Robert Kochis, Jr.

June 16, 1955 ~ June 25, 2022 (age 67)


Robert Kochis, Jr. left this world peacefully on June 25, 2022. He will be missed every day by his wife of 44 years, Melissa Kochis; his brother, Michael Kochis; his sister, Ann Kochis and her wife, Marilyn Kusek; his nieces, Hannah, Morgan, and Natalie Kochis; his father, Robert Kochis, Sr. and his wife Terry Kochis; as well as his cat, Dickens, and his dog, Lily.

Bob was known for his love of animals and all things nature, his sense of humor, and his curiosity about everything. He enjoyed playing guitar, composing songs and poems, creating jewelry, and collecting antiques. Bob helped a lot of people smile more through his dental laboratory, Kochis Dental Lab. 

“Loved ones and animals, you and me

 Just you wait and see 

We’ll meet on this journey

The journey to eternity.”
