New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - BUSINESS -

Don­ald Flumerfelt passed away un­ex­pect­edly on Jan­uary 9, 2019 in New Haven, CT. Don was born March 31, 1964 in Water­loo, On­tario, Canada. In 1966 he moved with his par­ents and sis­ter to Need­ham, MA where they be­came US cit­i­zens. Don was a grad­u­ate of Need­ham High School then re­ceived his Bach­e­lor’s De­gree in Busi­ness from Bryant Col­lege, Smith­field, RI. He al­ways had a love of any­thing with mo­tors and grow­ing up would spend his paper-route money and time buy­ing and sell­ing any­thing from bikes to boats in the “Want Ads” mag­a­zine. It only made sense that af­ter col­lege he went to work for 3M’s Au­to­mo­tive Divi­sion. He was based out of Bran­ford, CT and thrilled to live by the shore.

Don had an ad­ven­ture­some spirit with the de­sire to help make the world a bet­ter place. He felt so priv­i­leged to be able to serve as a Busi­ness Ad­vi­sor vol­un­teer in the Peace Corps in Yere­van, Ar­me­nia. When he re­turned to the USA he worked for the New Haven Park­ing Au­thor­ity as well as try­ing a num­ber of var­i­ous en­tre­pre­neur­ial pur­suits. He had a keen mind and was al­ways ea­ger to learn, the courage to try and to think out­side the box. Trin­ity Church in Bran­ford has been a con­stant in his life where he’s been a mem­ber and served over the years in the youth group and choir. He’s made dear friends there who have be­come a sec­ond fam­ily.

Don is sur­vived by his par­ents Leonard (Bud) and Viva (Scil­ley) Flumerfelt of Chelms­ford, MA and his sis­ter and brother-in-law, Jill and Paul Wieliczki of Taun­ton, MA as well as ex­tended fam­ily in On­tario, Canada. His cousin, Julie (Len­nox) Un­der­wood has been a con­stant source of en­cour­age­ment and sup­port to him in re­cent years. He leaves many dear friends and will be missed. Friends and rel­a­tives are kindly in­vited to a Cel­e­bra­tion of Don’s Life on Satur­day, Jan­uary 19, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Trin­ity Epis­co­pal Church On-the-Green, Bran­ford. There will be col­la­tion and a time for fel­low­ship in the church hall fol­low­ing the ser­vice. Don loved the color red so please feel free to wear some red. In lieu of flow­ers do­na­tions may be made to the char­ity of your choice. For di­rec­tions and on­line memo­rial see www.ws­clancy.com
