I worked at Halliburton and had the privilege of knowing Felton, for the short time I was there, at the same time. He was a great person and I liked to listen to the stories he used to tell. I didn’t see him much after, but Faye became a good friend and used to keep me informed about what he was up to! He and Faye, I feel, are happily together again in heaven! We will all meet again someday!
My thoughts and prayers are with Felton and Fay’s family. They will both be missed by all that knew them!
