Stuart Flome Obituary
Stuart Flome, age 75, of Atlanta, GA, died peacefully at Hospice Atlanta surrounded by his family on Tuesday, May 8th, after fighting a brave battle against metastatic prostate cancer. Born on January 24, 1943 in Queens, New York, to Albert and Beverly Flome, his fondest memories of growing up are playing stickball in Brooklyn and cheering for the New York Yankees, especially during the Mickey Mantle years. He played football, baseball, and basketball at Forest Hills High School. Upon graduating in 1961, Stuart served in the Air National Guard and was active during the Berlin Crisis. When he returned home from serving his country, he studied at the University of Vermont. Also, while in college, he had the honor of trying out for the Detroit Tigers as a pitcher. He earned a spot on their minor league team and fulfilled a childhood dream. After his baseball career ended, in 1968 Stuart moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he began his 50-year sales and managerial career in the garment hanger industry. That same year, he met and married Bonnie Nager. They had two children together, Jennifer and Jeffrey Flome, of Atlanta, GA. Stuart was an avid baseball and golf fan and player, hobbies he passed down to his son Jeffrey and grandsons Noah and Bryce. As well, music served as the soundtrack to his life, and whether at home or in the car, he always played Elvis, Buddy Holly, Rod Stewart, Leonard Cohen, and other legends. He passed on this appreciation of music and lyrics to his daughter, Jennifer. Stuart was also known for his impeccable style and was always dressed to the nines in his favorite designer, Ralph Lauren. The great joys of his life were his children and his grandchildren. Amongst all the titles Stuart held in his life, "Grandpa Stu" was his favorite one. Stuart is survived by his daughter Jennifer Simmons, her husband Warren, and her stepson, Bryce, of Atlanta, Georgia; his son Jeffrey Flome, his wife, Traci, and their children Noah, Jordi, and Izzy of Atlanta, Georgia; his siblings, Robert Flome and Barbara Flome of Apple Valley, California; dear relatives Bonnie Lass, Rob McLean, and Cindy Flome; as well as two nephews and three nieces. The family would like to thank the Visiting Angels organization and offer special thanks to caregivers, Nicole Harmon and Shawn Gilmore, for their compassion, friendship, and skilled assistance, as well as Hospice Atlanta and Weinstein Hospice for making Stuart's final days comfortable and peaceful. A funeral was held 4:00 PM at Arlington Memorial Cemetery, 201 Mount Vernon Hwy, Atlanta, GA 30328, on Thursday, May 10th, with Rabbi Joshua Heller officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Hospice Atlanta, Weinstein Hospice, and Congregation B'nai Torah are appreciated. Arrangements made by Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care 770-451-4999.
