Robert D. “Rob” Kuchta

August 10, 1977 – February 28, 2022

Age 44

Robert D. “Rob” Kuchta was welcomed into Heaven on February 28, 2022. He was a loving father, son, brother, and best friend to many; his life and legacy will never be forgotten.

A rambunctious, stubborn ball of energy, Rob came into this world on August 10, 1977, to parents Delno Kuchta and Carolyn Reynolds. He graduated from Roosevelt High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with a 4.0 as class clown and most adventurous spirit.

As soon as the doors shut on high school, Rob ventured out to Colorado at the age of 17, staying in Winter Park for two years while enjoying skiing, his favorite sport and activity. Coming back to the plains, he studied Horticulture and graduated at the top of his class at Southeast VoTech in Sioux Falls.

After moving to Omaha, Rob worked at Mulhall’s Nursery and Landscaping for two years before he decided to change careers. He found success in the tile business, eventually branching out on his own and starting his own business, RDK Tile. His artistic craftsmanship enhanced many local landmarks, including Joslyn Museum, Creighton University, Lakeside Hospital, Madonna House, and numerous homes listed on the Parade of Homes. Rob’s perfection of his craft was second to none and will endure for generations.

Rob’s children were his greatest joy. With the birth of his first child, this quiet kind-hearted man fell in love with fatherhood and all it entailed. Second only to his love for family was Rob’s love for animals, especially his beloved dogs, Roxi and Lexi.
On any weekend Rob could be found hosting a barbeque for family and friends, or watching the Cornhuskers or Jets on TV. A creative handyman, Rob took on fix-it jobs as a challenge, repairing literally anything that needed it. Underlying everything was Rob’s quiet faith paired with his innate gift as a good-natured jokester—he loved teasing everyone at every opportunity.

Rob was preceded in death by his grandparents: Norbert and Esther Kuchta, Harry and Alma Chamberlain; uncle, Dean. He is survived by his beloved children: Chloe, Macey, Lyla, and Robert James “R.J.”; his mother, Carolyn Reynolds (Phil); father, Delno Robert Kuchta; sister, Shelly Hunt (Jason); half-sister and her husband, Brooke Keller (David); his niece and nephews: Tabitha, Jonah, and Asher Hunt.

VISITATION: Sunday, March 6th from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm. VISITATION resumes on Monday, March 7th at 9:30am at St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church, 16701 “S” St., with MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL at 10:30am. Entombment: Resurrection Mausoleum.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the estate of Robert D. Kuchta for the benefit of his children.  To view live broadcasts of the Vigil Service and Mass, please go to and click the “View Live Cast” button on the home page.
