Luigi Flaim - Obituary


uigi Flaim (87) passed on December 11, 2021, at Washington Hospital Center after a lengthy battle with congestive heart failure and cancer. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Amelia Flaim. Luigi is also survived by his four children, Remigio, Rita, Graziella, Anna (Danny-spouse) and 3 grandchildren (Olivia, Jessica, and Nicholas). He is survived by his younger brother, Isidoro Flaim. He was proceeded in death by his mother Liduina, father Isidoro, and sister Oliva. He was a retired cabinet maker and was the Treasurer for Local 1694 Union. He was an avid churchgoer and often assisted in the preparation of masses, and whatever the church required of him. His love for church started in his hometown of Tregiovo, Italy where he was born June 12, 1934. He was an altar server as a child and often would ring the church bells to announce mass was starting. He came to the United States in 1967 and worked diligently to provide for his young family back in Tregiovo. He returned home in 1970 and brought his family to America on June 12, 1971. His love for his craft allowed him to work on many great projects, including woodworking for the Nation’s Capital Building, White House, and other great buildings. He also assisted in the woodworking that can be found on the altar area at St. John’s the Evangelist Church in Clinton MD. He also had a real knack for gardening and could often be found late Spring-early Summer working on his garden. He had a love for planting tomatoes, green peppers, green beans, and his favorites (iceberg lettuce and kale). He had great love for socializing and could always be found in a corner telling stories of the old days, when he was younger. He loved his family the most, and always wanted to encourage people to do what was right and the best for them. He also loved to cook and could be found making Polenta and Home-Made Apple Strudel in the Fall and Winter months. His favorite sayings were, “What can I do? and “Su con Coraggio!” In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made to St. Johns the Evangelist Church, 8908 Old Branch Ave, Clinton MD. 20735.
