William Earl Flood, nicknamed "Ricky" by all that knew him, passed away at his home on Friday, December 24, at the age of 67.
William Earl Flood was born in Greenville, NC, to Mother Edna Tyson, who preceded him in life. William worked for the Department of Transportation (DOT) until retirement in 2008 to start private truck driving. He was an active member of Philippi Church of Christ in Greenville, NC, where he volunteered with many services for the church.
William lived a simple life but was known for his love of football (Washington Redskins"). And his love of Oreo cookies with a slice of cheese. And the love of Philippi Church Community and friends and the church van.
He was preceded in death by his daughter Chaka Barnhill and mother, Edna Tyson, Annie, Flood grandmother, grandson Cody Barnhill. He leaves us to cherish his daughter Yvette Bowen and son-in-law Derick Bowen, four grandchildren, Imani Barnhill, Iaeshia Mercer, Ianna Mercer, India Barnhill. Two great-grandchildren, Da'Marrion Cotton and Da' Cari Cotton. His Aunts Annie Trimble, Mary Alice Lewis, Frances Flood, Ernestine King, and Cousin/Sister Alfrances Reese.
A golden heart stopped beating, Hardworking hands at rest, it broke our hearts to see you go, God only takes the best. They say that memories are golden, well maybe that is true, but we never wanted memories, we only wanted you. Your life was love and labor, your love for your family true, you did your best for all of us, we will always remember you.
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according to unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: My sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was sharpened in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me know wisdom.
The family of William Earl Flood acknowledges with the utmost appreciation, the warm-hearted messages, floral tributes, and other gestures of kindness and love during this time of bereavement. May God bless you all and keep you well.
Mr. William Earl Flood
