Kobylecky, Arthur J. Korean Conflict Army Veteran. Beloved husband of over 50 years to Betty (nee Postany); devoted and loving father of Kurt (Angela) Kobylecky; adoring Grandpa of Kaden, Ella and Brecken; kind uncle and great-uncle; fond cousin and friend to many; preceded in death by his dear parents, five brothers and two sisters.

Selfless and kind, Art always thought of and put everyone else first in front of himself. He would run through a wall for others and always had a contagious smile that lit up a room. Arthur was a true family man. Proudly, he and Betty would attend Kurt's high school and college baseball and football games. They were eager to be at each and every event they could manage. During his last days, he always was asking about his grandkids and neighbors and was often concerned about my mom to make sure she "locked the doors". On the quiet side, his heart and actions always spoke volumes.

Art, known for savoring a "shot of the Good Doctor", truly enjoyed fishing, watching sports and visiting the casino. Most of all he adored his grandkids. A proud grandpa, he loved supporting his grandchildren's sports and activities. He, with Betty, would never turn down an opportunity to watch and visit their cherished grandkids.

Art is as solid as they come and will be missed by many. He will always hold a special place in his families' hearts. May he rest in peace reunited in heaven with his parents, siblings and many great friends who are awaiting his arrival with open arms.
His memory is a blessing. He will never be forgotten.
