Felix was known for his talent as a local DJ and love of music, serving his community, his love for fishing and hunting with family and friends, his son and family and his big heart.

Felix grew up in West Phoenix, in the Maryvale Community.  He attended Catholic schools most of his life, Attending St. Catherine’s grade school in South Phoenix a couple of years then going to St. Vincent de Paul in Phoenix (Maryvale).  He played little league baseball at Holiday Park and Pop Warner Football in the West Valley growing up as a kid and was a really good baseball pitcher back in the day.  He attended high school at Brophy Prep in the late 70’s to mid senior year and finishing at Trevor Brown high school in 1979.  Felix went to Phoenix College a couple of years and would most be remembered for working at the Arizona Republic and Phoenix Gazette back in the day when he finished school.

From the 1980’s to the early 2000’s, Felix DJ many special engagements such as the Low Rider Super Car Show in Phoenix and Tucson, doing Cinco De Mayo events at South Mountain Park and downtown Phoenix for City of Phoenix, holding public dances in the ramadas at South Mountain Park with other local DJs on Sunday nights.  He also participated in the Battle of The DJs in Phoenix did many of the Valleys High school dances and prep rallies and proms around the valley, especially Saint Mary’s events.  He would occasionally spin tunes at Graham Central Station and Studio West Night Clubs, did countless birthday, quinceaneras, weddings, family weddings and family birthdays and many other events in the valley and most recently in the Town of Heber-Overgarrd at special events for the community and the American Legion post, Fraternal Order of Eagles and the local Catholic Church (Our Lady of Assumption) and also many birthdays and weddings and gatherings as well in the Heber-Overgarrd area.

Felix had a passion for hunting and fishing and always loved to go fishing whenever he had the chance in the White Mountains in Eastern AZ with his son Fabian and Nephews Orlando and Genaro. He loved to go trout fishing at the lakes on the Apache Reservation, especially Reservation Lake. He would go out on the boat for hours not coming back till night time. He loved to go hunting and shooting growing up with his brothers and go deer hunting with his son Fabian on many hunts as Fabian grew up and deer and javelina hunting with his brother Alex and Friends in later years.

Felix loved to spend time with family and all the family events, he was especially fond of Thanksgiving with the family and his sister-in-law Cathy cooking and Christmas Eve at his Uncle Arnold's and Aunt Nelly’s House as he loved to catch up with all his cousins, aunts and uncles and what they were up to and how they were doing. Felix was a big Raiders fan and would often call people up to brag about the Raiders on game day and spend the day watching Raider and Cardinals games with his dad and brother David to pass time on weekends.

Felix had the biggest heart, which made him the wealthiest man in the world.  He would give whatever he could with what little he had.  He would always offer to help, even when he had little to offer or even when he knew if physically could not do himself.  He made friends wherever he went and was always accepted in.  He will be truly missed.

At this time, I would like to thank the community of Heber-Overgaard for taking my brother Felix in and making him a part of their community as he lived there for a very short time, but made so many friends.  Thank you for helping him and taking care of him, when his health declined. It was a big help to our family for all your support.  Bless you all and continue to help those in your community in need.

I would also like to thank Lynn Smith and all her kids for their support and prayers for Felix as well during the past couple of years, especially a little girl named Hope who loved to fight and argue with Felix as it would make his days when she would visit.

A service will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas Church at 13720 West Thomas Road in Avondale, AZ 85392 on January 19th at 1:00pm.  We ask that instead of flowers please donate to the Arizona Diabetes Foundation.
