Flora was born in Elkhart on June 28, 1931, to Lawrence & Ollie (Bankes) Flora. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers. He married Willa Beth Anderson on Oct. 2, 1992, who survives. He is also survived by four children, four step-children, 10 grandchildren, seven step-grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Many of Flora’s dealers for the Park Homes product may remember his parties at the local Trap Range during the “South Bend” show, and how he included a Bible in his Park Homes, Park Models.
