Obituary of John L. Flynn

It is with great sadness that the family of John L. Flynn (Jack) share his passing on January 12, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. Jack proudly worked as an Electrical Engineer at Pfizer until he retired in 1995 but continued as a consultant for many years. Jack also instructed at the Mechanics Institute, was a member of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen in New York City, and served as an Officer on the School’s Committee. Jack is survived by his daughters Alice Foley (Tom Foley) and Jacqueline Flynn (Vito Fronda) and five grandchildren Thomas John Foley, Michael Foley, Daniel Foley, Topher Fronda and Jessica Fronda. Happy Jack always had a smile on his face and a whistle on his lips. When called to service, Jack defended his country during the Korean War. Upon return, Jack married his high school sweetheart Alice. They remained married for 63 years, inseparable until her passing in 2018. Together they traveled the world and built a legacy of memories. Jack was passionate about electrical engineering, obtained his Bachelor’s degree City College, and helped educate the many generations of engineers at the Mechanics Institute. He was proudest of his girls, who are heartbroken by his loss but are committed to maintaining his traditions and deep family values. Memorial donations may be made to Bronx - James J.
