Glenn Patrick Flavin, Sr., 93, a resident at Brookdale Staunton and formerly of Churchville, left this world behind to gain his entrance into the kingdom of Heaven on Sunday, June 30, 2024.

He was born on August 13, 1930, in Augusta County to his late, proud parents, Patrick Henry, Sr. and Sallie Ellen Burgess Flavin.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his first wife, June Joyce Flavin; his second wife, June B. Flavin; his daughter, Debra Ann Flavin; his son, Glenn Patrick Flavin, Jr.; and his five brothers, John Henry, Eugene Franklin, Paul Clifford, James Mitchell, and Allen Burgess Flavin.

He is survived by three daughters, a son, and their families: Cathy (Pat) Shipe, Chris (Alisa) Culpen, Greg (Crystal) Culpen, Lori Shipe (Kevin) Hazlett, and Ryan Shipe; Donna (Mike) Calhoun, Skyler (Emily) Calhoun, Tera Calhoun, Jared Calhoun, and Leah Calhoun; Dee (Mark) Hanger, Kate (Tom) Hale, John (Allison) Hanger, and Lance (Annie) Hanger; and Anthony Scott Flavin, Taylor Rose, Hannah Flavin, and Vaughn Flavin. He is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Cathy Flavin; a grandson, Michael Ralston; his sister, Katherine F. Adams; a number of great and great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Flavin was employed for many years at Westinghouse, along with three of his brothers. His last place of employment was with the Staunton Correctional Center where he was greatly respected by the inmates because of his respect for them. He was an active member of Calvary Baptist Church in Staunton where he had served as a trustee, deacon, Sunday School teacher. He also filled the important role as a spiritual "father" to many young people. He played softball and coached Babe Ruth baseball. His favorite team was the New York Yankees. He was also an avid golfer and played often with his buddies, John Hartless, Johnnie Bishop, and Graham Simmons. He loved to hunt with Reverend Willard Goforth and Elwood Meyerhoeffer, trap, and hunt for ginseng with his son-in-law, Mark Hanger.

He served with honor in both the United States Navy and Air Force, before retiring as a Staff Sergeant with the United States Army National Guard. His dedication to his country and his fellow servicemen was truly commendable.
