Felix graduated from homeschool in May 2016, and joined the rest of the family in moving to Kansas later that year. Felix married Yesenia Ochoa on July 20 2019.
Felix has always been an active, energetic young man, and enjoyed working with his hands outdoors with oil service companies and other excavation work. He enjoyed hiking, family time, eating out, and celebrating with friends and family. He cared deeply for other people, and dealt with tremendous burdens on behalf of others.
