John J. Flynn 1935 – 2019 Obituary 

Commander John J. Flynn, age 83, of Newport and Coronado, California died Saturday, January 5, 2019, at St. Clare Home in Newport with his wife and niece by his side.

Born in Newport, October 15, 1935, to the late John J. Flynn and the late Dorothy E. Fleming. He was the husband of Commander Mary Taylor Flynn, Nurse Corps, USN (ret). In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his beloved brother, Lieutenant General William S. Flynn, USA (ret).
Known in Newport as Jay, he graduated from De LaSalle Academy in 1952 and graduated from Manhattan College in 1956. After completing Navy Officer Candidate School, he was commissioned an Ensign in the Navy. After a stint aboard the USS Abbott he attended the Submarine School in New London, Connecticut and served in three submarines while in the Submarine Service.

He later served in the amphibious forces and was executive officer of USS Denver and Commanding Officer of the USS Mobile. During the 1975 evacuation of Saigon, Vietnam a journalist from the New York Times who with 32 other newsmen evacuated to the Mobile, said of the captain of Mobile “Cmdr. J. Flynn of Newport, RI had a lean jaw, steel blue eyes and a quiet confidence and the Mobile was well prepared to do its unlikely job of picking up Vietnamese refugees.”

His final tour of duty was at the Pentagon and he retired in 1976. During his career he was awarded the Bronze Star with combat “V”, the Combat action and Navy Unit Commendation ribbons plus other service and campaign medals. After retirement, he was employed by several companies in positions of Naval analysis. He ended his bachelorhood in 1979 when he and Mary married. He happily accompanied her on assignments to Naples, Italy, San Diego, California and Washington, DC. Upon her retirement they spent the summer in Newport and the winter in Coronado. He called it the best “set up ever”.

Jay loved the water. He was an accomplished sailor be it under a sail or with a good engine powering him along. He was a long time member of the New York Yacht Club and the Coronado Yacht Club. A nephew said of him “Jay was a larger-than-life guy – possessed of a keen intellect, a boisterous sense of humor, 1000-watt smile, a booming laugh, and if he couldn’t remember your name it was ‘Hey, Pal!’

He is survived by his wife, Mary; sister-in-law, Lynn Egan Flynn; five adoring nieces: Erin E. Flynn of Newport, Chyleene Flynn O’Connor and husband Jack of Middletown, Keely Flynn Connery and husband Paul of West Hartford, CT; Deirdre Flynn Shope and husband Tim of Pittsburgh, PA and Tara M. Flynn of Middletown. Also, Mary’s sisters; Nancy Taylor Dudley and her husband Edwin of Jonesboro, Arkansas and Sarah Taylor Nichols and her husband Randy of Isola, Mississippi. He leaves many younger nieces and nephews and a host of friends across the country.

He has left on his final patrol.

Calling hours will be held Friday, January 11, 2019 from 4-7 pm in the O’Neill-Hayes Funeral Home, 465 Spring Street, Newport. A Memorial Mass will be held in the Spring.

Obituary

La Blanc, Robert E. of Manhattan, died peacefully at home on Saturday January 5th, at age 84.

“Big Bob” was truly a giant presence. He earned great success and respect in business yet was proudest of his work with scholarship funds for high school and college students through foundations set up in his daughter’s memory

Bob was born and raised in Forest Hills, attended LaSalle Military Academy in Oakdale, and graduated from Manhattan College with a BS in Electrical Engineering. Manhattan College remained important in his life as he served for many years as a trustee, eventually being granted an honorary doctorate. Bob served in the Air Force in Newfoundland. He received an MBA from NYU. Bob is survived by Betty, his wife of 56 years, and four children, Elizabeth, Robert Jr, Paul and Michelle and seven grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter, Jeannie.

Bob spent his career in communications and finance, starting at Bell Labs, becoming a partner at Salomon Brothers, then Vice-President of Continental Telephone, before founding his own telecommunications consulting firm, Robert E. La Blanc Associates. He served as a Director of many public companies and philanthropic organizations such as the Scholarship Fund for Inner City Children and Ronald McDonald House.

Bob loved music and singing in choirs. He was a voracious reader and had a particular interest in Civil War and WWII history.

Even in the midst of debilitating illness, he was still Bob – smiling and singing and asking what he could do for you. He was, above all, the greatest husband, father, grandfather and friend anyone could be lucky enough to have.

The wake will be held at Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel at 1076 Madison Ave 980 Park Ave. at 10 AM on Wednesday.

Mr. Edward Michael Kelly
Gainesville, Virginia
Age 85

Edward (Ed) Michael Kelly, a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend to many, died peacefully in his sleep on August 3, 2018 at the age of 85. He was surrounded by family all week at a place he loved dearly the Outer Banks of North Carolina before passing from complications related to metastatic prostate cancer. Ed was a truly special soul with a heart full of kindness and generosity. He will be missed dearly by all who knew him.

He also coached many of his sons youth basketball and baseball teams.

He loved to travel spending summer vacations in the Outer Banks with family for 45 years, wintering in Naples, Florida for the past 14 years, visiting his parent s homeland of Ireland on multiple occasions, and taking cruises with his wife and friends as often as possible. 

Ed s family was his greatest love in life followed closely by the New York Giants and New York Yankees. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Catherine Elder Kelly; six children and their spouses: Michael Kelly (Valerie) of Havre de Grace, MD, Irene Kelly Starrs (Joseph) of South Riding, VA, James Kelly (Jessica) of Warrenton, VA, Thomas Kelly (Evangeline) of Alexandria, VA, Stephen Kelly (Nancy) of Boulder, CO, and Christopher Kelly (Maria) of McLean, VA; nineteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
