More detail on this person: Stephen F. Flanagin, age 60, of Austin, Texas went home to God on Thursday, November 10th. He was born in Washington, D.C. to Charles and Romaine Flanagin.

Steve's love of learning led him to a multitude of studies, including Radio, Television, and Film at the University of Texas, religious studies at Golden Gate Seminary, bass guitar and Portuguese lessons. He earned a bachelors degree in Asian Studies and a masters degree in Library Science from the University of Hawaii.

He served as a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War, and he loved and honored his country and those who served with him.

Steve's career interests led him in many directions, including positions as a flight attendant for Pan Am, an actor/voice talent, a massage therapist, and a security patrol officer.

Steve was a man of integrity. He always wanted the best for his family and friends, was a rock of support for them, and constantly found ways to do things for others. He had a deep and abiding faith in God and worshipped at the Church of Conscious Harmony.

Steve impacted many lives, and we are deeply saddened by his loss. He will live in our hearts forever. He is survived by his loving wife Marvean, mother Romaine, son Ryan and wife Nora, daughter Kerri and husband Andrew, three beloved grandchildren, sisters Jan, Elaine, Betty, and Elly, brother Chuck, and special nieces and nephews.
