He accepted his challenges early on and went on to live a full life in every way. His father founded and owned a construction business and trained his sons to be masons. Felt 's brothers trained him in the family business and he worked alongside them for many years. As his brothers moved on, Felt started his own lawn business. Felt left Lexington to move to Boston, Mass., with his oldest sister Helen. He worked at Boston Hospital in food services. He was able to ride the bus to and from work and made quite an impression on all that knew him. After returning to Lexington, he enjoyed his work at Puddin 'sÓ Barber Shop.Felt mastered the use of his moped and used it to get around town for many years. He was very proud of this accomplishment.A major part of Felt 's life was care giving. He was a protector, corrector, and role model for many of his nieces and nephews. He was always there looking out for all of them. His routine included daily check-ins for many of the sick and shut-ins in the neighborhood. He was happy to run errands, sit and talk them or do whatever was needed to make his friends feel better.He left Lexington in 2003 with his sister Louise, and began the last phase of his life in Jacksonville, Fla. In Jacksonville, he was a part of the Grove House, an organization for the developmentally disabled. As a part of that program, he was employed by Amsterdam Restaurant where he served as a custodian. His employer said, The restaurant has never been this clean.ÓHe was loved by every person that met him. His spirit and unconditional love was felt by many. He often said, I am never alone; there is Me, Myself and I.Ó The MeÓ was caring, compassionate and filled with unconditional love; MyselfÓ was the prankster, practical joker and funny man; and the IÓwas the gentle soul that sang parts of songs that uplifted the weariest heart.Time was a very important part of his life. You could always set your watch by his timely arrivals and departures. The noon hour was his prayer time every day. No matter what, he would stop whatever he was doing and thank and praise the Lord in his own way. A compassionate friend, a faithful follower of God, full of life, spirited prankster, earth angel, an amazing uncle.Ó Our lives will never be the same without FELT!
