Erwin was born July 15, 1943 in Wolcott, NY to Fredrick & Enid Flint. He was raised on a farm in North Wolcott until he joined the Armed Forces. In 1971, Erwin received an Honorable Discharge from the United States Army after serving six years including a tour in Panama. Erwin had been employed with Garlock, Inc for 38 years when he retired from being a machinist in 2005.
Erwin leaves behind a legacy of memories that will be cherished by all who knew him. He was known for his humor and unwittingly charm and received the nickname Smiley because of those qualities. Smiley loved life and prided himself in his children, Dustin (Cande) Flint, Brandon (Deanna) Flint, Heather (Shawn) Hitchner and Rebecka (Dennis, Jr.) Brown and grandchildren. He was a man of great strength, and that coupled with his drive got him through many tough times. Smiley will be greatly missed; however one will not be able to think of him without remembering his amazing personality and contagious smile.
