Felix Santos, Sr.

December 13, 1932 - March 7, 2024

Felix Santos, Sr. was born on December 13, 1932 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  He was the second oldest child and 1 of 9 children born to Mayo and Domingo Santos. He died on March 7, 2024 and is survived by two brothers, Jose Luis and Jimmy, and three sisters, Teresa, Nilda and Maribel.  He was predeceased by his parents, his sisters Carmen and Lydia, and by his brother William. 


Felix Sr. was married to Juanita Santos with whom he had five children, Felix Jr., Sophie, Maritza, Ruth Miriam and Peter. Felix also had six grandchildren, Mark, Aisha, Damaris, Paulie, Anthony, and Jonathan, as well as eight great grandchildren, Teya, Rebecca, Amariah, Zoey, Ethan, Adrian, Gavin, and Ashton. 


Felix was a hardworking, loyal and God-loving man who dedicated his life to his family as a responsible, committed, and active son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather.  He was a faithful and devoted servant to Jehovah God as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses for more than 60 years. His strong religious beliefs and principles guided his life and were pivotal to his unwavering purpose and drive to honor Jehovah in the loving nature of his spirit and his enthusiastic service to sharing his faith and biblical knowledge with his family, neighbors and community. 


Felix lived for most of his life, after leaving Puerto Rico in 1954, in Manhattan, New York City.  He overcame many, many, health, economic and traumatic family challenges, but throughout his life, remained faithful and steadfast in adhering to his Bible-based beliefs as a Jehovah’s Witness in the midst of having to make difficult decisions for himself and his family.   


Among the most painful experiences he underwent in his life were the losses of his loved ones throughout his life, the loss of his son Peter, his wife Juanita, his grandson Paulie and his son Felix. His Bible-based hope of the resurrection of being reunited with them all here on earth, helped him to overcome these horrific losses.   Thus, he remained a hopeful, loving, humorous, and humble man who was always content with the circumstances in his life and made the best of any situation he was confronted with.  He never lost his sense of humor and teasing ways.  He loved “boleros romanticos”, he loved to make people laugh and feel comfortable around him.  He was loved by his family, friends and spiritual brothers and sisters, and will be missed tremendously. 

A Memorial Service will be held Sunday, March 17, 2024 at 3:00 p.m. at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 193 Madison Street, New York, NY 10002.
