May 24, 1927 ~ September 8, 2023 (age 96) 96 Years Old
Felix Trujillo, age 96, a resident of Belen, NM, passed away peacefully on September 8, 2023. Felix was known as "The Million Dollar Man," and even had his picture printed on Million Dollar Bills that he'd hand out around town to remind people just who he was! After his service in WWII, Felix resided in Albuquerque, NM. He went on to retire from his career as an Electrical Engineer for PNM. During the 1980’s, Felix, and his wife, lived together on their ranch in Belen where they had the most beautiful plum orchard. He loved the ranch and all the family history that resided in his home town.
He is preceded in death by his first wife, Delora Duran Trujillo; second wife, JoAnn Trujillo; daughter, Gail Ulate; step-daughters, Alice and Cindy; parents; brothers; sisters; grandparents; and son-in-law, Eugene Sanchez.
Felix is survived by his devoted and loving daughter, Eunice Sanchez; grandson, Jason Sanchez and girlfriend, Danielle with a great-grandbaby on the way; and new adopted daughter, in friendship, Tina Tannoya.
There will be no services held for Felix at this time.
