Written by Muleskinner Staff

Wayne Gene Kubik, 75, of Holden, Missouri, died Nov. 21 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.
Wayne was born in Wahoo, Nebraska, June 15, 1941, to Edward Joseph Kubik and Blanche (Brezina) Kubik. He worked for the Union Pacific Railroad as a Design Engineer, and after retirement he spent his time farming. Wayne served in the Nebraska Army National Guard and after moving to Holden in 2008, he joined the American Legion Post 90 in Holden, Missouri. Wayne attended the St. Patrick Catholic Church and was an active member of the Knights of Columbus. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and his dogs had a special place in his heart. Wayne loved spending time with his grandchildren and had a generous spirit in all kinds of ways. He brought a smile to the faces of his grandchildren every time they saw him. The grand kids remember him best for him tickling them until they were blue in the face. One of the things he would always say to the kids is,”Grab a toe and away we go”. He was definitely loved and will be missed by all.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the American Heart Association.
