“Well done, good and faithful servant!” Matthew 25:21
Felix (Opa) Lesauski went to be with his Lord and Savior and on to his eternal home, on June 17, 2019.
He was born in Lithuania on May 30, 1927 to Felix and Martha Lesauskis. His father was the mayor of Kaunas at the time. During WWII, Felix went through a very uncertain time in war-torn Europe. He escaped from a Russian war camp and reached Germany. While in Hamburg, Germany he was a police guard at an airport for the British. There he met the love of his life, Elisabeth (Liz).
In 1952, he had the opportunity to come to the USA to live with his aunt in Iowa. The following year, his fiancé, Elisabeth joined him and they were married there in 1953 and subsequently became United States citizens. Felix loved his adopted country with all his heart.
After receiving his Electrical Engineering degree, he opened FAL Electric Company in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 1958 and was in business until he moved to Flagstaff in 1980 where he opened All Phase Electric Company with his son Peter in 1981.
He is survived by his loving spouse, Liz; son Peter Lesauski (Ritamarie), daughters, Monika Comick (Mike), Nancy Haley (Dr. Mike), and Carmen Martinjako (Rusty); and grandchildren Andrew Comick, Emily Lesauski Kinney, Allison Comick, Jeremy Martinjako, Kathryn Lesauski, Noelle Martinjako, Pete Lesauski, and Keegan Martinjako; and 2 great grandchildren Brock Lesauski and Gunner Lesauski. He is also survived by one sister, Milda, and numerous nieces and nephews in Lithuania.
Felix was their devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. They loved their Opa and will miss him so much.
