Jim Flood, of Forked River, the husband of the late Helen (Penny) Flood, father, and friend spent thirty years working with ABC Television.  Starting in the early days of T.V with the local news and the Jimmy Dean show as a stage manager then making the transition into taped T.V with ABC Sports and ABC News.  He worked the early days of Monday Night Football and Wide World of Sports.  He worked the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games and was one of the few "newsmen" on the scene for the hostage tragedy at the 1972 Munich Games.  He witnessed countless moonshots then years later all of the early shuttle rides, the Columbia explosion was his last.  While working on Presidential elections and Conventions he meet every president from Lyndon B Johnson to George H.W Bush. He participated and witnessed more of our history then most but always considered himself just an average guy.

  Jim spent his retirement in Forked River, NJ fishing, enjoying his family and finding new friends.  His time with the friends of Bill gave his life meaning and filled it with the love of wonderful people.  As his family we cannot thank these friends of his enough for enriching his life and helping him in his times of need. 

 He is survived by his sister Roberta Santry, his brother Thomas Flood, his daughters Maura Flood and Meg Flood, son-in-law Rob Ward, his grandchildren Kate Ward and Tim Ward.  Also cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who he loved dearly.  Our father will be missed by many.
