Material for Paul H. Flint’s Obituary:  The information below (in quotes} was obtained from the website, dated July 21, 2013. 

“Paul Harry Flint, 70, of Fredericksburg passed away suddenly at INOVA Fairfax Hospital of an undiagnosed case of lung cancer on Tuesday, July 9, 2013, surrounded by family and friends.”

“He was a U.S. Navy veteran from 1964-1967, where he was a liaison officer with the U.S. Marine Corps.  He trained in ship operations, communications, naval gunfire control, forward air control and military parachuting. He earned an MBA from the U.Va. School of business, Charlottesville, and a J.D. from Franklin Pierce Law Center, Concord, N.H (now the University Of New Hampshire Law School).  He was a senior financial analyst with Doubleday and Co. Publishing from 1969-1972.  From 1974-1979, Paul was co-founder, co-owner and vice president of the Moseley Flint Schools of Real Estate from1982-1984.  He served as special assistant to the commissioner of Public Buildings Serve, U.S. General Services Administration, Washington, DC.  From 1986-2005 Paul was a corporate attorney with the Nature Conservancy in Arlington, the largest private environmental organization in the world.”

“Paul is a co-author of Good Dirt (Globe Pequod, 1988), Pit Bull (Harper Collins, 1988) and Two Coots in a Canoe (Globe Pequod, 2009).  An accomplished guitar player, he loved his Gibson Les Paul.”

“Paul is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Susan Lind Flint; their four cats, Stonewall, Blackberry, Iris, and Scruffy; and sister-in-law Barbara Lind Borkowski and husband Edward.”

Paul attended Amherst College, and received his B.A. in 1963.  While at Amherst he was a member of Chi Phi. He spent much of his time around “the Phi” in the “game room” and near the TV.  Paul had a brilliant analytic mind, but had a preference for applying it to bridge, poker, and pitch, rather than to his academic studies. His droll and biting sense of humor could keep us in stitches when he was in a story-telling mood.  He is remembered with great fondness by those who knew him at Amherst.
