John Francis Flock

April 1, 1952 — January 10, 2023

John Francis Flock was born in Sleepy Eye, MN on April 1, 1952 to William and Wilhelmina (Schroepfer) Flock.  He grew up in Morgan and graduated from Morgan High School in 1970.  John served in the Army for 2 years and then made a career working as an area manager for Frontier Communications.  John married Mary Redmond in 1986 and moved their family to Milaca.

John was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  He served as an usher, helped with the election day dinner, served on the Knights of Columbus and helped deliver Meals on Wheels.  John was an active member of the American Legion, helped with Music in the Park and was a past member of the Chamber of Commerce. 

John enjoyed bowling, golfing, mowing the lawn, but his favorite pastimes were fishing and spending time with his family, especially the grandchildren.  John retired in 2007.  He enjoyed fishing on many of the area lakes with his fishing buddies.  You could always find John and Mary at any of the “grands” school functions and activities.  The family would go on an annual summer vacation with all of John’s siblings and their families.

John passed away on January 10, 2023 at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle, WA after a courageous battle with CMML Leukemia.
