William Robert Flavian Obituary
Flavian, William Robert


William Robert Flavian (Schlut), age 78, was a resident of Los Lunas, NM and previously of Farmington, NM, passed away on Monday, January 18th 2016. He was born September 16, 1937 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was the eldest son of Robert J. and Genevieve "Effie" Marie Schlut. Bill loved life, his family, his religion, classical music, Notre Dame football and golf. Anyone who Bill encountered in his life was better for the brief or extended time that Bill was in their life. He treated every human being with the same amount of respect, kindness, generosity, and genuine interest that truly made his impact on the life of others memorable. Bill will be missed, but all that knew him know that he lived a long life to the fullest on his terms, and there is no doubt that he is resting peacefully.

He was preceded in death by his parents. William is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Patricia (Sanchez) Flavian; children, Damian Flavian and his wife, Adriana of El Paso, TX, Dannette Burch of Santa Fe, Kevin Burch of Albuquerque, David Burch and his wife, Judy of Sidney Nebraska, and Carolyn Scott and her husband, John of Lucas Texas. Bill leaves behind 11 grandchildren, Eric and Doreen Burch, Davis Burch; Natalie, Jack, and Ryan Scott, Alek, Ryan and Drew Flavian; Patrick-Levario Cuen and Logan Cuen; brothers, Jim Schlut and his wife, Sandy, Robert Schlut and his wife, Mary, Michael Schlut; and several nieces and nephews from Colorado.
