TRAVERSE CITY - Felix Popa, 82, of Traverse City, formerly of the Kalkaska-Mancelona and Royal Oak areas, died Saturday, Dec. 27, 2003, at Munson Medical Center. Born May 31, 1921, in Solon Township, he was the son of Paul and Anna (Flees) Popa. On March 27, 1945, in Isadore, he married the former Phyllis Switzer.
Felix served his country honorably with the United States Army during World War II in Alaska. He later retired from his employment with the Ferndale School District and St. Paul Lutheran Church in Royal Oak.
