Jack Flanary, MD

Reno - On May 31, 2018, we lost Dr. Jack Flanary. Jack was kind and loving to his family and friends for many years. Jack was a highly intelligent man, graduating from high school at the age of 16. He was always reading in his spare time to gain knowledge in all areas of medicine and science. Jack was raised in West Virginia where he worked in the coal mines to pay his way through college (electrical engineer) and medical school. The best way to describe his outstanding life of achievement is to say he did it all well.

He was a coal miner, excellent pilot, Navy veteran (pilot), anesthesiologist, horseman, lover of all outdoor activities (hunting, fishing, skiing and trail riding).

Jack was predeceased by is wife of 59 years, Catherine and is survived by his brother Jeff and his wife Jo.

There will be no services. Jack would want you to think of him soaring through the Nevada skies in his Citabria aerobatic plane and he and Catherine riding through the Nevada mountain ranges on their horses with their pack horses trailing behind them.

I just found out that Uncle Jack passed and am still in shock, the last time we spoke he was really looking forward to spending time with his puppy. I will miss him. Patricia

Jack and Katherine were long time friends of my family, the Prescott's which started with my mother and father, Bill and Gloria, during our time in Fallon at NAS Fallon in the late 1950's. My father, also a physician, learned and shared a lot of outdoor experiences with Jack. My brother, also named Jack, has maintained an ongoing relationship with Jack Flanary for years keeping the rest of our family up to date on his wellbeing. I know he loved Katherine dearly and is back with his sweetheart. Happy trails indeed Jack!
