Bobby was born January 11, 1938 in Stephen, MN to Bert & Martha Kuznia; he was one of twelve children.  Trying times of farm life held this family together like no other.  His family was a very close-knit family, 100% Polish and loving in every way.  Bobby attended Agricultural school for his last 2 years of high school, which was a live-on-campus setting away from home.  Bobby then moved to St. Paul, MN and worked for American Can Company.  Soon after American Can, Bobby worked as a short order cook for the railroad.  Bobby then returned to Argyle, MN at the age of 21 to be with the love of his life, Marjory Zippa, who became his wife on November 14, 1959.  Bobby took his new wife to St. Paul and lived there until they returned to Argyle where he worked at Valley Coverall as a driver.  They had four children together: Brian, Lynn, Jason, & Shelley.  They moved to Thief River Falls in 1965 for Bobby to work with the UPS Company; he remained with the company for 34 years until his retirement in 1998.  The family maintained residence in Thief River Falls allowing for the building of many relationships in the area, which are maintained to this day.  In 1998, soon after his retirement, they moved to Casper, WY to be with their children that had moved to the area.  He resided there with his wife and children until his death on May 14, 2012. Bobby’s interests included spending time with his family, playing pool, playing poker (or going to “work” to play poker as he would say), and traveling. He was a very proud, extremely loving father and grandfather, and truly a wonderful man in every way always willing to help in each and every way he could.  Bobby was loved wherever he went and left a wake of saddened souls.  He is survived by eight of his siblings, four children, five grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and his loving wife, Marge.
