Kenneth was born in Ragley, Louisiana on Friday, November 3, 1939, to parents, Ada (Cummings) and Kennie Felice. Kenneth became a lifelong resident of Orange, Texas after moving from Houston, Texas. He was full of life and enjoyed every moment of it. Kenneth could often be found occupying his time building things by hand such as deer stands, as he preferred to do it himself rather than buy one pre-made. Hunting and fishing were two of his very favorite activities in life and he did so every chance that life allowed. He also loved farming and would produce an abundance of everything he grew. He would always yield an abundance of fruits and vegetables such as, okra and oranges, that was just too much for one man, but out of the goodness of his heart, rather than sell it, he would give it all away to family, friends and whomever else wanted some. Kenneth was talented at playing the accordion and enjoyed doing so. He loved the Cajun French music and listened to it all day, every day. Kenneth made his living as a Police Officer in Deridder, Louisiana and in Houston, Texas during the 1960’s, a Rice Miller for Beaumont Rice Mill, and retired as an Electrician. He was truly, the “Jack of All Trades”. He was a believer in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and enjoyed reading The Word.
Kenneth was a loving husband, son, father, grandfather, great grandfather and wonderful friend, who will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.
Left to cherish his memory are, his son, Kenneth Felice, Jr. and wife Julia; daughters, Cindy Felice, Connie Burroughs and husband James, Mona Liberty; 13 Grandchildren and 10 Great-Grandchildren; sisters, Eloa Corbello, Emma Perigo and Neil Jones.
Kenneth is preceded in death by his loving wife 27 years, DeAnna Felice; parents, Kennie and Ada Felice; brothers, J.W. Felice, Wesley Felice a.k.a Dub, as well as, Stewart Felice; sisters, Lacy Clements, Hazel Richard and Wava Joyce Brid.
