How do you put in words the legend of a man? How do you describe the electrifying energy he brought to a room? Better yet, how do you count the lives he has touched? These words seem like they would flow freely like the laughter and love he provided.... But they don't.
Bob or "Shut up Bob" as so many called him, was not simple or quiet. If there was a moment of silence Bob was there to fill it with mumbling jokes and uncontrollable laughter. He did not understand the meaning of a stranger; as everyone he came across became an instant friend. The jokes and laughter he would share at his friends’ expense were fun and lighthearted. All his friends and family will truly miss this legend of a man.
Bob was born in Seattle Washington to Authur and Ann Feller. Bob was the third child out of four.
He married his first wife and had a son Jason that he loved so very much. That marriage was not meant to be and met his second wife also that marriage was not meant to be. He met his third wife and as they always say third time is a charm. Bob and Amanda were together for 24 years until his passing. She came into his life with three small children that he took and raised them as his own. Sean, Jessica, and Shelby were his kids, and nobody could tell him different. They had many adventures and mountains to climb and made a wonderful life together. Bob worked as an Electrician for 46 years and loved his work most of the time. He started his own business later in life and succeeded in making a name for himself. On the weekends Bob loved to camp and fish and be with his family and friends he especially loved it up at Fall Creek where he would enjoy weekends Just getting away from stress and turmoil from the work week. The last few years of his life was not the easiest he had big mountains to climb with his health but was determined to get better. He worked so hard and was on the road to healing when he was hit by this awful Covid, and his body was just too weak to fight it off.
Bob is survived by his wife Amanda Feller, his son Jason Feller, Son Sean Hinkle, Daughter Jessica Hinkle, Daughter Shelby Hinkle, Grandchildren Forrest, Sophia, Terra, and Morrigan, Sister Sue Clark, Brother Steve Feller and many Nieces and Nephews, and many, many truly great Friends.
He was proceeded in death, by his parents Ann and Authur Feller and sister Loann Burke.

A thousand words won't bring you back, I know because I’ve tried. Neither will a thousand tears, I know because I've cried. I hate not knowing for sure what happens when you die. But I really love to believe there is a heaven past the sky. Goodbye for now my dearest friend, my husband, and my love. You will be forever in my heart my mind and my soul.
Your loving wife
