Monument to Félix Rodríguez de la Fuenta

All of us living in Spain in the 70s know who Felix Fodriguez de la Fuente is. We all cried when he died and sang My Friend Felix with Anna and Enrique. Dr. Rodriguez de la Fuente died in Alaska on March 14, 1980 while filming a documentary on the sled race of the Iditarod. He and two companions were on a plane when it crashed and killed everyone, including the pilot. In Anchorage there is a monument that was brought from Santiago de Compostela. It is a little known monument because most Americans do not know who he was, but the few Spanish who live here sometimes go to visit.
