Robert Jerome Tycz was born Saturday, December 18, 1937 at Tyndall to Charles, Sr., and Anna (Novotny) Tycz. He graduated from Tyndall High School in 1956 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy. After completing his military service in 1958, he returned to the area and began farming. Bob was united in marriage to Hilda Winckler on May 16, 1959 at St. Leo Catholic Church in Tyndall. They farmed until 1965, when they moved in to Tyndall and Bob began working for the City of Tyndall and later as a dispatcher for the Bon Homme County Sheriff’s office. He also worked as a realtor and auctioneer. From 1986 to 1996, he owned and operated Sokota Battery, Inc. in Tyndall. He was a crop insurance adjuster for the Hartford and a reviewer for Farmer’s Mutual Hail Insurance Company. Bob was a member of the Tyndall Volunteer Fire Department for 21 years and also a member of the Tyndall Rotary. Bob enjoyed making jewelry and woodworking, and made many handcrafted dulcimers. He was also an avid hunter and fisherman. Bob passed away on Tuesday, December 22, 2009 at St. Michael’s Hospital in Tyndall, having attained the age of 72 years and 4 days.
Bob’s memory will be cherished by his wife, Hilda Tycz, and son, Eric Tycz, both of Tyndall. He is also survived by two sisters: Mildred Humpal and Dorothy (Fred) Frank, both of Tyndall; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by a brother, Charles Tycz, Jr.

I truly wish that the miles between us would not have prevented me from being there for your loss. Our family's thoughts and prayers are with you. Eric, you are the brother that I never had and I have always cherished the time I spent at your home throughout the years. My fondest Tyndall memories have been throughout the many years with you, Aunt Hilda, and Uncle Robert. After hearing of Robert's passing just before Christmas, it brought back many memories of the post-Midnight Mass gatherings with great food and many games of "Uno". I really wish I could have been there for you. -- Tom

Hilda and Eric, Giulianna, Aryanna, Bryan, and I are sad to hear about Robert. We are sorry that we were unable to return to Tyndall for the services. Our prayers are with you. Robert was a good uncle throughout the years and will be missed. I recall the many visits to your house (especially growing up). Playing cards and Christmas Eve activities brought many families together.
