Where do I begin, the birth of children and grandchildren, weekend road trips, watching sports, playing volleyball, concerts, and hanging out the house. Most of all your sarcastic comments and joking around. You always knew how to make everyone laugh and make them feel apart of the family. You left us way to soon, you are in a better place, no suffering and you can rest in peace. I know you will be looking down at all of us laughing and make those smart comments. I will really miss you, until we meet again. Love always Kimberly

My tio will be truly missed. He was one of a kind my greatest memory of my tio was him always trash talking my team or any other team besides the Cowboys. I use to love football talk on Facebook w him. He would get everyone riled up in a fun way 😁. He will never be forgotten because he was such a loving and caring person he made such a good impact on a lot of people. I LOVE YOU TIO 🥰 till we meet again 🙏🏼

Felix since day one you opened your arms and welcomed me into your family. I am deeply hurt of having lost such a special person as yourself so soon. I truly wish I would of had more than 4 years to create memories with you, however, I am thankful of having had the opportunity of having you in my life. I will miss the 7 am conversations we would have while waiting for everyone to wake up and you showing me your favorite classic cars. I hope I was able to prove to you that you and your family mean the world to me and you go in peace knowing I will take care of Angel. I promise not only to look out after him, but also to be there for Alice like you always were. Eventhough, it will not be easy seeing you go to heaven this soon I know you will still make it back in time for our wedding. We will see you soon Felix. We love you.

Felix , You are like a brother to me. You were always there when I needed you. We had a lot of great times growing up together. I enjoyed the road trips our families used to take together. Spending quality time with each other, just shooting the breeze, playing sports and talking a lot of BS to each other. You were the one who helped me get employed with the City of Fort Worth, If it was not for you, no telling where me and my family would be today. I will always love you and will never forget you. Do not worry about your family, we will always be there for them. REST IN PEACE MY BROTHER
