It is with great sadness that we receive the news that Felix T. Manuel, born January 11, 1968, passed away on June 8, 2021. He died peacefully in his sleep while vacationing in Chicago with his beloved daughter.

Felix was born in Davao oriental, Philippines. He is survived by his daughter Gilicarl, her mother, and a brother and sister. His soul was always in the Philippines, and we had his heart. He built a hotel/apartment building in the Philippines and named it “BOCA”, where he planned to retire someday.

This kind man never met a stranger as he greeted everyone with his infectious smile.

He is survived by the Boca Grande families of Becky Deupree, Cotton Hanley, Nancy Hayden, Bill Heisel, Pam Miles, and Camille Williams. A day didn’t pass that he didn’t check on his “girls.”
