Gregory Eugene Flowers, 60, of Fayetteville died of heart disease Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Springdale. He was born February 16, 1957, in Fayetteville to George and Josie Flowers. He was preceded in death by his father.

Flowers was a member of the Fayetteville High School Class, the members of which also knew him by the nickname of “Gravy” or occasionally “Gravy Train.” One friend recalled how he got the nickname: Back in 1964, Greg and Michael Buchanan attended a Boys Club summer camp. Greg called Michael “mashed potatoes” and Michael called Greg “gravy.”

Greg attended the University of Arkansas, where he became a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. He was co-owner of Bullpen BBQ, and he formed and coached a city league basketball team named the Train Gang.

He is survived by his mother, Josie Flowers of Fayetteville; sons, Spencer Flowers of Fayetteville, Darnelle and wife Lindsey Flowers of Denver, Colorado, Monty and wife Stephanie Flowers of Fayetteville, and Johnathan and wife Sarah Flowers of Atlanta, Georgia; a daughter, Alexa Flowers of Fayetteville; a brother, George Flowers of Farmington; a sister, Tommie and husband Lawrence Davis of Little Rock; seven grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Saturday, April 22, at Beard’s Chapel with Gary Noble officiating. Interment will follow in Oak Cemetery under the direction of Beard’s Chapel. The family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 21, 2017 at the funeral home. Condolences at www.beardsfuneralchapel.com.
