He was educated at Salmo Secondary School and U.B.C., where he attained a B.A. During the last third of his life he became a Catholic, and his faith and his church were very important to him. He was a very shy, kind and loving man, beloved of all who knew him. He was a nature and animal lover, a patron of the arts, an avid reader and had a great appreciation for poetry, literature, fine art and classical music. Predeceased by his parents Viva and Frank Flood, he is survived by his dog Shadow, his brother Steve of Maple Bay, Vancouver Island, his sister Elspeth of Vancouver. He is also survived by nieces, nephews and cousins; and by many friends including his close friends Ron and Sara, Danielle and James. He will be much missed by them, his neighbours and by his church community.
