Andor “Dean” Flagstad, 59, died March 28, 2022, following a brief illness. He was born February 28, 1963, in Green Bay to Andor and Joyce (Trani) Flagstad.
Dean was a graduate of Southwest High School, Class of 1981. Later, he attended UW Oshkosh to pursue a degree in marketing and advertising. In 1987, he left college to join his family’s business, Green Bay Nursery. He became the third-generation owner and operator of the business in 1992. On February 6, 1999, Dean married Bridget Reginato at Green Bay First Assembly of God Church.
Family was everything to him. Dean loved being with his children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. He was a man of strong faith; Jesus was his best friend. He served on the Board of Deacons for Green Bay First Assembly of God Church and for New Freedom Church. Dean was an avid sportsman who enjoyed spending his time fishing, camping, and being in the woods. He never missed an opportunity to make others laugh or bring a smile to someone’s face through his witty sense of humor. Dean will be remembered as an artistic and creative person; a quiet, gentle man; and someone who had an unmatched generosity for other people, ministry, and service.
Dean is survived by his parents, Andor and Joyce (Trani) Flagstad; wife, Bridget; his children, Lystra (Matthew) Clausen, Leigha (Caleb) Plehn, and Christa (Wes) Lewin; his grandchildren, Ember Clausen, Reverie Plehn, Rhema Lewin, Ellie Clausen, and Kairos Lewin; his sister, Barb (Jeff) Cline; his niece and nephews, Ben (Elizabeth) Cline, Jennifer (Nate) Tlougan, Joel Cline; first wife, Lori Graves, mother of Leigha and Wesley; along with several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his son Wesley.
