Obituary of Robert John Kacik

Robert “Bob” John Kacik passed away on July 23, 2022, at age 92, at Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown, W.Va. He was born on March 8, 1930, in Smithfield, Pa. He graduated from St. Francis High School in 1949, attended WVU, then served in the U.S. Army and Paratroopers. He was a card shark and rarely lost his favorite game, pinochle. He shared the love of his other favorite game, golf, with his sons. Bowling, water skiing, winemaking and gardening were his other passions. One of his claims to fame was his appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. He was a participant in a Tommy Newsom look-alike contest. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Anna Mae, of Morgantown; sons: Richard of Hendersonville, N.C., Joe (Shannon) of Virginia Beach, Va., and Andrew (Tanya) of Morgantown; daughter, Teresa Bohna (Tony) of Morgantown; sister, Arlene (Charles) Medvick of St. Louis, Mo., and four grandchildren: Sydney Kacik, Kennedy Kacik, Stephen Bohna and Mitchell Bohna. He and Anna Mae met while polka dancing at the Victory Inn near Uniontown, Pa. He retired from Morgantown Machine & Hydraulics after 32 years. He also repaired TVs on the side. A special thank you to Emily, all the nurses, aides and doctors who took care of him at Amedisys.
