Robert Michael Kutz, passed away on November 13, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. “Bob,” “Fat Bob,” or “Bula Bob,” as he was also known worldwide, was born in Eugene, Oregon on December 21, 1950 to Albert Kutz and Betty Jean Harp. He graduated from North Eugene High School in Eugene, Oregon. Bob was a U.S. Army veteran. He would later go on to work for the U.S. Postal Service as a letter carrier, and later obtained his Associates Degree in computer science.
Bob’s love for motorcycles and dirt bikes highlighted his life from his teens through his final days. He was part of the Honda Racing Team in the 70s. He would later enjoy touring the mainland with friends every summer on his Harley Davidson.
Bob had a great sense of humor and loved telling jokes and playing pranks. He loved animals and kids. And all animals and kids loved Uncle Bob! For the past twenty years, Fiji was a second home for Bob.
Bob is survived by his wife, Reinette, and two sons, Trevor Walter and Devin (Summers) Walter. He is also survived by three grandchildren, Adalyn Mahealani Walter, Matthias Kainoa Walter and Paisley Pistol Annie Walter. He is also survived by his sister, Susan Abbott.
