Felix was born July 5, 1956 in Terry County to Nestor & Linda Rodriguez. He married Nora Gomez on May 24, 1974 in Lubbock and enjoyed fishing, watching cowboy movies, and making art. Although his health towards the end kept him from many things, it never kept him from praising God. His belief was stronger than others unbelief and it showed by the way he kept his faith up till the end; “where is your faith” is what he would ask all the while making sure everyone knew who was really in charge. He fought the good fight, he finished the race, and he kept the faith, and on June 9, 2019 he received his crown of righteousness which the Lord gave to him on that day.
