Robert Jeffrey Felten

Robb Felten, 40, of Rochester, MN passed away unexpectedly on Monday May 31, 2021 at his residence.

Robb was born February 16, 1981 in Rochester, MN to Jeff and Debi (Jerabek) Felten. He graduated from Lourdes High School in 1999. He played hockey and golf and helped his Lourdes golf team win State his Junior and Senior year. He attended Arizona State University and graduated with honors in 2005 with a bachelors in Business Administration and Accounting. Robb was working on his masters at Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies at his time of death.

Robb loved to fish, golf, and ride his bike. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, but his passion was helping those in need – often putting their needs before his own. He was willing to help in any way that he could, whether it be serving as a mentor, offering advice, or just providing a shoulder to lean on. He always made sure that others got what they needed. Despite all that he did, he remained humble.

Robb is survived by his father; mother; sister, Sara and her fiancée, Jess all of Rochester; grandmother, Mary of Florida; the love of his life, Nikki; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

So sorry for your loss. Sending thoughts and prayers.  There’s been a lot of heartache this year with losing some great young people/friends.  Hold tight and lean on your loved ones through this difficult time. 

No words can take your pain away, but prayers can help.  Rob went to Lourdes with my son BJ and they became good friends.  We all feel cheated by his death, just know Rob was loved by so many and will be missed deeply. Prayers, Frani Dunagan

Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Robb was one of a kind. Full of love and graciousness. He will be missed. 


David and Lorra Carrow 

Jeff and family, sending you positive thoughts and prayers during this difficult transition. 


Although I didn’t know Robbie, he sounds like a loving soul. May he have a gentle and loving new journey watching over all his loved ones. 

Jeff and Debi,


We are so very saddened by the news of Robb's death.  Your love for him is never ending and no doubt at all, his passing to eternal life will leave a huge hole in your family.  We have fun happy memories of Robb, Chad and Matt Schulte in the 5th and 6th Avenue neighborhood as they played sports and ran out and about from house to house.  Chad especially liked the Felten house probably due to the magazine subscriptions that the boys LOVED!  Robb was a talented hockey player, so feisty and energetic.  Our wish is for you to cling to those good years and memories as those are the true character of your son Robb.  He will be missed by those who loved and befriended him.  God Bless you. 


Linda and Craig Allen and family 

Our deepest sympathies for you.  Keeping you in our prayers. 
Ann and Steve Felton

I wanted to call you guy's. I didn't know the appropriate time to reach out to you. He was of course a very good friend of me. My family and yours spent a lot of hockey weekends together. Your family was honestly the best family that my mom and dad enjoyed the most. I'm devastated. I had no idea things were like this at this time. I wish I could hug him and love him like you did. 

Jeff, Debi and Sara


 


Our heartfelt condolences go out to you and your entire family. May Robbs memory bring you peace during this difficult time. 


Linda and John Brand

Jeff & Debi

Debi and Jeff,


We are very sorry for the loss of your son.  Wish we could be there to give you both a hug.  We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.


 


Linda & Dick Miller

We are so saddened to hear of your sons passing.  Our deepest condolences to both of you!

My condolences and prayers go out to Robb's family and friends. He touched so many. We shared the same name and love of sports and politics engaging in many debates over the past 7 years of knowing each other. I lost my grandmother in December, my wife in March and now Robb.. all too soon. I sometimes wonder why I am fortunate enough to still be alive with the choices I make and people like them are taken to soon. We may never know why but I know he is no longer in pain and sitting next to the Angel's watching over us all. Again my deepest condolences and prayers. 

Jeff and Debi-


After the loss of our daughter I saw this anonymous quote “Goodbyes hurt when the story is not finished and the book has been closed forever”. 


Reading some of the other condolences makes me believe that Rob was writing a terrific and meaningful story with his life.


God Bless and best wishes coping with your loss


 


Bruce Marsh

Sometimes you don't take the time to think how much someone means to you until they are gone.  Robb and I spent a lot of time together over the past four years, and I can't tell you how many people have reached out to me and told me, "sorry for your loss."  Yeah, we were close.  I miss him, and I just want the family to know he meant a lot to me.  Energetic, high energy, and infectious to be around - the last 19 months saw him flourish in his life - they had to have been his best years.  I am so fortunate to be able to be there on Memorial Day to begin the process of grief.  I wish the Felten family peace and love during this time.

Sara,


I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Robb.  I know how close the two of you were and that you were his biggest cheerleader.  I hope your memories will comfort you and help mend your heart during this difficult time.  Thinking of you and wishing you peace and comfort.  My deepest sympathies.


Leigh

Jeff and Debi,


I am so sorry for your loss.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jeff and Debi,


I am so sorry for your loss.  I am thinking about you and you are both in my prayers.

So very sorry to hear of Robb’s passing. Sending thoughts and prayers your way at this very difficult time.  May you find strength and comfort with your family and friends as they surround you with love!!


 

Jeff, Deb & Sara,


I am so sorry to hear of Robbie’s passing.  He was way too young.  Please know that we love you and are praying for you.  May God comfort you and be holding him close in Heaven.


Love you,


Eric, Angie, Evan, Alexis, Lauren & Andrew

Jeff, Debi & Sara Felten, I wanted to offer my deepest condolences on the passing of Rob.  I've known Rob pretty much my entire life and just the past couple of days i have been recounting stories/memories from growing up w/ Rob and it has brought countless smiles/laughs/tears and than more and more stories popping up.   So growing up on the avenue next to Rob there were a lot of kids that were in our age group or a little bit older and literally every day we would  go explore the area and have the time of life w/ the woods/the river/biking on the bike bath/the play ground/baseball park.  Rob was the closest to me in age and always let me straggle around with them.   We all enjoyed every type of sports and even though I was the youngest, a little chubby, they always let me play with them & that meant the world to me.   Through grade school Rob and his friends were a year ahead of me, they were always looking out for me, gave me a hard time every now and then but, I knew they had my back.  As we grew older and went into high school, Rob in the hockey team knew I had a passion for the game  and the got me to come with them to become there team manager &  i can't thank them enough.  As a team we went everywhere together. whether it was the other teams in town games, play pool at someone's house, we were doing it as a team.   Classic times in the locker room and some of the characters would get Rob going he was just hilarious and as the years pass that what you remember when looking back.    I was so fortunate to have Rob as  friend  & was able to experience first hand how big of a heart he had through all the things he did for me.  As hard as this is for us all, this is an opportunity for me to help others in Robs memory because I believe he would want that .  I'll never forget you or the times we had & I love you, bud!

Our hearts go out to Robb's family and all who knew him. The world has lost a kind soul who had so much to give.
