William W. Flint, 70, of Concord, passed away Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, after a lengthy battle with multiple health issues.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was born in Concord and was the eldest son of George and Ruth (Jenney) Flint of Boscawen. He graduated from Penacook High School in 1961 and entered the U.S. Air Force becoming a jet engine mechanic. Upon discharge, he pursued a career in auto mechanics. He retired from the City of Concord in 2004 after 27 years of service. He loved going to cruise nights to see the old cars, building remote control vehicles, weekends at the lake camping and waterskiing, Skipbo tournaments and hanging out with friends telling stories and reminiscing about the adventures of the old days.
He was a ski instructor at the Highlands Ski area in Tilton for several years. At age 37, he developed a love of the martial arts and was an instructor for almost 20 years. He was a Master 5th degree Black Belt in Shaolin Chuan Fa. Always known for his sense of humor, he could easily befriend anyone and talk their ear off for hours.
He is survived by his wife of almost 41 years, Peg (Margaret Hoyt) Flint; son, Gregory Taylor of Aurora, Colo.; brother-in-law, David Hoyt Jr. and wife, Martha, of New Hampton; sister-in-laws, Gail Gordon and husband, Gary, of Bow, Liane Hoyt and companion, Terry Geddis, of Canterbury and Rita Saltmarsh and husband, Morgan, of Loudon; nieces, Anna Flint and fiancé, Dave Conlon, of Aurora, Colo., Brenda Coffey and husband, Steve, of Jabez, Ky., Ashley Gordon of Bow and Rene Cullen and husband, Ben, of Concord; nephews, David Hoyt and wife, Amanda, of Northfield, Michael Saltmarsh of Loudon and Jeffrey Gordon of Atlanta, Ga.; great-nephews, Kaleb and Gunnar Cullen of Concord and Christopher and Robert Coffey of Kentucky; and great-niece Ashley Coffey of Kentucky.
