  1. Much loved and wonderful neighbour at Ryeside Road, Glasgow. Shared special times. Lots of happy memories.My thoughts are with Cathy at this sad time.

  2. My wife and I met the Flynns when they first came to California and we have been friends ever since. Michael was a gentleman, a quiet man. We remember his smile.

  3. Dear Cathy Irene And Michael It was with great sadness that Ray and I learned of Mick,s death. He was such a lovely man and our hearts and prayers go out to you and the family. We so much enjoyed your company at Ray’s birthday and Mick,s singing it was like the old days. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Love always Rose and Ray Rinaldi.

  4. Dear Cathy & Family. Fred & I wish to let you know how terribly sorry we were to hear about Mickey death. We met you both through the British Commonwealth and Friends Club and although we never talked a lot, He always struck us an a kind and gentle man,who will be missed by many. May God help you through this trying time. With Love.

  5. Michael was an outstanding crossing guard for the City of Redondo Beach. He continually performed in an exemplary, professional, and conscientious manner. The children adored him. He protected our little miracles as they crossed the streets, always ensuring their safe arrivals to their schools. Words that come to mind in describing Michael Flynn are caring, sincere, honest, and “always looking out for the kids.” Michael will be missed, but his legacy of mentoring our school children, rendering support, and being a superb role model will carry on for all eternity in the hearts and minds of those children he looked after. All my prayers and heartfelt sympathies to family and loved ones. Respectfully, Jim Acquarelli – Redondo Beach Police
