Alumni Obituary – Charles “Chuck” Flowers

Charles FlowersDavison, Michigan – The Flowers family is celebrating the life, and grieving the loss, of their family patriarch, Charles (Chuck) Flowers (CC ’64).

Chuck was born on October 5, 1944, in Black Earth, Wisconsin, son of the late Priar Merrill and Genevieve (Peckham) Flowers. He was an inspiration to all who knew him and was known for his smile, warmth, love, kindness, and genuine care for everyone he came into contact with.

Chuck taught multiple grades in Davison Community Schools for 41 years, from 1966-2007, and impacted the lives of countless students and their families. His innovative methods of teaching live on today in the memories of his students, many of whom followed his example and became teachers themselves.

Chuck used his teaching gifts for decades at his beloved churches, Davison Free Methodist Church and Wildwind Community Church, where he mentored and led small groups and programs for young teenagers. Chuck loved camping, dining with friends, spending time with family, and every single opportunity he ever had to talk with others.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 55 years, Nina (Hibdon) Flowers; sons, David (Christy) Flowers, Dan (Holly) Flowers; grandchildren, Brittany (Kevin) LaRocque, Kyra (Elijah) Bodey, Anna Flowers, Andy Flowers, Jon Flowers, and Mary Flowers; great-grandchild, Amelia LaRocque; siblings, Bob (Turkan) Flowers, Dick (Karen) Flowers, Jim (Jo) Flowers and Ken (Pam) Flowers.

Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service was held at 11 AM Saturday, May 22, 2021, at Davison Free Methodist Church, 502 Church Street, Davison; Pastor John Vannest officiating. Visitation took place from 9 AM until the time of Service on Saturday at the church.
