Felix was born in Santa Cruz de Juventino Rosas, Guanajuato on May 18, 1940. He came to the United States with a 6th grade education at the age of 12. At this young age in Mission, Texas, he began his long history of labor to help support his family. In 1957, he arrived in Watsonville, California. Watsonville is where he rooted his family, long connection of family friends, and work history. He worked in the agriculture business for many years, drove to deliver bread for PV Bakery, was a truancy officer for PVUSD and managed Buena Vista Migrant Camp. His last years were spent enjoying what he referred to as his hobby, which was owner operator of Figueroa Farms and Figueroa Trucking. He was also very involved with Assumption Church for many years. Through his involvement with the church, he developed a great passion for serving others in many ways, but most importantly in the kitchen. He loved to cook and bake. He retired in 2001 due to health reasons and from that point on, he devoted his time and love to his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family, and friends.
