He was preceded in death by his beloved wife just 5.5 months later. Together they had three children. Their love was the real-life “Notebook” story.

Felipe was a proud owner of a 1951 Blue Chevrolet Truck that he enjoyed working and adding lights to. He enjoyed watching baseball and supporting the Atlanta Braves. He also enjoyed working in his garden.  Felipe had a special place in his heart for his grandchildren/great-grandchildren and enjoyed watching them all grow up.
