Robert David Flores, 72 of Stafford passed away at Mary Washington Hospital on Friday, May 7, 2021.

Aside from his family, Robert's greatest devotion was to the United States Marine Corps. He retired as a Master Gunnery Sergeant serving as a Combat Photographer and Digital Media Specialist for 30 years. After graduating high school, he reported to MCRD San Diego. After completing boot camp and Sea School, he reported to the USS Kearsarge (CVN-33) where he deployed to the Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam. Other overseas duties included Grenada, Okinawa and mainland Japan. His stateside duties included Camp Pendleton, served as a DINFOS instructor at Ft. Harrison, Indiana, and as an Audiovisual Chief at Quantico, VA but his favorite duty station was Camp H. M. Smith, Hawaii. He continued his love of photography and digital media to serve 20 years as a government employee at Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), as a Lead Multimedia Specialist.

He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Barbara; daughter, Lisa Clark, and husband Brad; son, Anthony Flores, and wife Erica; grandchildren Christian and Adam Clark, Iszabella and Ariyanna Flores; and brother Albert Flores and extended family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Louisa Flores, and a sister, Mary.
