It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael James Flynn on September 30, 2011. Michael was born on February 25, 1948, in Vancouver, BC, and lived throughout Canada, spending the last six years of his life in Edmonton, AB. His memory will be cherished by his mother Jean, children Aaryn (Jennifer), Chris, and Lauren, grandchildren Kyle and Declan, siblings Patrick, Thomas, Maureen Pilon (Phil), and Laura Jacob (Elad), and many nieces, nephews, and friends. He is predeceased by his father Michael John and very recently his sister, Frances Anne.
Michael spent a good part of his career in law enforcement and security. He loved sports, especially baseball and soccer, and was an avid fisherman. His other passions were music, especially Country & Western and Jazz, and he relished food from around the world. He was a devoted son, loving and proud parent to his children and grandchildren, and an important father figure to many others. He touched our lives with his humour, optimism, and desire to help whenever it was needed. He is gone too soon but will never be forgotten.
