He was united in Holy Matrimony to the former Cora L. Moore on January 10, 1962.  To their union was born one cherished daughter, Valeria.

Brother Elix loved farming. He spent some time working at the Peanut Mills in Colquitt and Bainbridge, Georgia, Miller County Hospital, and the Miller County Road Department from which he retired.
