Born September 16, 1986, in Lamesa, Felix is the son of Felix Gonzalez-Torres Sr. and Maria Chavez.  He worked as a truck driver allowing him to both travel and live in Texas, California, Arizona, Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska. Felix often enjoyed family barbeque gatherings and time spent with his daughter, nieces and nephews who thought the world of him.  Felix was a kind and caring individual – the best father and uncle.  He was often referred to as an “old soul”.  He loved music, especially the “oldies”.  He liked to read and was intrigued with the Mexican Revolution.  A talented writer, he was in the process of authoring a book.  A football game was also something he very much enjoyed as he was a Huge Dallas Cowboy Fan.

Felix leaves behind to cherish his memories his daughter, Alessandra “Desi”; parents, Felix Gonzalez-Torres Sr. and Maria Chavez; siblings, Maricela, Maribel, Marilee, Marisol, Mariel, Jose, Jesus, Melissa, Justin, and Yesenia; numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, and cousins; grandmother, Beatriz Alvarez; and girlfriend, Priscilla.
