Robert Edward Kolb was a gift to Leroy Kolb and Edna Huey on Friday, December 2, 1949 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. He was called into God’s Kingdom on Thursday, March 29, 2021 by the hands of his late wife, Rhonda Kolb and grandson, Shane Fiddlke from Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Robert was a mild-mannered man who enjoyed gardening, wood working, playing guitar, and was always up for a good prank or joke on someone. He was a patient and understanding dad, but could be strong or stern when the moment called for it. He was stubborn, and never afraid to speak what was on his mind. He would always stand for what he believed in, and was never afraid of a fight. He spent 30 years with the Arkansas Department of Transportation and was reported to be "One hell of a good paint and body man".
Robert will be forever cherished and remembered by his present wife of five years, Judy Kolb; seven children, twelve grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren, other family members, and friends.
