Former Kenai City Manager Rick Koch is dead following a motorcycle accident near mile 39 of the Dalton Highway on Sunday.
Alaska State Troopers say Koch was riding in a group shortly before noon when his bike went off the road. He was first taken to Livengood where CPR was administered and a Guardian Flight from Fairbanks was dispatched. Flight medics pronounced him dead upon arrival.
Koch served as city manager in Kenai from 2006 to 2016, when he made a run for the state Legislature. He was 60 years old.
