Obituary of Robert Atchison Kuhns
Robert (Bob) Atchison Kuhns passed away peacefully on April 8, 2023, two days after his 88th birthday. Bob was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was the loving husband of Valerie, twin brother to Jim (Linda), father to Rob (Esther) and Linda (Maurice), grandfather to Zachary and Brenna, stepdad to Helen (Rob) and Fiona (Nick) and step-grandfather to Liam and Olivia.
Bob was a gentleman. As a young man, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps and later his successful career in international business took him all over the world. He had his private pilot’s licence, enjoyed flying and had a love for sailboats. As a dual citizen Bob spent his life living in the U.S., Jamaica, and Canada. His stories were endless, and his sense of humour was contagious.
Bob was an intelligent man with a kind soul and a love for helping others. He spent countless hours volunteering with St. Johns Ambulance, Henley Rowing Medical Services, Wellspring Niagara and in early days with the Fox Chapel Volunteer Fire Department in Pittsburgh. When at home he was always accompanied by a four-legged friend, some of whom were rescues from the Lincoln County Humane Society.
Bob spent his final days surrounded by the amazing team at Hospice Niagara, who loved and adored his sweet nature and mischievous grin. The family greatly appreciates everyone there and all the support they gave to make Bob so comfortable.
Bob’s passing has left a huge void and his presence will be greatly missed by all.
Bob’s family will be honoring his life on Tuesday April 18th with a service at the George Darte Funeral Home at 11am, followed by an private interment at the Niagara Lakeshore Cemetery with immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lincoln County Humane Society and Hospice Niagara.
