Fernando “Junior” Flores

Fernando “Junior” Flores, of Durant, Okla., was taken from this earth too soon on Sunday, May 24, 2020 at the age of 15. He was born on Feb. 26, 2005 in Dallas, Texas to Fernando Flores Sr. and Mary Ellen Kelsay.

Junior moved from Dallas in 2017 and was going into his sophomore year at Durant High School. Fernando loved to play a lot of sports. He was on the track, soccer, football, and basketball teams. Junior was a member of the student ministry at Fusion Bible Church Durant.

He always had a smile on his face and will be dearly missed. We love you, Fernando.
