Charles Blake Flynn, 68, of North Richland Hills, TX, passed away Tuesday, July 20, 2021 in North Richland Hills, TX. Blake was born November 1, 1952 in Birmingham, AL to Charles H. Flynn and Jeannine DeFrieze. Blake was a high school phenom in track and sporting events; so much so that he was offered a football scholarship to Northwest State University. He owned his own tree service that was a successful and well-known business. Blake had integrity and he stood by his word. Blake was a friend to everyone, never met a stranger and could always make someone’s day brighter. He genuinely made everyone feel wonderful. He loved spending time with his family. Blake loved his sons immensely; they meant the world to him. Blake loved horses and riding them was his greatest pleasure. A cowboy true to heart with the cowboy spirit he blazed a trail through life and most of his career. True to the adage, “work hard,” “play hard,” and “give hard,” Blake lived his life with meaning. When Blake gave you his time, he gave a portion of himself he could never get back. As a cowboy, he never looked down on anyone, but he lifted their spirits up with his genuine cowboy way. Blake will be missed and remembered by many with great love and memories. This Cowboy took his last ride home. Blake is survived by his sons, Aaron Blake Flynn and wife Jocelyn of Oro Valley, AZ and Cody Miles Flynn and wife Kaitlin of Aurora, CO; brother, Brandon Flynn and wife Sandy of Whitesboro, TX; sister, Rory Flynn Adams and husband Jim of Keithville, LA; nieces, Heather Revette and husband Kevin of Plano, TX, Brandi Carney and husband Brady of Muenster, TX and Lindsey Grigsby and husband Rob of Denton, TX; many extended family; and close friends, Larry Wells and Jim Rominger.
