Felix loved the outdoors, the ocean, skiing, sailing, and flying small aircraft. He loved watching his grandchildren play sports and attended every school and family event he could, from softball and graduations to weddings. He will be remembered for his kind demeanor, love for his family, his ability to enjoy the small things in life, dancing, singing, for his jokes... his laugh, and his kind blue eyes.
A private service will be held for family and friends at the Fournier home in Maine in August.
