Felix Carbajal Jr. was born April 19, 1944 in Camp Wood, TX to Felix and Trinida (Gardunia) Carbajal Sr. Felix grew up in Belle Fourche SD and graduated from Belle Fourche High School. At the age of 17 he joined the United States Army; He was a paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne brigade. He received a Purple Heart for injuries sustained while serving in the Vietnam War. For many years he worked next to his father in a family sheep shearing business. Felix was a jack of all trades for several years before he began his career in law enforcement with the Homestake Mine, Lead/Deadwood SD, Fort Meade VA Hospital in Sturgis SD and the Sheridan VA Hospital. In August 1972 he was united in marriage to LaDonna Jean Carbajal in Rapid City SD. They lived in Belle Fourche, SD for 26 years, then moved to Sheridan WY for 6 years before returning to Belle for 2 years at which time they built a home together in Sundance WY. Felix was a great, great man. A man his kids are so proud to call Father. He was a man who was always there to help those in need and those that needed a little encouragement. He was a man that was strong with the Lord and his faith. He contributed religiously to charities that helped children. He was a man that loved the outdoors; he loved camping, hunting, and fishing. Felix had a passion for guns, knives and coins. He was a man that loved his family dearly. His grandkids were his life. You could see him glow with joy whenever they yelled “papa”. He would spend most of his days tinkering in the garage, planting trees, and watering the 100+ trees he somehow found time to plant.
