Gregory ‘Greg’ Kochenower
Gregory Michael Kochenower, 63, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, at home with his wife and children.
He was born Feb. 28, 1959, in Kingfisher, to Lester and Jane Kochenower. He was the oldest brother to Dianna and Robert.
Greg attended Kingfisher High School, graduating in 1977.
He briefly attended Northern Oklahoma College before marrying the love of his life, Karen Causey, on Aug. 25, 1978.
Greg went on to work in the oilfield in Dover for Beard Oil Company. He continued to work in the oil and gas industry for 40 years before ending his career as a production foreman for Chesapeake Energy Corporation in 2018. Greg loved fishing and vacationing with his family in Colorado, but his most cherished time was spent with his wife, the joy of his life.
He made Christ Lord of his life in August 1978 and continued to be a faithful follower of Christ until the Lord called him home.
Those who knew Greg would describe him as a man of few words.
He had a servant’s heart, humbly serving and loving his Lord, family and friends so deeply. He made each one of us a better person. Greg was preceded in death by his father, Lester Kochenower, and grandparents Gene and Mildred Kochenower and Versa and Verona Leisher.
He leaves loving memories with his wife Karen of the home; daughter Staci Francis and husband Austin of Kingfisher; son Scott Kochenower and wife Whitney of Lawton; grand blessings Hannah and Mack Francis and Brett, Hadley and Connor Kochenower.
