January 12, 1927 ~ March 9, 2021 (age 94)


Loren Robert Kujawa, 94

Loren Robert Kujawa passed peacefully in his sleep at home on March 9, 2021.  A lifelong Libby resident, Loren was born January 12, 1927 to his parents Mary Rose Brouillard and Joseph Kujawa.

After graduating from Libby High School, Loren joined the Army Constabulary where he served with A Company 13th in Germany from 1945-1947.

On October 28, 1951, Loren married the love of his life, Gynell Denise Jacobs. Together they raised seven children. Before her death in 2005, Gynell and Loren celebrated fifty-five wonderful years together.

Loren was a local businessman, running Joe’s Texaco Service, initially with his mother until her retirement and then as sole owner until 1970. He then joined the Forest Service until his retirement in 1989.

In addition to his family, Loren had numerous interests, but none surpassed his passion for fishing, hunting and gardening. Few lakes, rivers or streams, mountains or valleys remained unexplored or unharvested. His garden was widely known and admired for its bounty.

Survivors include a daughter Dr. Mary Kujawa of Libby; sons Loren J. (Barbara) Kujawa of Chesapeake, VA; Charles Kujawa of Spokane, WA; Frank Kujawa of Libby; and Carl (Liza) Kujawa of Missoula; daughter-in-law DeeDee Kujawa of Libby; 15 grandchildren Katharine, Cameron, Amanda, Alyson, David, Matthew, Nathan, Christina, KaSandra, Jacob, Stephen, Shelby, Calvin, Chloe and Lauren; and several great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife Gynell, and sons John and Joseph “Joey”.
