Age 29, of Joliet, IL suddenly passed away Tuesday September 24, 2019.  He was born August 4, 1990 to Angelina Gutierrez and the late Paul Palacios.  Felipe attended St. Joseph Grade School and Joliet Central High School.

Felipe will be remembered as a fiercely loyal friend who loved hanging out with family and friends.  He easily made his nieces and nephews laugh; they always looked up to Felipe.  He coached girls softball for the Spanish Center with his brother, umpired for Belmont Little League (and played there when he was younger), and worked in the construction trades.  A fan of the IKWF, Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Vikings, Felipe also enjoyed listening to country music and eating well.
