Felix G. Fernandez Salazar Jr.

December 17, 2004 — April 27, 2023

Felix was brave, loving, active, and free. He was born December 17, 2004 in Bryan, TX, where he lived his whole life.

Felix loved riding his motorcycle and driving his Mustang named “Spermy”. His goal was to eventually ride a “Manly Motorcycle.” You would always see Felix upgrading his Mustang. Most of the upgrades were done by him.

Felix loved hanging out with his friends. He made so many friends and has a close group of friends whom he cherished. Felix loved doing outdoor activities with his friends and family, and going to try new activities. He was so excited to go on his high school field trip to Japan in June. This would have been his first time on a plane, which worried him a little, but his love for adventure and energy to explore overcame his worries.

He loved going to the movie theater, riding jet skis, working out, fishing (ever since he could hold a fishing pole), being at the beach, going to car shows, playing video games with his friends (we will miss his laughter in the middle of the night).

Felix was such a hard worker and had dreams of becoming a police officer. At the age of 18, he completed College Station Police Department’s Citizens Academy and did Ride Alongs with Bryan Police Department. He planned to attend Sam Houston State University to get a degree in Criminal Justice. 

People will always remember Felix’s laughter, sarcasm, his respect for others, and how much love he gave when needed. He had a way of talking to others to make them feel special. He is missed and will always be remembered by everyone that met him.

“In 2021, one day we went fishing in Texas City near Galveston, TX. We took the jet skis with us and as we lowered the jet skis, I (Daddy) hit the pier. Felix laughed, but was scared at the same time because he saw I had Mama with me. I was able to control the jet skis against the strong waves, but Felix got in front of me with his sport jet ski. He was jumping the big waves the big boats left behind. He came back to check on us because we were driving slow, about 40 mph. When we arrived at the bay of Texas City to fish, my boy left us safely near an old boat that sank. As we fished, he went out to enjoy his jet ski. Then about an hour goes by and I go out to look for him and that’s when I saw him enjoying himself, doing zig-zags with the jet ski. We stopped fishing and decided to enjoy the jet ski with my boy. He was so happy because we were all enjoying the deep side of the ocean. I feel like that was a happy moment for him to enjoy the jet ski with his parents.” 

“In 2020, we went on vacation for 15 days. We went to Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, South Padre Island. In Corpus Christi, he wanted to rent an electrical scooter and he showed me and Mama how to use the scooter. That day was enjoyable and we loved spending time with our son. He treated us like kids because we didn’t know how to use the scooters, but also concerned that we didn't hurt ourselves. Once we learned how to use the scooters, we rode around Corpus Christi. His loving words to me were ”You’re scared of scooters”, but I told him “scooters are for teenagers.” Then we went to South Padre Island but Felix didn’t like it because there weren’t activities for him to do. Then, he decided our next stop would be Port Aransas because there would be fun activities to do. We rented a golf cart for the family and we had so much fun driving around Port Aransas. In the evening, we went to fish in his favorite spot where the big boats left. He wanted to go deep sea fishing that went 80 miles into the ocean for 12 hours to fish red snappers, but he danced on the boat and made movements. I told him he was going to get dizzy. When we arrived to the fishing spot, he could not fish for about four hours because he got sea sick and laid down in a room with A/C. He still checked up on my wife and me to see how many fishes we caught. When Felix felt a little better, he was able to fish and caught up to the fishing limit for red snappers. We made it back to shore, we went to enjoy the beach and Felix made a lot of friends.”

“This happened around the time my brother was in middle school. I loved watching my brother play his Playstation 4. There was one video game that I thought was scary. My brother was playing his game in the living room, and I was standing to the side of the living room and saw the TV screen was dark, but I heard one character breathing heavily. Felix asked me if I wanted to see something, and I said yeah. Next thing you know, Felix turns on a flashlight and a zombie screams at us. I jump in the air and run away. Felix laughed. I'll miss his laugh.” 

“This happened around the time my brother was in middle school. My brother was the one that got me hooked on a video game called “Fortnite”. I was still learning how to play the game. There is a part of the game where you fight a swarm of zombies and I knew I was going to need help, so a random player (the robber) joined my request for help and told me they need a stronger weapon to fight at the level I was at so I crafted a weapon and gave it to the other player. The player laughed at me and left the game. I was able to grab his user name and I told my brother what happened. It looked like my brother was on a mission to avenge me. <3 Felix was able to join a gym with the robber and smooth talked his way to trading weapons. My brother knows how to talk, he has so much confidence. I admire him so much. My brother asked for the weapon I told him about, and when the robber displayed the weapon, my brother grabbed the weapon before the robber could retrieve the weapon. Felix argued with the robber saying to not steal from his sister and the robber argued back saying he didn’t do such a thing. My brother defended me. I miss him.”

"This past spring break when Felix went to Houston for Texas 2k23 when he was cruising to Buc-ee’s, he was showing who he really was, his goofy, loveable, fun side. One moment I remember from the trip was on the way from Buc-ee’s to the track. Anytime he got open space or around people he would always make as much noise as possible, with a huge smile on his face. When we were at the track there was a race where the cars shook the stadium and after the race, Felix had the biggest smile on his face rewatching the race over and over fangirling over the two cars, while everyone was laughing at him for fangirling over the two cars. One memory I won't forget from this trip was after the track we went to a meet and there was this car that was shooting flames and Felix walked towards the car with his phone like a moth going to light, or a zombie. On the way home, he was cruising and when he got into College Station, his transmission blew and he took the closest exit. His friends put their hazards on to say goodbye, confused on why he took an early exit, and then they got a call from him saying, “Yeah, I think my transmission blew.” Our friends were laughing at him thinking he was joking but he was serious about it and told them, “I’m being dead serious right now” with cracks in his voice from laughing. Once our friends pulled up to him in the Academy parking lot, they saw him with a huge smile on his face, laughing that his transmission blew up and that Carlos went right back to sleeping after waking up for a second to hear Felix say the transmission was blown and letting out a little laugh."
