Frank Felix, Jr.
Frank Felix Jr, a man of great faith, love of family and life, wisdom and work ethic, left this world peacefully on March 13th, 2020 when the Good Lord called him home. Frank was born on May 25, 1925 in Honolulu to Frank Felix Sr. and Odelia Prigana Felix. He grew up in Kaimuki with his siblings, Agnes, Nora, Bernice and Alexander. He attended St. Louis school until December, 1941 when, at the age of 16 he joined the war effort and went to work in the sheet metal shops at Pearl Harbor and subsequently served time in the US Army. Frank was very successful in all his endeavors - from insurance sales to finance and finally as a General Contractor and Developer. He always managed to set aside time in his busy work schedule for his family and to support his children's athletic activities. He was actively involved with community sports groups as a Coach and Booster as well as holding various Board and/or Director positions, including President of the Kailua American Little League, Kailua Mustangs Pop Warner, Koolau Bobby Sox and the St. Andrew's Priory Athletic Booster Club. He donated much of his time and resources to leading fund raising efforts, including organizing and promoting "A Night in Portugal" to fund travel expenses for the Kailua Mustangs trip to Thousand Oaks, CA for the '73 Friendship Bowl; sweetbread sales to cover travel costs for the '76 and '80 Koolau Bobby Sox All Star teams to travel to Buena Park, CA for National competition; and the raffle to fund the purchase a bus to transport Priory athletes. He and his company, Wonderland Homes, Inc. sponsored countless athletic teams with jackets and jerseys - including the infamous Kailua Mustang HUSTLE, PRIDE, LOYALTY and DESIRE practice jerseys in the 70's. His presence on the football field sidelines always made the game highlight reel as he ran along the sidelines "coaching" receivers and running backs into the end zone. He was a fixture at his children's sporting events throughout their youth, high school and college careers. Later in life he had the opportunity to proudly cheer on his grandchildren at softball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, and basketball games, cheerleading and band competitions, and track and swim meets - always "coaching" from the sidelines, providing words of encouragement and life lessons. Frank cherished time spent together with family and friends, whether it be at a sporting event, traveling the world, Felix family annual traditions like Malasada Day or New Year's Day Champagne Brunch, or in the shade of his lanai taking in the view of Mt. Olomana and reminiscing about life. He is survived by his loving wife and partner of 60+ years, Clara, his son Frank Felix III (Mandy), daughters Stacy L. F. Kailio (Matthew), Liana F. Felix (Brian) and Debra K. Reltien (Jerome); grandchildren Lexi Felix, Ariana Felix, Frank Felix IV, Kapua Howser (Cameron), Piikea Kailio, Seann Kailio, Mara Reltien and Matthias Reltien; great- granddaughter Kiele Howser; sister Bernice Brissette; and numerous nieces & nephews. As we celebrate Frank's life and cherish those unforgettable moments in time, we take comfort in knowing he touched many lives and that many touched him too. We are all blessed to have been a part of Frank's life journey. Due to circumstances, private service & scattering of ashes were held. The family appreciates your support, love & friendship.
