April 29, 1947 - October 12, 2020
It is with great sadness and utter disbelief that the family of Robert A. Kumin of Lenexa, KS announce the passing of Robert A. Kumin on October 12th, 2020. Bob was born on April 29, 1947 to the late Saul and Evelyn Kumin of Cleveland, Ohio. He graduated from Ohio State University in March, 1969 with a degree in Labor Economics. Bob continued his education at Ohio State University earing a Juris Doctor, cum laude, in June, 1972. He married the love of his life Carole Conant in May, 1969 in Cleveland, Ohio and have been happily married for 51 years. They were remarried in Las Vegas in May, 1994 by a fuller-figure Elvis. Hallmark Cards brought Bob to the Kansas City area where he joined their legal department in 1972. He remained on staff at Hallmark Cards for two years after which he opened his own law firm specializing in creditors rights, collections, and bankruptcy. He is a member of multiple professional affiliations including American Bankruptcy Institute, American Bar Association, Bankruptcy and Insolvency Subcommittee, Johnson County Bar Association, Kansas City Bankruptcy Bar Association, Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and Missouri Bankers Association. Bob was the only creditor’s rights attorney appointed to the Kansas Bankruptcy Bench Bar in 2006. Bob was an active member of Ohev Sholom Synagogue and served as president from 1986 to 1987. He always said Ohev Sholom Synagogue had the warmest, friendliest people and considered the members his extended family. He especially loved the kids and would entertain them with his Cookie Monster and Count Dracula impersonations. Bob was also a past president of his Homeowners Association and a volunteer at the JFS Food Pantry. His insatiable appetite for reading prompted him to become a volunteer reading coach for adults studying to get their GED. His hobbies were few in number but he was passionate about the ones he did enjoy such as reading, gardening when his back and knees permitted him to do so, visiting casinos, and working. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend Carole, two sons and daughters-in-law: Bradley and Tracy Kumin of Houston, TX and Jeffrey and Meg Kumin of Lenexa, KS as well as one grandson (Elijah) and five granddaughters (Tyler, Jonna, Aria, Sydney and Kylie) whom he will always cherish. Bob also leaves behind two brothers and sisters-in-law: Harvey and Nancy Kumin of Cleveland, Ohio and Dr. Gerald and June Kumin of Naples, Fl as well as many more loving friends and relatives who will miss him very much.

Private family services will be held at Mt. Carmel Cemetery.
