My mother, Phyllis Hoffman, asked me to send her condolences to the family and especially Jean. Jean and Flee are special friends from younger days and very fondly remembered -- growing up in Lake Worth from Junior High on through weddings My father, now deceased, also spoke to me of his close friends to include Flee. Please know you are in my mother's thoughts and memories.

I KNOW I speak for all the people that "Flee" touched in his tire business career when I say that he was a man of integrity,of honor, his word was his bond.
Meeting him while he was with Banner Tire in the early seventies, all the way to his retirement years later, it was a pleasure to talk with him.Many tire dealers, here and through out the state share my feelings.
"El Pulgo", rest in peace, my friend.

It's been 12 years since I lost my Dad and everytime I go to the lake, I wish he were there to share it with me. Sorry for your loss.

Superman has passed and I will never be the same.

The man I knew as Dad.

You were the head of this family, you were its rock and its foundation.
The man who taught me love, loyalty and the importance of family.

You made me laugh.
You made me cry.
I always knew you were there for me whenever I needed you.
You are my strength and yeah, you are my sarcasm too..:)

And I can hear you now:
"Life is not fair - pull yourself by your bootstraps and move on"

I will Dad.
Just not yet.

I will always remember Flee being filled with laughter and smiles. He is all healed now. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. I am so glad I got to see Tom and Judy recently.
Hugs to the whole Fleenor family.

To the man who taught me so much, guided me on the right path and always asked me the hard questions that I didn't want to answer: I love you. Your influence will stay with me until I pass on and your love will endure through the lives of my children.
