FELIX R. BAZ-DRESCH, CLU, CHFC Quiet affection describes Felix, with heart for his Faith Community, family, friends, business associates and clients. In return they surrounded him during his illness. On November 20, 2017, at age 79, ALS took the body but not his spirit. Felix grew up in Glendale, MO, attended SLU High School and SLU.

Felix was an accomplished 5-string banjo player, sharing his talent with others, creating lasting friendships at the Walnut Valley Festival. Felix's most precious gift was being with family, especially Hilton Head vacations. Missing him most are his wife of 51 years, Mary Ann (Schaeffer), daughters Michelle (Damon) Lewis, Angela (Michael) Fiordelisi, Swiss daughter Claudia (Hansruedi) Schumacher; grandchildren Mason, Morgan and Drake Lewis, Peyton, Mia and Dominic Fiordelisi, Virginia and Sophie Schumacher; brothers John (Cheri) and Mike (Karen); cherished extended family. He was proceeded in death by parents, Rafael and Edith Baz-Dresch. He donated his body for ALS research.
