In memory of
John Edward Koury
On Saturday, June 16, John Edward Koury - husband, father, son and brother - passed away unexpectedly at the age of 55. He will lovingly be remembered by his wife of 32 years, Cheryl A. (Kutchinsky) and his children, John E. Koury Jr., Danielle Elliott (Jason), and Michael Koury; his parents, John and Rose Koury, Shenandoah; a sister, Kathryn Buchanan, Shenandoah; a brother, the Rev. James J. Koury; nieces, Brittany and Erin Buchanan; a grandson, Owin Elliott. After graduating from Shenandoah Valley High School, John went on to the University of Pennsylvania. He worked for Whiting-Turner Construction Co. and has worked for Quandel Construction Group Inc. since 1989 and, most recently, held the position of president and COO. John was highly active at Holy Name of Jesus Church, serving as Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist and religious education instructor. He was a member of Knights of Columbus Council 14081, a 4th Degree Member of Assembly 3167, Harrisburg and a TMIY (That Man is You) member. His faith was an integral part of his life, as anyone who knew him could attest to. He lived his faith and often said, "It's a beautiful day to serve the Lord by serving others." John's sudden passing leaves a large hole for his family, coworkers and friends. They will gather to remember him from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at Neill Funeral Home, 3501 Derry St., Harrisburg.
