Flynn, Br. Anthony [MC1952 RIP]
I learned tonight that Brother Anthony Flynn passed away down at Lincroft(?) . He is to be waked at the Brother’s House here at the College, on Friday with the Funeral Mass on Saturday. Brother Antony was the older brother of my classmate, the late Tom Flynn,’53. He was very active with the Alumni Society in his later years, attending many of our Saturday meetings.
May He Rest In Peace.
McEneney, Mike (MC1953)
[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. It’s great to get some idea of the person. I find that the obits leave out all the “color”. Sigh. Another “song” lost. Have to work harder capturing all the others.]
