Felix was industrious and had a gift for painting automobiles.  He worked for Capital Chevrolet, before opening his own business Felix Paint and Fender Repair. A respected and hardworking man, he is also known for his compassion and gift of serving.  He adored his grandchildren, and could often be found giving one of them a ride in his golf cart, or pulling a trailer full of them throughout his land.  He was a member of San Francisco Javier Catholic Church for over 20 years, before calling Oasis Church in Round Rock, TX his home.  He will be remembered for his strength, integrity, quick wit, life lessons, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit.
