Flannick, John A. “Jack”

A loving son to George and Emily Flannick – John “Jack” Flannick was Born to Eternal Life on Tuesday, December 20, 2022 at the age of 84.  Jack was husband to the late Mary Flannick (Maher) and was a loving father to:  Amanda (Chris) Maynard, Aimee (Dave) Gruber, George (Anneke).  The last 25 years, Jack shared his life and was the beloved husband to Carol Flannick (Smitham) and an amazing “second father” to Suzanne (Ken) Ginter.  He was blessed with six beautiful grandchildren:  Megan, Mary, Logan, Emily Collins, Johnny, and Georgie.  He also held the title of “Grandpa Jack” to two great grandchildren – Jackson “JJ” and Cole.

Jack was brother of Beverly (Warren) Holloway, brother-in-law of Pat (Katie) Maher, and Tom Maher. He was cousin of Gerard Flannick, John Gemeinhardt, and Ann (Gene) Stefaniak and their incredible family.

Jack was preceded in death by his sister Diane (the late – Jim) Padlock and his brother Patrick (Judith).

Jack is survived by many nieces, nephews, and close friends in both Milwaukee and Seattle, Washington.

Jack was a proud alumni of Don Bosco High School where he earned a football scholarship.  He played semi-professional football with the Racine Raiders and served in the United States Army and Army Military Reserve.

Jack was employed at We Energies for 31 years and was a Life Time member of the Builders Association of Wisconsin.  After retiring from We Energies, he and Carol moved to Seattle where Jack was employed for 11 years with Puget Sound Energy.  Jack was a proud board member of the Snoqualmie Valley Eagle’s Club, member of the Snoqualmie Valley Moose Lodge 1666, and a proud choir member at St. Joseph’s in Issaquah, WA.  Their time in Seattle was filled with travels, adventures and the making of dear friends that they still hold today.

After retiring from Puget Sound, Jack and Carol returned to their home in Greendale.  They spent their time as active members of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, traveling and their passion of entertaining family and friends.

The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to family, friends and very special neighbors who lent their assistance to Jack and Carol over the last several years.  Your kindness, compassion and friendship meant so very much to them and their immediate family.

Jack was a truly wonderful, kind, generous and thoughtful man who loved life to the fullest.  His passing has left a tremendous void to many.  He was also a man of great faith.  Knowing he is in the arms of the Lord – and with those dear to him who preceded him in passing – gives his family comfort at this time of sorrow.

Jack never ended a call or ended a visit without telling those he loved, “God Bless You.”  And now we say to you, Jack – “Until we meet again – God Bless You!”

Contributions may be made to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (8500 W. Cold Spring Road, Greenfield, WI 53228) for masses in memory of Jack.

Visitation, to be held on Wednesday, December 28th, 2022 at ST. JOHN THE EVANGLIST CATHOLIC CHURCH, 8500 W. Coldspring Rd. from 10-10:45am with the Mass of Christian Burial at 11am.

    We do have some great memories of Uncle Jack. He really seemed to enjoy life, and when he laughed it was a big laugh that would make you feel at ease – and make you laugh as well! He would tackle projects with intensity and humor, often giving you a hard time just to make you smile. He will be dearly missed. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

    Irene and I offer our prayers for the entire family of Uncle Jack. He will be dearly missed. He was a true gentleman with a no-nonsense attitude in all he encountered. I recall his great laugh during many memories during my childhood and adult years, on cross-country road trips in a black roadster with red interior, “helping” in his bar, and staying overnight at Jack and Mary’s home. He left no doubt through his words and actions, that immediate and extended family were very important in his life. I cherish being his nephew and all the conversations we had during his lifetime, and know that his memory will continue to follow me for the rest of mine.

    His loving nephew,
    Mike Maher

    My Dad,

    I have so many wonderful memories from Christmas Eve, Birthday Parties, Family Reunions, Watching black and white movies with him, and there are so many more memories..:
    I remember trips to Wisconsin Dells with My Mom and My Dad when there was only a few water slides, trips up north to Crandon, WI and lots of dinners where you always had to “try” the food (and still to this day I will not eat eggs even though I like Eggs Benedict) and I always loved when the day ended with custard and so did my Dad!!!
    Trips to the grocery store was a true experience with stops at several stores and Dad checking every pay phone to see what coins he could find to add to his collection.
    To homemade pizza, tacos or tenderloin my Dad could cook it all!!!
    My Dad knew someone every where we went and he was always introducing us.
    My Dad was always there to help with school projects (I think he had more fun doing the projects than we did) and watching us at school events.
    My Dad was always there to teach kindness, forgiveness, patients, and love.
    My Dad always loved listening to me talk about my job and I know most of all he was very proud of me.
    My Dad was truly an OUTSTANDING Man and will be missed by all.
    Last but not least my Dad ended every visit and phone conversation (there was many of those) with Love You ❤️ and God Bless You….
    So in honor of my Dad Love ❤️ You and God Bless You….

    Love, Amanda Kay
    I will miss you…
