THERE WILL BE A "CELEBRATION OF LIFE" ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 15 AT 2:OOPM AT THE SHARON IN SPANISH SPRINGS IN THE VILLAGES

This note came in from the Morse Family and they requested that we share it with you:

Dear Villages family,

It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing of our dear friend, Oscar Feliu.

As many of you know, Oscar came to The Villages with our family from Brownwood and has been part of our Villages family for many, many years. Oscar personified the heart of giving back to the community, always first in line to volunteer for a fundraiser or go the extra mile to help residents and children alike grow and develop exciting new talents. A man of so many talents and interests, from music to fly fishing. Oscar is best remembered as a devoted family man, always focused on the success and happiness of his wife, children, and grandchildren.

Celebration of his life will be held Sunday, November 15th – 2:00 pm, at The Sharon L Morse performing arts center.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers that you please make a donation to either.
