Christopher KuechmannChristopher Kuechmann is a retired Library professional with approximately 25 years of experience. He retired from the Val Verde County Library in Del Rio, Texas two years ago. "I like to travel and have lived in Colombia, South America for nearly 14 months. I have excellent fluency in Spanish as a second language."

He recently had Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery in 2015; he was shortly after diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and spinal stenosis that same year. His physician recommended it would be best for him to receive physical therapy at VVRMC. After several treatments, he says his back is much better and has found his balance and strength.

Mr. Kuechmann's wife Gloria Kuechmann sadly passed away last year and received excellent care from our Hospice program. He is very appreciative. "I will forever be grateful and thankful for all the service, support and compassion my family and I received. All the staff will forever be in my heart and prayers."

In the future he plans to get in contact with VVRMC and create a support group to help any patient diagnosed with Parkinson's and spinal stenosis.
