Patrick Wilson Flautt, a Greenwood, MS, native who turned an early interest in computers into a successful career with IBM, died May 2 in Sunnyvale, TX. He was 87.
Pat was born March 5, 1936, in Glendora, MS, the third of five children of the late Thomas Joseph Flautt and Alline Mitchener Flautt. He graduated from Greenwood High School, where he played the tuba for the GHS Band and the Lions All-State Band. Pat attended St. Louis University before receiving a bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronics engineering in 1959 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He was an Eagle Scout and a member of the U.S. Army Reserve.
After graduating from Georgia Tech, Pat worked his entire career with IBM as a systems engineer, specializing in system analysis and installation. He always looked the part, complete with a short-sleeved dress shirt and pocket protector. Pat worked in several IBM offices from coast to coast before retiring in his final stop in Dallas, TX. He was an avid photographer and gardener who enjoyed helping others with computer repairs. He was known for having a cheerful spirit and booming laugh.
Pat is survived by his wife Francine Cannon Flautt and her two sons, Frank Pecachek and Clint (Marci) Pecachek of Fort Worth, TX, two grandsons, Brackney Pechacek of Arizona and Andrew Hendrixson of Wills Point, TX; three brothers, Tom Flautt of Cincinnati, OH, Henry Flautt of Greenwood, MS, and Jimmy Flautt of Brandon, MS, and a sister, Joanne Flautt Branham of Greenwood, MS, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was an active member of Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Dallas.
The family wishes to thank Charles Mickey Hunt for his friendship and guidance, and care givers at Long Creek Assisted Living and Helping Hands Hospice for their loving care.
A private service will be held in Greenwood. Please send any memorials to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Condolences can be expressed virtually at Anderson Clayton Gonzalez Funeral Home, Mesquite, TX.
