Robert “Bob” Sobczak, age 80, of Acorn, Arkansas died Monday, April 1, 2019. He was born on Sunday, March 19, 1939 to Francis and Helen Dietz Sobczak in DuBois, Pennsylvania.
Bob graduated from Parsons High School in Parsons, West Virginia in 1957 and immediately joined the Air Force. On November 21, 1970, he married Linda Kuehne. They raised one daughter, Kelly. He retired after twenty years of service, spending time at various military bases around the world, including Vietnam. In 1977, after retiring from the Air Force, he worked at the Veterans Administration Austin Automation Center in Austin, Texas for eighteen years. Combining his military time and civil service time he retired in 1996 with thirty-eight years of service. In January of 2001, he and Linda moved to Mena, Arkansas.
Bob enjoyed fishing, hunting and being out in the woods. He really enjoyed turkey hunting in the Ouachita National Forest. If a friend, neighbor or his church family needed anything, he was ready to help in any way that he could. He loved his small church family at the Christ Episcopal Church, and they loved him. Underneath, he had a kind, generous, loving heart and loved his family so very much. He will be missed more than words can say.
