Felton's passion for cooking began at a young age. After graduating from Charlton-Pollard High School in Beaumont, Texas, he enlisted in the United States Army where he served proudly. Felton later embarked on a career as a cook, working at various restaurants throughout his life. His culinary skills were superb and he enjoyed making new delicious creations.

Beyond his culinary talents, Felton was known for his funny personality. He had a gift for making people laugh and lighting up any room he entered. His humor brought joy to the lives of those around him.

In addition to his love for cooking he had a deep love for music. He found solace in playing the piano, trumpet, and trombone. His dedication to music allowed him to express himself creatively and provided him with a sense of fulfillment.
