Obituary of Christopher Koep

Christopher Brand Koep passed away Tuesday morning, August 14th after a battle with a sudden illness. Chris was born April 14th, 1953 in Newark, NJ, son of the late Sebastian L. and Margaret B. Koep.

A resident of Hunterdon County, Chris could often be found out and about in the community he loved. He was a communicant at Immaculate Conception Church in Clinton Twp. He earned his B.F.A. at Syracuse University and his M.F.A. at Pratt Institute. He later received grants to Yaddo, MacDowell, and Millay art colonies.

He taught Visual Arts at R.V.C.C. for over thirty years and was a prolific painter. He exhibited his work in many solo and faculty art shows as well as in gallery spaces throughout NJ. His exuberant energy touched the lives of his family, friends, students, co-workers, and members of the community.

Chris is survived by his brothers Greg and Tom and his sister Peggy, his sister-in-law Mary, nephews Lazarus and wife Lisa, Jonas and wife Stephanie, Darius, and Noah, niece Britta and husband Michael, grandnieces Lily, Adeline, and Georgia, and numerous cousins.

Chris was passionate about travel, art, gardening, and family. His kindness, generosity, big heart, and vibrant spirit will be missed by all who knew him.

Friends and relatives may gather on Sunday August 19, from 2:00pm until 5:00 pm and on Monday August 20th from 8:30 am until 9:30 am at the Martin Funeral Home, 1761 Route 31, Clinton NJ.
