Lance Michael Fellman

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Lance. Age 46 of Shoreview. He passed away Tuesday, March 26 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul of an apparent cardiac issue. Lance is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Tara L. (Haumschild) Fellman; sons, Spencer Michael and Cooper Richard Fellman; mother and step-father, Jan and Don Powell of Blaine; siblings, Amy (Erick) Rockstad of Oak Grove; Chad Fellman of Minneapolis; Anne (Chris) Reitan of Coon Rapids; Andrew Powell of Andover; David (Rachel) Powell of Willmar; and Steve (Lucille) Fellman Jr. of Edwards, Colo.. He was preceded in death by his father Steven M. Fellman.

Lance was a devout husband, father, and friend to everyone. His sense of humor was second to none in quality or breadth. His kindness never waned, whether coaching the boys' baseball and basketball teams or socializing with anyone near him. Lance's love of all things sports extended to and beyond the golf course, Gophers, Twins, Vikings, and even the fishing dock. He sang at church in his younger days, which he would often boast to his family. He would always jump at the chance to chaperone school events for the boys. His patience and courtesy led him to a wonderful career with Edina Realty near home in Shoreview. If it was traveling with Tara and the boys, or out with friends on the softball diamond, Lance just wanted to have fun.

Where Lance shined the most however, was at home. He loved his wife and sons above all else. He was the calming voice in times of flurry, and a light in the darkness when things got rough. He will be missed beyond measure.
