Remembering John Flicker ’85

January 22, 2013

Cole Brown relates: “I attended a wonderful memorial service for our departed friend, John Flicker. It was graciously hosted by my brother Gregory ’85 and attended by a number of our close friends. A special thanks as well to John Knight ’83 for his assistance and support.

We were all saddened by this tragedy and will always remember “Flickadoo” and what a great friend and person he was. Flicker always brought a smile to my face and as much crazy fun as we had over the last 30 years, it pains me to realize he’s gone. I can still visualize one of the best summers of my life in 1985 with Gregory, Flicker, and Brad O’Sullivan ’85. We did more in Europe that summer than a bunch of blokes on V-E day. I know we all ended up with our still present “it’s on thin skin it will fade” ankle tattoos from Juan-les-pins, France. Of course John had the best one.

We all know he will be sorely missed and we are all that much emptier without him. I can only hope we will not have an opportunity to repeat this for many years to come.

Be worthy brothers.”
