Obituary of Billy E. Flowers
Billy Flowers, the loving and compassionate man, that shown brightly towards his family and friends can’t be expressed in simple words. His continuous compassion for others took precedence over his own personal needs; lending an open ear or helping someone along the way. He spoke from the heart and his actions were parallel.
Billy Flowers born December 11, 1950, departed this life peacefully on December 8, 2022. He was born in Blakey Georgia to Aaron Flowers and Nadine Flowers-Doctor. Upon Graduation from Barker Central School, he enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and served during the Vietnam War.
In his life time he worked at Simon Steele until closure, then retired after 30 plus years as Plant Supervisor at Mayor Brothers in Appleton, NY. After his retirement, he began serving as a Foster Grandfather through Hanci Agency. “Grandpa Bill” was the term of endearment at Charles Upson Elementary School with cooperating teacher Mr. Couterier. Here is where he continued impacting young lives and families.
Billy first began his faith walk as a Deacon of the House of God Church in Niagara Falls, under the late Pastor Mable Elias. When the doors of this church closed, he continued to seek spiritual covering and became a member of Sanctuary Temple COGIC under the leadership of the late Lincoln Williams, which now has been birthed to Later Rain Cathedral, under the leadership of the late Pastor, Donald Chisholm and an honorary member of Ephesus Cathedral Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Jeff and the late Deborah Carter and Assistant Pastor Shannon Carter.
