He survived his sisters, Marjorie Anne Flood, Louise Flood Egan Steele, and his brother, Howard Eaton Flood.  At age 17, Tim left Princeton University to join the Marines. He trained at Parris Island and was then sent to Tientsin, China, where he served with the legendary “China Marines.”  He returned to Princeton in 1946 on the GI Bill.

Flood (Nubis), Charles Egan, and Sandy Egan; his nieces Lynda F. O’Grady (Michael), Farley Green (Tom), Susan Blinn (Jim), and Molly Taylor (Mike).
