RIPLEY – Steve Flynn passed away Thursday evening, Sept. 20, 2012, surrounded by his loving family at a Bangor hospital, from a brain aneurysm. He was born Dec. 22, 1951, in Grand Rapids, Mich., the fifth child of Roger and Alice (Wright) Flynn.
He was chief operator at Guilford/Sangerville Sanitary District, Guilford, where he worked 25 years with Frank, Rhonda and Wayne. He was a great harmonica player and loved the blues. He never missed the Blues Festival in Rockland. He enjoyed his trips to Eastport and everywhere else he and Bren would go in this wonderful state. Steve had a good sense of humor and had a great belly laugh. He was very kind and gentle man with a big heart. He was loved dearly by everyone who knew him and had many good friends.
He leaves behind his wife, Brenda Foley-Flynn of Ripley; and his son, Richard Quinn of Bangor. He is also survived by his three sisters, Sandi and Jim Silverman, Sharon Grant, and Janie and Robert Fritsch of Dexter; three bothers, Roger and Velva Flynn of Palm Harbor, Fla., Michael Flynn of Ripley and Pat and Julie Flynn of Skowhegan; his mother-in-law, Karen Foley of Boston; many nieces and nephews. His dog, Boomer, misses him as well.
The family will plan a service at a later date. Please consider making a donation in his name to the animal shelter of your choice. He soars with the eagles now.
