Lake Park airman dies in Southwest Asia

June 15, 2007

Lake Park - An airman from Lake Park died Monday while deployed to Udeid Air Base in Qatar.     52-year-old Lt. Col. Glade Felix died from heart complications, though his death is still under investigation.

He was a reservist with the 622nd Aeromedical Staging Squadron at Robins Air Force Base, and  was helping to establish hospitals in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Felix was originally from Utah, and attended Brigham Young University. He moved to Lake Park while serving at Moody Air Force Base, and became an active member of the Lowndes County Community.  

"He founded the Lowndes County Valdosta Soccer League, he was a high school referee, he was also involved in boy scouting and his church," said his son, Chris Felix.    

His love for the military inspired his son Chris to join the Army, and he is now stationed in Kansas.

A memorial will be held Saturday at Moody Air Force Base. His funeral will be Thursday in Springville, Utah.
