Michael Ray Flint


Michael Flint was a quiet, thoughtful and respectful person, with extraordinary intellectual capability and an insatiable curiosity about how to improve, by simplification, the application of technology. He dismissed recognition. He never gave an unconsidered answer to a question. He was one of the most intelligent and well-studied people around, and one of the very few that would answer, simply, “I don’t know,” when it was the appropriate answer. He took honesty and integrity to levels rarely seen anymore. He was selfless and rare, and everyone that knew him appreciated those characteristics.

With all of his accomplishments, he put together a one paragraph resume in 1981, followed in 2012 in ”Who’s Who's” 16th Edition, under their category of “Executive of the Year in Aviation Electronics Engineering,” under the subject of “Expanded Biography.” He inserted one line that simply stated: “Mr. Flint has been with the company since 2004.”

He enjoyed adventures, and was always ready for the next one. Mike believed that religion was about a relationship, and he had one.

Enjoy the ride, Mike, it will satisfy the ultimate human curiosity.

Mike was preceded in death by his mother, father and his sister, Sharon Ann (Flint) Nelson. He is survived by three brothers: Gary Lynn Flint of Dumas, Randy Lee Flint of Defiance, Ohio, and Troy Curtis Flint of Paulding Co. Ohio, and cousins: Connie Jean (Stuart) Wilson, Tulsa, Okla.; Robert Prentice Wilson, Illinois; Janet Louise (Stuart) Penn, Daniel Owen Stuart, Thomas Alan Stuart, Amy Elizabeth Stuart, and Carrie Dawn (Wilson) Perron,  Matthew Owen Stuart; nieces and nephews: Gregory Flint, Christine Garza (Flint), Melissa Haba (Flint), Felicia Amber Flint, Kayla Diane Flint, Shannon Alexander, Chrystal Lane, Bradley James Nelson, Leslie Jane Nelson, Jeffrey David Penn, and Brian David Penn.

Mike specified cremation, with his ashes to be spread in the mountains of Colorado. A memorial get-together for family and friends will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 4 p.m. at the Cool City Avionics office at 6300 Columbia St., Mineral Wells Municipal Airport.
