I was at the service today but unfortunately didn't have a chance to speak with Jonathan. Bob was a wonderful man and I was happy to know him but I was a closer friend to your Mom Jane. She and I had many laughs together over the years and they were both a special couple. Jonathan I hope your Dad is finally at peace and with Jane, and that you will be a peace knowing you were a devoted and caring son to him. Linda Gambino

I attended Bullen Jr. High School in Kenosha, WI and had the pleasure of being one of Mr. Ferber's students. He was a great teacher, with a great sense of humor. I also had his lovey wife, Mrs. Felber as my English teacher. She was also a excellent educator and had a great understated sense of humor. They left an impression on me and after I came across Mr. Ferber's notice of passing away, I felt compelled to let his adult children know that I feel for their loss. May he rest in peace.

I love Mr. Felber. As a kid growing up, I looked up to him and felt he was always my friend. I went to Prairie Lane, Bullen and Tremper and I had him in my life. He was stern but very caring. He always had words of wisdom for me. He helped me through times of bullying and made sure I knew how to combat it. Not only did I see Mr. Felber at school but he also was a member of my church. I pray that Mr. Felber has found peace and is now free.
