Felix was a member of St. Isaac Jogues Roman Catholic Church, Wayne, PA.  He was also a longtime member of St. Joseph Parish in Collingdale, PA.  Felix aka “Cap”, “Beans” and “Gramps” enjoyed being with his sons during hunting season and cooking his famous Pasta Fagiola.  Cap enjoyed playing cards with his sons and taking all of their money.  We all looked forward to his Tuesday night dinners with his family and listening to his stories about the good old days growing up in South Philadelphia.  He will be missed dearly by his family and many friends.
