I knew him from being a customer in Harris Teeter. He was always kind, friendly and a hard working. Deepest sympathy.
Carl and Barbara Anderson
So sorry to learn of Karl passing. Jaroslawa we are with you in spirit and know he is at rest.
Karl F. Fleckhammer
Mr. Karl F. Fleckhammer, 88, passed away Thursday, October 27, 2022 at St. Vincents Community Hospice Center in Jacksonville.
He was born in New York City and was the son of the late Karl. F and Maria Bartholomae Fleckhammer.
He served his country honorably in the U. S. Army. He returned home after his service and was able to attend college majoring in English. After college he began work in his family business, Long Island Cutlery Company, a specialty company serving the medical and barbershop fields. While in New York he enjoyed running. He participated in several “mini-marathons” over the years and qualified for the New York City marathon one year.
Mr. Fleckhammer was a simple man with a dry sense of humor. He loved to read and to draw and sketch. Moving to Amelia Island in 2005, he enjoyed being active in local theater groups and spent a number of years working at Harris Teeter. With an eye for detail and a desire to contribute, he would submit written suggestions to the store about improving its service to customers. He always said his main job at Harris Teeter was as the “Silver Buffalo Wrangler” which was how he described his task of bringing shopping buggies back into the store from the parking lot.
He leaves behind his wife of over 50 years, Jaroslawa Fleckhammer of Fernandina Beach; three children, Bohdan Bobynskj of Mountain Top, PA, Orestra Bobynskj of Broadshillville, PA and Marta Campbell of Hilliard; his grandchildren, Sierra, Andrew, Heather, Stephanie, Jennifer, Daniel, Nicholas, Alison, Melanie, Michael and Kelly and his great-grandchildren, Vera, Kera, Sadie, Raelin, Violet, Summer, Lillian, Sophia, Destiny and Braedan.
There are no immediate plans for a service. Mr. Fleckhammer will be laid to rest at Jacksonville National Cemetery at a future date.
