He was born February 15, 1972 in Kilmactranny, Boyle, County Sligo, Ireland to Shamus and Bridget (nee O’Shea) Flynn, one of seven children. Growing up on a farm, he had a tremendous love of nature and you could always find him tinkering in his garden.
He came to America 29 years ago and, after a few years, started his own company – Mike’s Home Improvement. He made numerous contacts, of whom many became life long friends. He was a ferocious friend and loved family above all else never hesitating to help anyone. He enjoyed a good time with friends and family always shining the spotlight on others. He loved playing golf and traveling especially with his extended family. He was a keen fisherman and excelled at several sports and made a point of making everyone feel welcome and happy.
He is survived by his mother Bridie and stepfather Patrick Tierney, his adoring wife Peggy, his loving sisters Ann Devitt (Michael) from Croydon, England, Teresa Flynn from Croydon, England, Mary Fisher (Matthew) from Rye, NY, Catherine Katsigris (John) from Greenwich, Ct. brothers Patrick Flynn (Noreen) from Sligo, Kevin Flynn from Sligo and his nieces and nephews: Anna, Kelly and Michaela Katsigris, Brendan Fisher, Shamus, Eilish, Gerard and Thomas Flynn, Steven, Liam, Sarah and Georgina Devitt, Rebecca Devitt, and Scarlett Ferguson.
His unexpected passing leaves a hole in the hearts of all who loved him that will never be filled.
