Heartfelt condolences to the Flohr family from Oregon. I have very pleasant memories of Mr. and Mrs. Flohr hosting the family and allowing the grands and great-grands to play in their pool. I hope that the days and months to come will bring you peace and comfort.

Carl was one of the last true patriarchs of the Flohr Family Reunions. He and his Family rarely missed an event and embedded themselves into all the Family activities, including compilation and publication of the comprehensive Flohr Family history and book; promoting and actively participating in the 50th, 75th & 90th reunions; and, generously supporting the historical Family grave site restorations. Carl will be missed greatly and we pray for Christ's watchful hand on his Family at this time of loss. Danny & Sharon Blickenstaff

Our sympathy to Arlene and the family. Carl was an important part of the William Flohr family reunion. Mom (Dora) and Dad (Sparky) always enjoyed the times when you all had the opportunity to visit. May God's compassion be your comfort. David and Marcia Fisher
