Obituary

Mr. Michael Lavon Flowers Sr., 65, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021, at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital.

Mike was born on November 19, 1955 in Lawton, Ok., a son of William and Lola (Morrison) Flowers. He married Mollie Jean Dumboski, and to this union, their three children were born. On February 24, 2001, Mike married Terry Ann Jacobs in Jefferson City, Mo.

Mike was a graduate of Ritenour High School. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he continued his education. Mike courageously fought for our freedom for 20 years, retiring in 1997. He was veteran of Operation Desert Storm. He served in many duty stations including overseas to Germany and Hawaii. Mike participated in the historic falling of the Berlin wall bringing down communism. Mike’s honorable service shined as role model, with the majority his children following in his footsteps and serving in the military. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Disabled American Veterans (DAV). In August 2018 Mike was able to go on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. He was very dedicated to serving his country and had many hats and medals from his time in the service. Mike loved his country with all his heart.

Continuously dedicated to service, Mike then served 16 years as a Corrections Officer with the Jefferson City Correctional Center until his retirement in August 2014. He was a CO1 and earned the respect of all his fellow officers and inmates.

Mike enjoyed being outdoors as much as possible. He could often be found hunting, camping, and exploring nature. He also enjoyed traveling around in his camper and vacationing with his wife. Most of all, Mike cherished the time that he spent with his family and friends, especially hosting grandparents’ weekend. He will be most remembered for always being there when you needed him, and endlessly spoiling his grandchildren.

Survivors include: his loving wife, Terry; children, Michael Flowers Jr. (Lisa) of Topeka, Ks., Amanda Melton (Kevin) of Edgar Springs, Mo., Josh Flowers (Cindy) of Henley, Mo., Kyle Henry (Jackalyn) of St. Robert, Mo., Clayton Henry (Sara) of Lee’s Summit, Mo., Clark Henry of Jefferson City, Mo., and Kimberly Horn of Jefferson City, Mo; siblings, Pam Morris (Buddy) of Port Orchard, Wa., Kathy Thomas (Mike) of Waukesha, Wi., Kim Varner of Waukesha, Wi; and Bill Flowers (Kim) of St. Louis, Mo.; 15 grandchildren; and his fur babies, Jorge and Sam.

He was preceded in death by his parents and son, Cole Henry.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. Thursday, January 28, 2021. His funeral service will follow at 6:00 pm in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend CPT Marion Mitchell and Joe Jimmerson officiating. Everyone is welcome but please wear a personal mask.

Graveside services with military honors will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday at their family cemetery in Edwards, Mo.

A webcast of his service will begin at 6:00 pm Thursday for friends and family that are not able to attend by going to his memorial page on Freeman Mortuary’s website.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
