When many think of our friends at the Monastery, their first thought is of Felix...
Sadly, Felix passed on March 12 and his services will be held tomorrow morning, March 16, 2010 at the Monastery.
Felix loved Huntsville and was one of monks who was able to get out of the compound regularly to work and visit with the neighbors. He was a sincere man and friend to all.
While growing up in the family grocery store (now the Ogden Valley Community Church), I looked forward to Brother Felix's visits on Tuesdays and Fridays when he would regularly bring us a loaf of fresh monastery bread with honey while delivering eggs.
More recently, Huntsville residents will remember when Felix took part in our Independence Day patriotic program a few short years ago.
Here is his obituary:
