Bob Fenn - 1962 Eastern States Championships in Saratoga Springs.

I knew Bob as a competitor - mostly in east coast/Eastern Seaboard competitions with many U.S.Open, North American and National Indoor/outdoor championships. We had some great races - he bested me most of the time. I recall one of his first impressive Senior Men's wins at the 1962 Saratoga Eastern States Championships - after moving up from intermediate boys. He won all five finals, 220, 440, 880, 3/4 mile and 3 mile beating Arnold Urhlass (the 1961 Champion & Olympian).

I met Bob at the Olympic Ice Rink in West Allis. He was a fierce competitor. He was a favorite of my father, Warren and mom, Lee Kellermann. They truly enjoyed his company and humor. I hope Bob was met by his friend Warren in heaven, I am sure they had a good laugh together.

Godspeed Bob

I was so saddened to learn of the passing of Bobby Fenn. We grew up together in Flushing Queens NYC and we're best friends. Bob was an Usher in my wedding to Lily Uhler in 1968.
During our early years we trained together riding many miles along the Long Island Expressway service road, and skating in many arenas. We even went on cold winter nights to skate on the lake at Kissena Park when it was isolated.
I also fondly remember Bobs

I cannot express in words my thoughts and remembrances about Bobby. I knew him from New York back in the 60s already. He touched all of our lives in so many ways. Rest in peace, my friend! You will never be forgotten
