Mr. Kueck passed away Wednesday, November 20, 2019 in Tyler. He was born February 10, 1931 in Dale, Texas to Earl and Ruth Kueck.
Bobby was a member of the United Methodist Church. He proudly joined the U.S. Navy after graduating from high school. He loved sports activities of all kinds, but especially enjoyed horse racing, the Dallas Cowboys, fish fries and backyard cookouts at the lake with friends, followed by late-night card games.
