Charles “Chuck” Flagg, born March 15, 1940 of Middletown DE, passed away on July 7, 2012. Chuck left us with these thoughts. “I spent my life married to the woman of my dreams and my one true love Doris. We raised two wonderful daughters, Carrie and Linda and together we all shared a life on the road, on the farm and in Doris’s garden, always with each other’s constant love and affection. I am, and my whole life was always, proud of my wonderful daughters and leave them with the comfort of knowing that I am back in the arms of my one true love. I am equally proud of all my grandchildren for the love and joy they brought to my life. First my granddaughter Hilary with her warm smile, then Chuckie and Louie who have grown to be fine young men in their own rights, dedicated to helping others through their efforts as volunteer firemen in Felton, DE. My grandson Robert has a bright future in baseball after little league and Jack always brings a smile to my face.”
Chuck spent three decades dedicated to law enforcement. First as a probation officer in Globe, AZ and eventually moving east with the National Security Administration and then joining the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He finished his distinguished career with the FBI as the Agent in Charge of Delaware. Chuck was passionate about woodworking and “things and stuff were built or fixed” at Chuck’s Shop for many years. After retirement he also built several new homes with his close friend, Paul Bell.
He is also survived by his brother, Arthur of Phoenix, AZ; sister, Mary of Sequim, WA; his nephews, Andrew and David and his niece, Sydney. He was predeceased by his older brother William; mother, Clara E. (Goff), and his father, Edward C. Flagg.
