Former R-J mailroom chief Flansburg dies

Frank M. Flansburg Jr., a former Review-Journal mailroom manager, died Friday. He had celebrated his 66th birthday Tuesday.

The Burlington, N.J., native had a heart transplant 12 years ago, and the heart simply wore out, said Micki Flansburg , his wife of 38 years.

“This was a man that nobody disliked,” Flansburg said. “He was just the nicest guy, truly a good guy. He was devoted to his family, devoted to me and he worked hard.

“His heart was just tired. It didn’t have the strength to boot back up.”

The couple met in 1970 when Micki Flansburg worked for her husband, who was the mailroom manager at the Burlington County Times, a daily newspaper in Willingboro Township, N.J. They were married two years later.

The Flansburgs moved to Las Vegas in 1985 after Frank was offered a position as the Review-Journal mailroom manager. He worked as the supervisor for five years.

He is survived by his wife, Micki, who also is a former Review-Journal employee; the couple’s five children; and 10 grandchildren.

The funeral is 4 p.m. Wednesday at Palm Mortuary, Summerlin, 7400 W. Cheyenne Ave., and is open to the public.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be sent to the Nevada Donor Network, Inc., located at 2085 E. Sahara Ave.
