Carmen John Feula passed away on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, in Dallas, Texas. He was born, April 12, 1944, in Bayonne, New Jersey to Sam and Adele Chludziski Feula. A Celebration of Life will be held June 25, 2022, by Dr. Rev. Jeff May at 11:00 a.m. at City Point United Methodist Church in North Richland Hills, Texas.
Carmen and Meg, his wife of 57 years, met in 1963 in Bayonne, New Jersey and were highs school sweet hearts. They were married on June 12, 1965 and continued to reside in Bayonne where they started their family with two daughters, Meganne and Nikki. Later, after having moved to Lakehurst, New Jersey, Carmen accepted a job with Bell International that brought the family to Texas in 1978. After changing industries and moving into healthcare, he retired from Las Colinas Surgery Center in 2014. While retired, he served with the North Richland Hills Police department as a Volunteer in Police Service (VIPS) until his passing.
Throughout his life, his greatest joy was spending time with his loved ones. He adored his daughters and was the perfect girl dad. He was an even better father figure to his favorite, and only granddaughter, Kelsey. He coached RYA soccer for his girls, and never missed a softball, basketball, or volleyball game. Almost every summer he would pack up the family and head out on vacation. If there was a beach, you could count Carmen in. He and his family traveled all throughout the Caribbean to places like Aruba, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas. In 2020, Carmen became a great-grandfather and finally got his little boy, Trace. He adored Trace more than anything and was so happy to finally have someone to play cars and trucks with. So much so, you often found them playing in the garage for hours.
Carmen was an active and faithful member of City Point United Methodist Church since 1980, where he enjoyed serving the homeless ministries. Additionally, he faithfully supported the prison ministry, Life on the Rock. Church helped define his character in his daily life, and his caring and kindness were a testament to his beliefs.
Carmen was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Samuel Feula. He is survived by his loving wife, Meg Feula, his two daughters, Meganne Feula and Nicole Feula Fisher and husband Charles Fisher; granddaughter, Kelsey Guidroz and husband Tate Guidroz; great-grandson, Trace Adam Guidroz; sister-in-law, Arlene Feula; sister-in-law Janet Nally and husband Martin Nally Sr.; brother in-law Bill Hromnak and husband Milton Gordon; cousin, Jerry Mack and several nieces and nephews; best friend of over 40 years, Lee Centella. The family would like to thank Dr. Joseph Lambert, Dr. Kamlesh Sisodiya and Dr. Matt Fay, for the care they provided to Carmen throughout the years.
