Domingo U. Felix, Sr.
September 16th, 1934 – January 14th, 2020 (age 85)
SEASONS OF LOVE
Eighty-five years, three months, twenty-nine days, eight hours, fifty-four minutes, and two seconds. How do you measure a year in a life?
In cups of coffee?
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife?
How about Love?
Measure in love,
Seasons Of Love.
Domingo U. Felix, Sr. was born on September 16, 1934 in Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The son of Patricio Felix and Martina Udasco, Domingo was born into a large and loving family as the 7th of 10 children. Three of his siblings, Remedios, Jafenia, and Anuevo, mourn his loss today.
Growing up in Ilocos Norte, Domingo attended Pasuquin West Central Elementary School and Pasuquin Provincial High School before matriculating to FEATI University in Manila. There, he studied Radio Operations and Technology and launched his career as a Lineman/Operator for the National Power Corporation, where he served tirelessly for 20 years and was recognized as an all-star employee.
In 1960, Domingo married his high school sweetheart, Edna Juanita Ramos. Within their 60 years of marriage, they had 5 children: Dennis (deceased in 1978), Joaquin (Omar), Oliver, (married to Christina Felix,) Hanzel, and Gretel. They also have 5 Grand children, Nirvana, Savana, Aidan, (deceased 2016), Gian, and Alonzo. In pursuit of better economic opportunities, Domingo migrated to the United States in 1982. He held jobs at Tanon Manufacturing Inc., Hyatt Hotel, and the San Francisco International Airport, often juggling multiple jobs to support his family.
In his free time, Domingo loved to travel across the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, socialize with family and friends, tend to his garden, go on crabbing and fishing trips, and visit the casino. He was well-known for his insatiable love for music: he enjoyed playing the harmonica for loved ones and singing duets with his wife at social gatherings. Most importantly, Domingo was a selfless family man. He adored his family and demonstrated this affection by cooking and cleaning for them. Domingo also loved to spend time with his five grandchildren, two of whom he helped raise.
In his 85 years, Domingo lived an incredibly full life filled with love, admiration, and respect from his family, friends, and community. He will be remembered in loving memory as strong-willed, generous, selfless and, above all, a fighter until the very end.
