Flip married the love of his life, Denise Fox, January 16, 1975, in San Angelo, TX. He spent almost 30 years in Port Aransas working as a carpenter and contractor. He lived life on his own terms, enjoying the things he loved. He was an expert craftsman, fisherman, and marksman. He loved dogs more than most humans.
