Obituary

John Thomas “Wolfie” Flores Jr., 70, of Brick Township, passed away peacefully and in the company of his loving family after a brief illness on Saturday, March 28th. Wolfie was born on December 10th, 1949 in Neptune and spent his formative years in Brielle. He married his childhood sweetheart, Candiee, in 1968, and together they settled into their home on Sea Girt Ave. in Wall, where they raised 10 children, instilling love, hard work and individuality. He supported his family primarily as a truck driver, working for several companies, but for the last 20 years at Reid Sod Farm in Freehold and NAPA Auto Parts in Spring Lake Heights. He was a parishioner at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Manasquan. He loved his family, dogs, music, motorcycles and NASCAR, and could often be seen enjoying life, family and friends at Wall Stadium, Leggett’s, his children’s sporting events and walking the Manasquan jetty. Wolfie was unapologetically one-of-a-kind. He lived life to the fullest, whether hanging with his friends at the Cove in Manasquan or cruising on his Harley Davidson. He packed 100 years of living into 70 years of life. Despite a seemingly rough exterior, he exuded kindness, decency and heart. He also found humor in how his personal style of tattoos and a long beard had inconceivably become fashionable to younger generations.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Candice Flores, his children and their spouses Allison Flores, John Flores III, Keith Flores (Karen Cassidy), Colleen Flores, Melissa Bahrs (Don), Eric Flores, Jessica Dill (Tom), Rebecca Dumas (Bret), Kevin Flores (Grainne Ping), Vanessa Elliott (Ross) and Andrew Flores (Kristen Lomax); his grandchildren Christian, Kaitlyn and Ben Bahrs, Hailey and Bobby Price, Ella Dunn, Keith Flores Jr., Lily and Jack Dumas, Lucy and Max Flores, an Elliott grandchild on the way, two great grandchildren and his adopted grandchildren Jesus, Monse and Joanna; his brother Mark Flores, as well as his sisters Ellen Hornyak, Janet Jasper, and Betsy McGarvey; and several loving nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind his loving pets, Leo, Otis and Smokey. He is predeceased by his sister Charlene Frazier and his parents, James T. Flores Sr. and Doris M (Hildenbrand) Ryff and his step-father, John S. Ryff.

Due to the current circumstances, a memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to the Coming Full Circle Loud N Clear Foundation (CFC), a charity Wolfie actively supported for their work in helping families afflicted by drug addiction. Arrangements are under the care of Orender Family Home for Funerals, Manasquan.

Although I have not seen John in decades, I have always cherished his free spirit and loving nature. I think back on the kindness shown to us and the many happy hours we spent with Candee and him while growing up together. I always looked up to him for judgement and guidance on how to best to seek the truth. My mother and father loved them as their own and we are all saddened by his passing.

Job well done and have a good voyage John - you will be missed.

Sadly,
Frank Conkling, son of Frank and Dorothy Conkling (a loving cousin)
