fascinating.”
