Obituary Condolences

Robert (Bob) W. FENN Bob Fenn, 64 of Redmond, Washington passed away peacefully at Evergreen Hospice on Saturday, April 11, 2009. Bob was born in Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York on February 24, 1945, the only child of Harold and Kathleen (Spangler) Fenn. Bob grew up in Warner Robbins, Georgia but settled here in Washington following his tour of duty in the Navy. He loved the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and quickly embraced the outdoor activities the area offered. Boating and fishing were his first loves, and then came hiking, biking, and golf. He loved to get together with friends to bowl and to play poker. Bob was employed as a police officer in Bellevue from 1970 to 1980. He earned a bachelor's in community services in 1974 and a master's in public administration in 1981 from Seattle University. He then served at Seattle University from 1981 until 2007, holding positions as Director of Safety and Security, and more recently as Director of Facilities Management. In 2008 he joined the team at Holland America in Seattle. Bob was a gentle, kind man who would do anything for anyone; he was devoted to his wife Liz and took care of her in the truest sense of the word. He was a friend to many, a wonderful brother-in-law, and a trusted colleague. He will be greatly missed by all. Besides his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his eldest daughter, Erin. He is survived by Liz his wife of 22 years, youngest daughter Tamara, and his dog Penny. Bob also leaves behind Liz's mother, brothers and sisters and numerous nieces and nephews. The family thanks Overlake Hospital in Bellevue and Evergreen Hospice in Kirkland for the excellent care that Bob received during his final days and hours. A memorial Mass will be held on Friday, April 17, 2009 at St. Ignatius Chapel at Seattle University followed by a celebration of Bob's life.
