Austin Flook Obituary – Austin Alexander Flook passed away January 8, 2022, at Meritus Medical Center after a brief illness. He was preceded by his wife of 62 years, Joanne McGraw Flook in 2016. Austin was born June 18, 1932, the son of John Jacob Flook and Inez Eudora Alexander of Boonsboro Maryland. He was a lifelong farmer, had been a member of the Boonsboro Fire Company, Boonsboro Historical Society, a lifetime member of the McClellan Gun Club as well as served with several other civic organizations.
He had been involved with a variety of business ventures including the former Boonsboro livestock auction and a long time part of J.G. Cochran Auctioneers, where he enjoyed spending time in conversations with many who attended the auctions. He also enjoyed collecting antiques throughout the years with Joanne as well.
The family farms were his pride and joy and he was most proud of their history and being able to place them into preservation and conservation programs, but still being able to make them available for various fundraising and filmography events that have occurred there over the years.
Austin is survived by his son, Dwayne Flook, grandson Logan Flook “The Boy”, grandson Parker Flook “The Baby” and Crystal Flook, “Micki” as he liked to call her. He will also be fondly remembered by special friends James, Leslie & Jamie Cochran, Bruce & Kathy Poole, Dennis & Joyce Everett, the members of Actor’s Hill Shooting Syndicate along with countless family, friends, and auction goers.
The family would like to extend their special thanks and gratitude to Paramedic Keli Smith with Washington County DES, Paramedic Kelli Morgan and technician James Foreberger with Sharpsburg EMS, the staff of 4 East at Meritus Medical Center, the palliative care staff at Meritus Medical Center, and the staff with Hospice of Washington County for all of their care and compassion during this time.
