I'll always remember Felix for having a special type of old school, understated grace, dignity, and class that's rarely seen anymore. For an impressionable young man like me back in the day he was strong, positive influence in his quiet way without either one of us knowing it at the time. I've never forgotten his appreciation of the value of the small, important things in God's creation. And as painful as his no-car-radio policy was for us back then, that legacy has lived on! I think Felix would smile at seeing me driving my family through the countryside forty years later in 2014 enjoying the scenery, actually talking to each other, and comfortable in some occasional silence!

I first met Felix in 1973 when I joined the Saxton Band. He was a valuable member of the band. If the band was short on trumpet players, he would play trumpet. If we needed a trombone player, he would play trombone. His son John also played trumpet in the band. Later on, I played with Felix in the "For Dancers Only" big band where he played trombone. Felix was a talented musician and a man of great character. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Felix's family. He was a loyal Rotarian and served the Clifton Springs Rotary Club, his community and his country well. We will certainly miss his detailed documentation of local history and people in his life.
