The combined families of Robert and Linda Kielbowicz are saddened to learn of and announce their tragic deaths on Friday, August 12, 2022 in Browning, Montana.

Robert (Rob) (53) was born October 3, 1969 in Poland. He is survived by his parents Mieczyslaw and Stanislawa Kielbowicz of Poland and his brother and sister-in-law Walter and Katherine Kielbowicz of Southington, Connecticut.

Rob was a lifelong Connecticut resident. He and his beloved wife Linda relocated to Fortson, Georgia in 2019.

Linda and Rob also leave behind many beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, and numerous friends in the motorcycle community.

They loved all animals, especially their cats and dogs; they were staunch advocates for animal shelters and rescue foundations throughout the country.

Linda and Rob were avid Harley Davidson motorcyclists. They have traveled thousands of miles on their HD Road Glide; essentially visiting every state in the continental United States. They have ridden through the majority of our beautiful national parks and have experienced amazing landscapes, developed lasting friendships, and found simultaneous joy in each of these adventures.

Linda and Rob died tragically on this fateful summer day leaving the renowned Sturgis Bike Rally. Family and friends should be comforted that they died together on this, their final motorcycle adventure.
