Bobby Lewis Kinzie, life long Cushing resident, passed away early Monday morning, November 6, 2006 in Oklahoma City at the age of 74 years.
The son of the late William Kinzie and Mary Holderread Kinzie, Bobby was born on October 19, 1932 in Cushing and was reared and educated in this area, graduating from Ripley High School.
He met Jo Ann Rawlings on August 9, 1953 and on September 11, 1953 was engaged to her; they were united in marriage on December 8, 1955 in the Big Creek Church of the Brethren. To this union, two children, David and Kristye were born.
Bobby served in the Army from December 10, 1954 to December 3, 1955 in the Seventh Army 868th Field Artillery Battalion, Co. C in Germany. He ran the surveying instruments and called the co-ordinates for the firing of two of the Cannons which were in Co. C. He received a beautiful ring when he was honored as “Soldier of the Month”. The selection was made from all of the companies on the post, so it was very much an honor to be chosen. Among his papers are those recommending Waiver of Time and promotions with praise for both his attitude and his character. He also did the co-ordinate and set up the firing stakes for the Targets of the First Honest John Rocket in Europe.
Bobby worked for Griffin Oil Well Cementing; Webb Construction and for MWK Machine Shop where he built the second truck for Oil Well Fracturing, who he later went to work for up until his illness.
He was a member of the Big Creek Church of the Brethren; a former member of the Cushing Lions Club; he enjoyed golf, fishing, helping coach youth baseball and enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Survivors include his wife of over 50 years, Jo Ann of the home; one son, David Michael Kinzie of Hominy; one daughter, Kristye Cooper and her husband Ricky of Perkins; one sister, Wanda Buckles and her husband Guy of Cushing; two sisters-in-law, Janice Sudheimer of Wellston, Ruth Kinzie of Cushing and Mabel Kinzie; six grandchildren, Alysa Carder and her husband Dustin, Lashley Kinzie, Caleb Kinzie, Joe Bob Cooper and his wife Ladawna, Brandye Cooper and Shane Cooper; four great-grandchildren, Ryal Cooper, Tristyn Cooper, Lilly Cooper and Jacob Carder; several nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, William and Lester Kinzie; three infant brothers and one sister-in-law, Linda Sudheimer Bailey.
Memorial services will be held Saturday, November 11, 2006 at 2:00 P.M. in the Big Creek Church of the Brethren with Pastor John Holderread officiating.
