Felix David Rappaport Obituary
Felix David Rappaport of Las Vegas, Nevada, 65, was called to eternal rest on Monday, June 18, 2018, in Mashantucket, CT. He died from heart related illness. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Mary Louise Rappaport; his two loving daughters, Alexandra Rappaport and Briana Rappaport; and his brother, Eric Rappaport. It is fitting that Felix was raised in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, as he demonstrated love and kindness to everyone he encountered. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Felix began his long and illustrious career in the Gaming and Hospitality Industry, from Human Resources at the Sands Hotel, Atlantic City, to VP/President of multiple Las Vegas properties, to CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino.Felix had vivacity for life and he shared this passion with everyone in his world. He recognized the talents and the strengths in everyone he met and did whatever he could to support people to be their very best. He truly respected and acknowledged the worth of every individual with whom he came in contact. To Felix, each person mattered. Anyone who has ever known or worked with Felix will miss him and his gift of making everyone realize how important they truly are. A lifelong learner, Felix was an avid reader whose in-depth knowledge about many topics made him like a human search engine for his friends and family. Spanning his entire life, he was a loving and loyal fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. Earlier this year, he was blessed to have attended Super Bowl LII, in which his Eagles won. Although his interests were many and varied the most important to him were "Faith, Family & Friends". His dedication to them was shown in immeasurable ways. He made it his life's work to enhance the lives of his family and friends, whether it was through small gestures like giving a simple yet thoughtful gift or through large gestures like providing someone with an opportunity that launched their careers. Most important to Felix were his daughters. He loved involving them in almost every aspect of his life and would do anything to make their lives complete.A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated today, Friday, June 22, at 2:00pm at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick, 213 Broadway, Norwich, CT. At a later date, Felix will be laid to rest in a private graveyard ceremony in Philadelphia.Felix's generosity was unsurpassed. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to one of his favorite charities; Wounded Warriors, The Johnny Crisstopher Charitable Children's Foundation or The Cleveland Clinic.
