2 (from the file of Marlin Beulow)
When "Roy" was 17 years old, he took a job on a merry-go-round and worked one summer going from place to place, not with a whole carnival, but just the one ride. Perhaps one summer was enough of that, because his next job was with a sawmill.
At the age of 26, he married Cora Mae Patten, a young girl of sixteen. They were married in the parlor of her father's home. Following the death of their first child in 1909, they moved to Tomah in Monroe County, where their second child, Beulah was born. After several years in Tomah but before the birth of their third child, Kenneth, they returned to Oshkosh. Roy worked for Oshkosh Trunk Company and The Diamond Match Company prior to going to work for the Wisconsin Power and Light Company where he was a trouble shooter on the electric street cars. It was while there that he lost two of his fingers when the motorman, who did not know that Roy was under the car, drove the car from the car barn.
In the summer of 1922 the family moved to Clark County, the site of Roy's aging father's farm. They went there to manage the farm for his parents but by the time they got there, J. B. had decided that he could still work the farm so that left the young Felix family without a place to live.
Roy bought property a short distance away and with the help of neighbors constructed a two-story frame house. The "house raising" process was so rapid that Roy and his family had a place to sleep that night. The Fall of 1924 brought a tornado through the countryside. It stripped the corn fields of all the ears of corn, the chickens were separated from their feathers and the roof from the house making the house "rock like a cradle." Soon after the tornado, Darrell was born and Roy, with his family, moved back to the farm.
This time it was one year before J. B. decided to move back again, and when he did, the younger Felix family returned to Oshkosh. Roy worked at making grass rugs woven on large looms. A short time later he gained employment at the Winnebago State Hospital (later renamed Winnebago Mental Health Institute) and remained there until retiring. While at "Winnebago" he contacted Painters Colic from the lead in paint and had to transfer to the plastering division. While there, he was instrumental in getting the union started and was eventually made its president.
After the death of his father in 1926, his mother lived with them until her death in 1935. Due to Roy's later health problems, Roy and his wife spent many winters in the dry climate of Arizona. He died on August 11, 1962.
