It has been 6 days since you left us with a question, "Why God took you so early?"

I'm still in the process of accepting God's plan over us.
We lost not just an uncle but also a friend and a man with a beautiful soul. I will not be who I am today, without you. I will be forever indebted for all the unselfish support and love you gave.
You are loved and always be remembered.

I love you always tito.

Felix was a special gift and friend to so many island friends ! His smile and caring natural will never be forgotten!
I’m shocked and sad for your loss! My prayers for all!
I bet he’s already found a special place to go fishing !

Thanks for all you have done to us Tito Dong2. You are a good, loving and considerate. I can't even explain my gratitude to you. You are always there in our hearts. You are a worthy father and should be praised. Nanay Monic,
Mommy Aida and Papa Jun love you so much. Even if sometimes there is misunderstanding but I know that love cannot be reciprocated by hate and family love, will always prevail. I can't imagine why God took you, you're so kind to me. My tears and mourning are not enough for my gratitude to you. I hope you are happy with Tatay Oble in heaven. I miss you and I love you. We will always pray for you.😭😭

“The Lord gives and the Lord takes away”

Felix was a blessing to his parents and members of his family.

He was a loving son and brother, and an amazing uncle.

He never forgot his roots. He never forgot his mother. His constant calls to our mother made her so proud and gave her so much joy.

His financial generosity helped his niece and nephews succeed in their studies. He saw them graduate in college, work and he was so proud of their achievements. He continued to dream big, not only for his only daughter, Gili, but for his niece, Karen, and his nephews, Mark, Dave, Anthony, Timothy and Frederick.

We will always remember him as a multi-skilled spirit. He rose above all the most life challenging situations.

Rest in the loving hands of our Creator my brother. We will miss your love and your positive vibes.

See you in the afterlife my brother!

There are no words to express my deepest condolences on the loss of someone who meant so much to so many, especially to our family. Felix was more than a caretaker to my Dad, Bob Hayden. In the last years of his life, Felix was a friend, a companion, someone who would happily take my Dad to Wendy's for a burger and a Frosty. I truly believe, it was because of Felix, my Dad's life was happier because of Felix's constant joy and spirit. My Dad lived longer under Felix's care and loving attention which meant that we, his children, his loving wife Nancy, were provided more time with my father before he passed. Felix was a part of our family. We will miss him always.

I can not express how heavy my heart is after hearing of Felix passing. He was the kindest, most caring human I have ever known. He cared so deeply for my father I considered him a member of our family. Please know I am sending you all my love, strength, and prayers during this terrible time. Please let us know if you need anything. Love, Jenny (Hayden) Morreale

Everyone loved Felix. He was so sweet, caring, and loving— and most loyal to those families whom he worked for. I loved Sunday mornings when he’d bring me 6 donut holes.
In Michigan we’d go to a weekly farmers market together and buy things to cook together. We shared a love of cooking together—. I think most of the time he preferred to get me out of the kitchen.
He is super proud of Gili, his beautiful daughter.
He’ll be missed by all of us he left behind.
