Pat Flynn, one of our SWCS Class of '66 classmates has died...

Class of '66 classmates:

I received news today from classmate Steve Sewell that classmate Pat Flynn died last week.

His obituary from the Jamestown Post-Journal is reprinted in its entirety below.

I knew Pat pretty well during our high school days. We were in most of the same classes and as fellow Catholics, rode the religious-instruction bus once a week a together. Once we headed off to different colleges, I lost all touch with him.

I last saw Pat (I think) at our 20th class reunion. We had a discussion about ROTC (which I believe Pat was involved with in college) and where our lives had taken us.

Perhaps ironically, he lived only an hour and a half's drive from where I am writing this (Watkins Glen) where I have retired.

Rest in peace, Patrick J. Flynn... Rest in peace.
