Felix is proceeded in death by his loving wife, Johanna; his son, Christopher; his parents, Patrick and Nora; and 6 of his siblings. Felix is survived by his sons Patrick (Amanda) McGowan, Anthony (Bimini) Murfin, and Marcus Tunis. In addition, Felix is survived by 3 granddaughters, 1 grandson, and numerous nieces and nephews – all of whom he adored.

God speed Uncle Felix. Patrick and family please accept our sincere condolences. We have many fond memories of Uncle Felix visiting us in NY. He was charming and full of fun. A class act. My mom shared fun stories of them growing up in Ireland together with their siblings in their tiny cottage house. We will always remember his wit. He even kept us laughing in church!
Much love sent to all of you.
Eileen and Maura and families.
