Felix married Becky on January 1, 1983, and their love only grew stronger with each passing year.
He had many hobbies and family traditions that he installed and passed along to his kids and grandkids. He purchased many boats overtime as well to get everyone together, to camp out, and cruise the lake. Also barbecued and celebrated every holiday, birthday, and weekend together with his family. He would find any reason to fire up one of his many grills. Felix loved attending his grandkids' sporting events as well.
Felix was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who enjoyed spending time with his family. He adored his children and held special bonds with all his grandkids, and great grandkids. They were his pride and joy. He was so proud of them all. His footsteps can never be filled nor the love he gave be forgotten. His memory will be kept alive.
