The son of Jennie and Benjamin Kozlowki, Bob retired as a clerk for the Railroad Retirement Board of Chicago in 1982. His friends and family gathered at Heeney-Laughlin Funeral Directors and celebrated Mr. Kozlowki's life at St. Terrence Catholic Church in Alsip, IL.

Mr. Kozlowski always stayed in support of Leo High School and always gave the fullest measure of devotion to his country, family and friends.

God Bless You, Sir!
