John Michael Flack of Grantsville, Utah passed away peacefully with family by his side on August 3, 2019. John was born in American Fork, Utah on May 7, 1947 to George and Evada Flack as the third of five children.
John spent his career working at the Tooele Army Depot where he worked in logistics as a transportation driver and poker player. After his retirement from civil service he worked as a care giver at a nursing home as well as a donut maker, where he enjoyed eating his mistakes. John was an avid sports fan, growing up as a die-hard Yankees and Rockies fan that despised the Red Sox. He loved the Utah Jazz and never missed a game.
His dream was to be a World Series of Poker Champion, which he was convinced he would win if given the opportunity.
John’s real passion was spending time with his sons and grandchildren, especially when they were fishing. He loved watching his sons and grandchildren play sports and enjoyed collecting sports cards with them.
He is survived by his sons Bart (Janell), Derek (Danielle), Jared (Courtney), his five grandchildren, step son Robert (Lea Ann), and brothers DeLyle (Janice) and Terry (Marlane). John is preceded in death by his parents and sisters Chelda Lunt and Judy Neff.
