Happy Birthday, Peter Lennon Koechley

My brother turns 25 today. Happy Birthday Peter.

Peter Koechley

My brother’s middle name is Lennon. He was born in 1980 on the day John Lennon was murdered.

At one point, my grandmother pulled my parents aside and verified that it was “L E N N O N”, not “L E N I N”. I always got a kick out of that.

It’s strange to me that a great person, Lennon, was taken from this world early, and at the same time my brother, another great person, was brought into this world.

Happy Birthday Peter. You’re the best brother I can Imagine.
