continued Cross said that he was always thinking about ways to help his community.
“He is somebody we will miss and we will all love,” she said. “I really don’t know if anyone could have had a better friend.”
Bruce Klink said that he met Couchey when he first came to town about 12 years ago.
“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.”
