Flasch’s tenure in the auto glass industry began in 1983 at Globe Amerada Glass Co. In 2005, he left his role as general manager at Globe to become general manager at Gerber National Claims Services. He held that title for 15 years, at which time Flasch was promoted to vice president of national account sales in 2020. Flasch left the auto glass industry in 2022, becoming director of operations for St. Peter Lutheran Church in Schaumburg, Ill.
Flasch was born on November 1, 1959, in Chicago, and is survived by his wife Carla Flasch, and numerous family members including children, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, his mother and “dear friends,” according to his obituary.
“He will be deeply missed by his family and community,” his family writes in the obituary. “He will always be remembered as someone who dropped everything to help others, the life of every party, and the best husband and dad in the world.”
