Coach Kosins helped coach my football team my senior year at Bellbrook. He brought an intensity that was unmatched to practice everyday. He coached with fire and enthusiasm. If you didn't do your job, he would be in your face letting you know that wasn't okay. Despite only coaching me for 3 months my senior year, he made an impression on my life that has not been forgot. My heart hurts for your loss and this worlds loss of a good man.

Bob was one of the good guys who always was there when needed. As a lifelong friend, fellow teacher, and leader of young athletes, Bob always made a difference. Please accept my deepest sympathies, as our world will never be the same.

To the Kosins families,
So sorry to hear about Bob. I have many fond memories of all the great times coaching football together (I don’t know who had a louder voice him or me) and having the kids as students and athletes. He will be sorely missed and I will always remember him.
Take care and god bless

I remember first seeing Bob on my first sales run back in 2006. Bob was very proud of his business but more proud of his sons working with him. Every time I went to see him he took the time out to talk to me. He always complimented his sons to me. He was one of the most sincere , caring and friendly person I have ever met. Bob has done his job well done. He will be missed.

I think I've known Bob as long as Pam has. I remember the first time I saw him we had shish kabob! Which was fancy. Out of my normal wheelhouse. He took me home from babysitting. He always complimented my food when we had parties for Mom and Dad. He was always just part of our lives. Card games at their house in Huber when we were kids. Always had great snacks which is important when you're a kid. I'm so sad for Pam,Bill,Mike,Bobby,Angie, and their families. His memory will live on in their hearts! All my love , Tammy

Our hearts are broken to have to say goodbye to this great man!! The Kosins were like family to us!! The children were like our children. Bob was like a second Dad to Eric. We have shared wonderful times together raising our children. He has made such a difference in so many of our youth.
He was looked up to and so respected by all those who knew him.
He will be missed by all of us!
With our deepest of sympathy to the family.
Forever in our Hearts ♥️

He was the best football coach we had my senior year, the only year he coached any of my teams. You always knew where he was; all you had to do was wait and listen, and soon enough, you'd know. I wished he was our head coach, and I know I was not alone in that thought. I am truly sorry for your loss.

It was a privilege and an honor to be able to call this amazing man “uncle”. I will miss his laugh, stories and his friendship. Fly high, Uncle Bob and give my a Katie girl a hug. I love you. ❤️
