Charles “Chick” Ray Flint June 8, 1931 - March 13, 2019

Charles “Chick” Ray Flint of Deer Park, Texas passed away at the age of 87 years old on March 13, 2019. He was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on June 8, 1931 to Robert L Flint and Janie L Wilcox Flint. Chick was a graduate of London High School in New London, Texas in 1949 where he met his future wife, Peggy Shepherd.

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 was a longtime member of First Baptist Church Deer Park where he served as a faithful deacon, teacher of 5th grade boys and an enthusiastic greeter on Sunday mornings. Upon retirement, Chick enjoyed traveling with wife, Peggy. His greatest joy was spending time with family, whether eating out, playing games or family vacations. Chick was an encourager to all and the #1 cheerleader of his daughters and grandchildren. He took joy in serving others with his time and generosity. He was known by many as a true man of God and by his infectious laugh.

Chick was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Janie Flint, beloved brother Ed Flint and infant brother Harold Flint. He 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.

Charles was one of the nicest men I have ever met. I was his student and co-worker and he was a very impressive instructor how he made coming to class fun and taught me a lot! He loved teaching and it was an inspiration to see him teach. Sorry he is gone, I will miss him and his easy smile!

Chick was a very good friend and colleague. He always had a smile on his face, and he was a very talented professor. His students always appreciated his pleasant demeanor and fabulous personality. I always loved seeing him at our annual retirement reunions. I never saw him in a bad mood; his happiness always seemed to make everyone else feel good. I will definitely miss his radiating smile.

Chick Flint was my Business professor at San Jacinto College. In later years, I also attended First Baptist, Deer Park. What a genuine caring gentleman. God shared him with us for a good number of years before calling him to his eternal home. What a blessing he was to all who knew him.
