Carl W. “Bud” Flint, a beloved member of the community, died March 31st, 2020 at his home as he wished at the age of 97 with family at his side.

Born and raised in Acton, MA, he also lived in Concord, Carver and Littleton, MA. He served proudly in the US Coast Guard during WWII. A career salesman prior to his retirement, Bud worked for companies including Wickes Lumber Company and Electrolux vacuum cleaners. He had a love for people, dancing, cowboy boots, eating out, attending church and mocha frappes. He was beloved by his church family at Faith Evangelical Church in Acton, with many affectionately referring to him as “Grampa.” He was very proud to be named as an honorary fire fighter with the Littleton Fire Department.

Bud was predeceased by his parents, Carl C. and Grace S. (Emery) Flint; wife Vera (Cunningham) Flint who died in 1968; wife Helen (MacDonald) Flint who passed away in 2001; his beloved great-grandson Andrew Burgher who died in 2015, and his sisters Dorothy Flint and Ruth Akers.

He is survived by his sons: David Flint (Lois) of Merrimack, NH, Dana Flint, David Hanson (Linda) of Nottingham, NH and Peter Hanson (Karen) of Concord, MA. He was the proud grandfather of David Flint (Alison) of Merrimack, NH, Aaron Flint (Kim) of Goffstown, NH, Erika (Hanson) Burgher (Dan) of Bow, NH, Melissa (Hanson) Gorgenyi (Andre’) of Chelmsford, MA, Amanda Hanson of Lee, NH (Scott Grumbling); and loving great-grandfather of Paige and Tate Flint, Joshua and Sarah Burgher, Lewis, Jocelyn and Jacob Gorgenyi, and Bridget Grumbling.

He is also survived by many generous and faithful friends.

The family wishes to convey their gratitude to the men and women of the Littleton Fire Department as well as Patricia (Patty) and Wesley (Chuck) Wilkey for their compassionate care during Bud’s prolonged illness.

Due to the Covid19 pandemic a memorial service will be planned for later in the year. Bring along your favorite “Budism” to share.

During this unique time please consider donations in his memory to the Salvation Army, 25 Shawmut Road, Canton, MA 02021 or Joni and Friends, PO Box 3333 Agora Hills, CA 91376-3333.

It is with fond memories of Bud Flint that the Belchers wish his family our sincere sympathies on Bud's passing at age 97. He lived a full life and is remembered as someone who was full of life. As extended Flint family members, Bob (whose mother was Doris Flint of Wellfleet) & Betty Belcher of Ipswich kept in contact with Bud via visits and phone calls over the years. As their eldest daughter, I had the sad duty of informing Bud of Betty's (2014) and Bob's (2015) passing which invariably led to the occasional "call out of the blue" from Bud "just keeping in touch" with very entertaining stories to share. He was always "a character", which I remember from childhood visits, and I was reminded of that during our renewed conversations. May the happy memories of Bud provide solace as well as a bit of laughter during this time of grief.
