In memory of
Felix Amadeo Saravia
Felix Amadeo Saravia, put up a very strong fight to cancer, which eventually caused him to become very weak, near his last few days, where he gave very clear instructions to his son, about what was most important, this being, to always ensure care and love given to the children. Felix started his journey home to his Creator, early morning on October 11, 2016 at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences. He was born March 22, 1936, and predeceased by Maria del Carmen Moreira of San Jorge, San Miguel El Salvador and his son Julio Alberto in May of 1984, and his granddaughter. Felix was survived by his son, Ennio, and his wife, Michelle their children Julio Xavier, Emerson Danilo and Javier Cruz; and Jill and Dante. He is survived by his daughters Marta and Orlando and their children Tonio (Brenda), Silvia and Paco, and her children Walter, Frank and Johnathon, and Sandra and Lorenzo, and their children, Nathalia Marisol and Rodrigo Alexander, and Maurico, all of whom live back in El Salvador, California and Texas. Felix moved to Canada in 1987 and made home in Thunder Bay. He arrived to a new city and learned to fit in quickly receiving support from various volunteer efforts and the City of Thunder Bay. He spent his days with friends and family, as Felix also suffered from polio and was not able to work due to his physical limitations, however, he was a Tailor since age 14, and loved to repair clothing for people while at home. His days started early, where he would board Thunder Bay transit and head to Victoriaville Mall for a visit and coffee. Visiting was very important to Felix including at the TBHSC where he made many friends while there. He loved to travel by his power wheelchair and visit. He loved especially visits by the Marina with his grandchildren. He loved sweets and was a very simple person with a big heart. One of his favourite places as well, the Thunder Bay Charity Casino where received meals and enjoyed friends. His last days were met with support by the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences in 2A and the Palliative Care Unit as well at the Indigenous Liaison Unit including the Deacon, whom we would like to recognize for their hard work, dedication and consideration. We also need to thank the CCAC for all their help and support, Habitat for Humanity, and the Multicultural Association. We also need to say thanks to the Thunder Bay Transit for always ensuring his consistent riding of the bus - 29 years of riding. Thank you for the kindness shown to our dad. We truly appreciate how you all supported us during this difficult time in our lives and in caring for Felix. Kind words go a long way. Services for Felix will be held at the Mountain in Fort William First Nation where we will hold a sacred fire for an afternoon and early evening on this Friday. We will be doing a ceremony by Lake Superior near at the International Taiji Park near the Moon Gate because this is where he loved to meet with his grandchildren on Saturday at 3:00. A mass will be planned in the near future, which can be found on our Facebook page: En memoria de Felix Saravia. Thank you to my family from Marathon and Pic River who are supporting us as well.
