Carl Clifford Flink Senior took his last breath on September 10 th and is now reading books, watching baseball games, and gardening in heaven. We, the family, are grateful for the assistance of Inspiration Hospice, various home help agencies and the Ashford Assisted Living for helping Carl find comfort and fulfillment in his final weeks.
Carl was born in Little Girl’s Point Michigan to Carl Henry and Agnes Flink many years ago. He was the older brother of Alice and Lucy. Carl attended Luther L Wright High School and subsequently Michigan State University graduating with a degree in engineering. In 1975, he married Susana Bertone and had 2 children: Carl Junior and Susie.
Carl worked for a variety of companies during his professional career focusing on metallurgical and reliability engineering. He preferred the adventure and excitement of working short contracts and exploring the United States finding new jobs. In his later years, he enjoyed finding treasures at the local secondhand stores and regular trips to the public library. He loved reading, history and rocks and gems.
He is preceded in death by his parents and sister Alice. He is survived by his wife, children, daughter in law Debbie, niece Julie and sister Lucy. In leu of flowers, please promote reading: pick up a book to read, volunteer in a literacy program or make a donation to a public library.
