Farm Admins unable to access same features in Central Admin

I lead a team of three SharePoint 2013 Farm Admins, and on our Central Admin display is not appearing consistent to all of us.

Farm Admin #1 & #2 (Myself included) can see and access on Central Admin:
Application Management|Service Applications
1. Manage service applications
2. Configure service application associations
3. Manage services on server

However, Farm Admin #2 can only see:
1. Manage service applications
3. Manage services on server

The farm is setup as follows:

SharePoint 2013 with SP1 (recently installed)
Web & App: Win 2008 R2 SP1
SQL: 2012 SP1
All are x64 installs.

Just wondering if there are issues with user permissions within Central Admin, have not been able to find articles specifically on this topic.

Some features are hidden even to farm administrators unless they are a member of the local administrators (windows) group on the central admin server

Farm admin should have dbowner and securityadmin permission in SQL.
In SharePoint box permission assigned should be local admin group, domain admin group, WSS_ADMIN_WPG,IIS_WPG.

This solution was the item that addressed my Farm Admin's need.  We were able to run a checklist based on the provided instant comments and the referenced Technet link.  

Our DBA was able to work any necessary permissions issues on our farm, and the Farm Admin confirmed to day that we have a successful resolution.

Thank you.
