E. Patrick Flynn, 87, a resident of Carmel, NY, and New York, NY, passed away in peace on November 26, 2017. He was born on January 7, 1930, in New York, NY, to parents Helen J. Flynn and Edward J. Flynn, the storied political leader of the Bronx and former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Pat graduated from the Canterbury School in 1947 and Brown University in 1951. He was a proud Marine, served in Korea, bred Black Angus cattle, drove an Oliver tractor, owned a chain of gas stations, and made a career in real estate. He was an ocean sailboat racer, an avid polo player and a lifelong traveler who spent several months each year in Normandy, France.

Pat is survived by his five children: Edward J. Flynn, Helen C. Flynn, Robin Flynn Wagner, Dorian Flynn Fuhrman, Patrick C. Flynn; sons-in-law Thomas Wagner and Gary Fuhrman, eight grandchildren - Ryan Humphrey, Tyler Humphrey, Samantha Wagner, Chip Wagner, Adrian Flynn, Phillip Fuhrman, Grant Fuhrman, and Alana Fuhrman, and one great-grandchild, Jace Humphrey. He also leaves his brother Richard M. Flynn and sister Sheila Flynn DeCosse and their families with whom he was always close. And, finally, Pat leaves behind his beloved partner of 30 years, Toni Ausnit Flynn, and her son, Peter Ausnit.

Pat loved living on the same beautiful property in Carmel, New York that his parents bought almost a hundred years ago. Together with his siblings and mother, they created strong family connections with a wide network of beloved cousins that included many cherished childhood summers on "the farm." A memorial service will be held at St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac, NY, on December 7, at 10 am, with reception to follow.
