Joel Flournoy, aka Fluker was a unique and special man, he was a son, brother, and his favorite title Uncle Joel! Joel was very ill as a child and teen which prevented him from participating in many activities, because of this he developed a passion for reading any and everything. His greatest hobby during this time was building model cars and airplanes. In later years he continued his passion for cars of which he had many over the years. Joel worked as a car salesman and finance director at many different car dealerships continuing that passion. After he retired, he returned to his passion for reading. Joel was never married but developed a fan base that was quite remarkable due to his outgoing personality. If you knew him, you loved him.
