Our deepest sympathies go to Melissa Peters on the recent passing of her grandfather, Charles Flint.

Charles “Chick” Ray Flint of Deer Park, Texas passed away at the age of 87 years old on March 13. He was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on June 8, 1931 to Robert L Flint and Janie L Wilcox Flint.

Chick served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1953 – 1955. He attended East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas where he completed his BBA in 1955. He was employed by Texaco Oil Company from 1955 – 1972 when he accepted a position at San Jacinto College as Assistant Comptroller until 1975. He continued to follow his dream by completing his Master’s Degree in Education from Sam Houston State University. This opened the door to his true calling to be a professor of Business Administration and chairman of his department at San Jacinto College until his retirement in 1994.

Chick is survived by his wife of 64 years, Peggy Shepherd Flint; daughters Nancy Cathey and husband David, Julia Golden, Amy Peters and husband Mike; grandchildren Alana Munoz and husband Greg, Michael Golden and wife Brittany, Travis Pennington and wife Julie, Felicia Golden, Liana Golden, Justin Peters and Melissa Peters.

In lieu of flowers the family asks donations to be made to the First Baptist Church Deer Park debt reduction. Please click here to view the obituary.
