William “Brian” Flinchum, 50, of Thomasville, went to his Heavenly Home Tuesday April 6, 2021.
He was born on May 26, 1970 in Guilford County, the youngest of three children of Russell and Sonja Flinchum. He was raised in Jamestown and graduated from Ragsdale High in 1988, and was employed as Human Resources Manager at Tarheel Paper and Supply Co, where he has worked for 30 years. Brian loved to fish at the Outer Banks, was an avid deer hunter and enjoyed traveling; especially going on cruises and to the beach with his wife, Sandra. His favorite college basketball team was North Carolina Tarheels; but his true love and passion was spending time with his family; “his children and grandchildren were his pride and joy”. He was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, papaw, and friend to all that knew him, and will be dearly missed.
He is survived by his wife of 19 years; Sandra Coltrane Flinchum; his son, David Flinchum and wife Sahray of Kernersville; his daughter Kaylin Franco and husband Ramiro of High Point. He is also survived by four grandchildren: Roselyn Franco, Leslie Franco, Elena Dhondt and Ava Flinchum; his parents Russell and Sonja Flinchum of Greensboro; his sisters, Debbie Swaim and her husband Ed and Susan Jones and several nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Brian’s life will be held on Sunday afternoon, at 3 pm., in the chapel of Cumby Family Funeral Service in Archdale, with Pastor Jonathan Robbins officiating. His family will receive friends Sunday, from 1:00 until 2:45 p.m., at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers memorials in Brian’s memory may be made to the American Heart Association, 7029, Albert Pick Road, Suite 200, Greensboro, NC 27409
