Bob was born on December 23, 1941 in Milwaukee the son of Eugene and Mary (Frontczak) Kwiatkowski. He grew up in Milwaukee and was united in marriage to Carol Heinrich on October 16, 1965. Bob and Carol would go on to enjoy 55 years of marriage together until her passing in 2019. The couple had two sons, Kurt and Kevan. Bob and Carol spent the first few years of their marriage living in Greenfield before moving out to Eagle. Bob worked in manufacturing as an Engineering Manager, Materials Manager and Manufacturing Manager for a few different companies such as Allen Bradley, Eaton Corporation and most recently QuadTech, Inc. He was passionate about Lean Manufacturing and Process Improvement and greatly enjoyed mentoring and advising his co-workers in these areas. He shared many conversations and experiences regarding his mentorships with his son, Kevan. He worked hard and took pride in providing for his family and giving his children opportunities. Bob served others in many areas of his life. He was the type of person to actively give of himself. He served his country as a member of 128th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron, Wisconsin Air National Guard. He was an involved member of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church for many years, and he served his local community as a member of the Eagle Town Board for more than 30 years. Bob was also Town Chairman for quite a few of his years on the board and he served his community with a sense of pride. Bob had many interests during his life, he and Carol raised and trained Weimaraners and German Shorthaired Pointers, they had horses, quail, pheasants, and many other pets during their life. He also had a special love for cars that he also shared with his boys, from classics to modern day Corvettes, they spent countless hours in the garage tinkering. Recently, he greatly enjoyed his weekly breakfasts with friends. Above all else in Bob’s life was his love for his family. He was the epitome of a devoted and loving husband, caring for the love of his life, Carol as she battled health issues the last few years of her life. He was a proud father and grandpa and was happiest spending time with those closest to him. He could often be found at a school function or sporting event supporting and cheering on his grandchildren. Bob will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
