Rudolph William Kozar, 90, of Muncie, passed away at home on November 3, 2017.

He was born March 23, 1927 in Gary, Indiana.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Rosemary Kovachick, after 58 years of marriage.

He and Rosemary were blessed with two sons; Matthew  (wife Kathleen) Kozar of Muncie and Rudolph (Jeannine) Kozar of Seattle, Washington.  He is also survived by three grandchildren:  Michael Kozar of Seattle, Megan Mullins of Zionsville, and Elizabeth Kozar of Austin, TX, one great-grandson, James, and his sister, Dorothy Gast of Valparaiso, IN.

Rudy served in the Army stationed in Germany during the occupation.  After discharge from the Army, he worked in Venezuela and then returned to Gary where he lived until 2009 when he moved to Muncie.  He worked for Standard Oil, Purex, and Mead Electric.  He was a member of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Gary.

Rudy was a kind soul, a friend to many, always willing to lend a hand and make a joke.  His family will treasure all the stories he loved to tell.  He would fix anything, and his basement workbench was the favorite place to play for his grandchildren.  He loved the Cubs, the Bears, and the shore of Lake Michigan. He will be missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be directed to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN  38101-9908.

The Meeks Mortuary and Crematory, Washington Street Chapel is in charge of arrangements and online condolences may be sent to the family at www.meeksmortuary.com.

 

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there.  I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush 

Of quiet birds in circled flight

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there.  I did not die.
