Dr. Felix Garfunkel
Dr. Felix Garfunkel was born in Romania in 1931. He survived through two
concentration camps before moving to Ecuador, and eventually immigrating to the United States in 1958. Felix and his wife, Erika, moved to Dayton in 1965, where they raised their children David, Janice (of blessed memory) and Michael.
