I worked with Felix many years in Leeville, La. Felix was highly respected and appreciated by his fellow workers. He was a great mentor to many young oilfield workers. Felix loved trawling and he loved his family most of all. Especially his son Tal. Heaven is a brighter place now, as I'm sure Felix has met a lot of the folks there already. See you again my friend. God bless you all.
