Robert H. Feeney, of Littleton, closed his Irish eyes for the
last time as he entered eternal life on December 23rd. A native of
Wappingers Falls, NY, Bob was born to Frances Winifred (Flynn) and
John Patrick Feeney in 1930. He graduated from Siena College in
Loudonville, NY then worked as a reporter on the Poughkeepsie NY
Journal before moving on to Prentice-Hall Publishing Co. in New
York City. It was there that he met his late wife, Ann (Philippa).
In 1962 he co-founded the advertising firm Turner & Feeney,
Inc. In 1971 he accepted a position with the Johns-Manville Corp,
which took him and his family to Colorado. Bob's achievements at
Manville were numerous, culminating in his being named Communicator
of the Year by the Business/Professional Advertising Association in
1985. A new vocation called him in 1986 and he became the Secretary
of Communications for the Archdiocese of Denver, serving Archbishop
(now Cardinal) Francis Stafford. In that role, Bob interpreted the
church to the Catholic and non-Catholic population alike. The
pinnacle of his career was representing the archdiocese as press
spokesman and media specialist for World Youth Day in 1993, when
his holiness John Paul II made an inspirational pilgrimage to
Denver. In 1994 he married Elle Martling and they resided in
Louisville, CO. They later divorced. A Funeral Mass was held
December 30th at St. Mary Catholic Church, 6853 S. Prince St.,
Littleton, Colorado. Following the service, Bob was laid to rest
next to his wife, Ann P. Feeney, at Littleton Cemetery. Memorial

In Bob's own words, his family is his legacy, and he is survived by
his sister Ann Marie (Peter) Furnari, his brother Donald, his two
sons Michael (Sherry) and Matthew, his daughters Kathryn and
Roberta (Rob) Keosheyan, and his grandchildren Erin, Kyla, Dylan,
Philippa, Colleen, and Connor.
