Devon was born in Morden on May 2, 1994.  He spent all his life on the Kochka family farm in the valley south of Darlingford. He attended Manitou schools and graduated last year June 2012. Devon worked at 3M in Morden and was excited by his new job with the Dobson's Subcan.  He was excited to be working with the pipeline and learning new equipment to operate.  Devon had a quick wit and was constantly looking for the humour in life.  You always knew when Devon was around.  He always had that sparkle of mischief in his eye.  He was close to his family and always was ready for going out with friends.  Devon enjoyed dirt biking, video games, hanging with friends and driving his car.  There wasn't a day you didn't see him driving around town with a carload of friends.

Funeral service was held Friday June 14, 2013 at the Access Center in Morden.  Interment took place at Hillside Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Devon’s memory to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada 600-60 St. Clair Avenue East Toronto, ON M4T 1N5.
