He was born on May 6, 1932, in Jasper, FL, to Math Bennett and Iris Culbreth Bennett. Felix attended school in Jasper before joining the Army in 1950. He met and married the love of his life, LaHoma Burrell (also in the Army) while stationed at Ft. Benning in Columbus, GA in 1952. During his long military career, he served in the US and abroad. Felix's entire adult life was spent in service to his country. Felix served 3 years in the Army, 22 years in the Air Force, and 20 years of civil service at the National Marine Fisheries Service on Panama City Beach.
