RIP Flavio (1991-2011)

Posted Wednesday, August 10th, 2011 09:18 pm GMT -5 in Family,Personal at 9:18 PM

Our last remaining cockatiel, Flavio, passed away tonight at the age of 20. That’s a pretty full life for an average cockatiel, but Flavio was no average bird. Loved dearly by our family, he will be greatly missed.

Flavio was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Ruprecht Chinken, mother George, brothers Beaker and Whitey and sister, Norm.

Born in a Madison apartment during my senior year of college, Flavio traveled with us to apartments in St. Paul and Eagan, followed by the townhouse and finally Oakbrooke, where a short funeral service was performed tonight on the path to the pond.

You were one funny, sassy bird, Flavio. Thank you for bringing so much joy to our lives.

SK writes:
You always sung with me, even when I was off-key. We watched movies together, just you and me. But today I guess you thought it was time to leave your family on Earth, and fly to the one up above. Even though you’re gone now, I know you’re happy and you will stay with me for years to come. I love you Flavio, may you rest in peace.

MK writes:
We will forever and always love you Flavio! You will always be in our hearts! You were the BEST bird ANY person in the whole world could have, Flavio, you were EXTRAORDINARY! I will miss you with all my heart! I remember before you left, we used to sing Mockingbird together. R.I.P I <3 you! 🙂
