FELIX, Ernest “Ernie” Charles, Jr.

passed away peacefully and surrounded by relatives in his home on Monday, May 3, 2021. Ernie was 72 years old. Ernie was born in Tucson, AZ on December 13, 1948, to Julia and Ernie Felix, Sr. As a lifelong Tucsonian, he knew Tucson like the back of his hand. He graduated from Tucson High and married Anna Rubalcaba in 1967 in San Jose, CA. Ernie worked in the sales industry for years and finally retired from WW Williams in 2019. When he wasn’t working, Big Ern could be found outside, cleaning his yard, watching sports, or on the golf course. Ernie was proud to serve on the board of directors of his Crooked Tree Golf Course at the country club and enjoyed talking about the bets he had made while playing golf. He loved the Dodgers and the Republican Parties fearlessly, and always had an opinion on gamers, games, or politics. You could tell from the amount of junk he talked to you how much Ernie liked you. And while he wouldn’t admit it, Ernie loved many. Most of all, Ernie loved his children and grandchildren. He was so proud of them and loved watching them play sports. A funeral mass will be held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. A celebration of life will follow immediately. Ernie’s death is preceded by his daughter Jenni and father Ernie. He is survived by his wife of 53 years Anna; Children, Ernie III (Tisha), Rebecca (Matthew), Lisa (Daniel); Grandchildren, Anthony, Arianna, Dominic, Preston, Hadley, and Charlie; Mother Julia and siblings, Anna, Gilbert and Bob. In honor of Ernie’s memory, the family encourages those who wish, especially men, to wear golf shirts and trousers. Arrangements by CARRILLO’S TUCSON MORTUARY, INC.
