Obituary for John Flavin

John  Flavin
John Edward Flavin died peacefully in Columbia, Missouri on July 13, 2018 at the age of 94. He was beloved by his family and friends. He lived a full and wonderful life.

He was born on Nov. 10, 1923 in Edwardsville, Illinois, but spent most of his life in St. Louis. After he enlisted in the army, John was commissioned in the Army Air Corps where he became a B-25 pilot. He flew many missions in the South Pacific and served in the Allied Occupation Force in Japan. He was awarded the Air Medal for his service. He married his high school sweetheart, Anne Crean, on April 26, 1944. Following the war, he became a manufacturer’s representative in Omaha, St. Louis and Memphis. He was an avid golfer and a beloved storyteller.

John is survived by his three daughters: Mary Anne Flavin (Karl Brandel) of Melbourne, Florida, Sally Phillips (Stephen) of Columbia, Missouri, and Bridget Ostrow (Louis) of Memphis, Tennessee. He is lovingly known as the Old Gray Wolf by his nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Anne, and his brothers Daniel and Paul Flavin.

Visitation will be Thursday, July 19 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Bopp Chapel. The funeral mass will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 20, at Our Lady of the Pillar, with interment immediately following at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.
