My family has known Tom for nearly 20 years. He was our legal representation for every car accident & fender bender we ever had in Florida, but whenever there was a legal issue outside of his expertise he always helped or pointed us in the right direction. More importantly, he was our Brother in Christ, a fellow parishioner at St. Joseph's Catholic Church & member of the Knights of Columbus. Tom was a superb lawyer & even better friend. Our family will miss him dearly. God Bless you, Tom!

Our deepest sympathy & prayers go out to Gayle & to all the Flynn family.
We were privileged to know Tom as "Coach Flynn" some 25 yrs. ago when our son, Brian, was on the Legler & Flynn baseball team. Tom was a very fine man & a dedicated & great coach. He gave so much of his time & always set a wonderful example for a team of young boys. Those were truly the "good times"! Tom, you will always be fondly remembered by our family. May you Rest In Peace...

I am so sorry for your loss. Tom will be missed at BNI and especially by me. It was a given that when I would visit the chapter, Tom's smile and laugh would be infectious. He always had a great story and made people feel special. I'm honored to have shared just a little slice of who Tom was. Prayers for the family during this time.

Tom was such a great Catholic man and tireless advocate for pro-life. He served on the Board of Directors of SOLVE MATERNITY HOMES for many years and never failed to come forward when needed. He gave some of the best pro-life speeches ever heard. Rest in peace, God's Faithful Servant. You will never know how many at-risk babies you helped save. Sincerest condolences to Gayle and family.

Tom Flynn has touched more lives in a positive way than any other we know of. He offered assistance to countless individuals and families through his strong Catholic faith, unending compassion for others, and law profession. He assisted many of his brothers and sisters in the community with personal matters and was a mentor in how life should be lived. He will be greatly missed and impossible to replace. Our condolences to Gayle and all the Flynn family and may Tom rest in peace until we all meet again.

So sorry about Toms death. Just way too young. We love him and had so many special times at the cabin. The Fiddlers Jamboree just wont be the same without him. He will probably be singing and dancing with lots of family! Tom, we love you and you will be forever missed. Live you!

I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. Tom was a wonderful person, a great conversationalist and a person of great faith. My pilgrimage to Spain and Portugal was enhanced by meeting Tom and spending time with him. May he dance in heaven with all our loved ones who have gone before us.
20 febrero, 2018 16:28:27
I am just stunned, and so sad to hear of Tom's passing. My sister and I were on pilgrimage to Spain & Portugal along with Tom and Gayle last year. He was such a delight -- so vibrant, so passionate, so smart. And so funny. He teased me incessantly about wearing a USC hat. Teased me even more about coming from liberal whacky California. I enjoyed him so much. We talked politics, faith, college sports, law and just a little bit of everything you could think of. Even though I knew him such a short time, he was the kind of person who made you feel like you were friends forever. Gayle and family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

We are saddened to hear of Tom's death. My daughter had such admiration and respect. Losing a loved one is difficult but try to remember what a very special man
And how much joy he shared to those around him.
He will be missed by many.

When the Scriptures speak of a "Just man," Thomas would fill the role without question. Honest, faithful, kind, generous and loving only begin to describe him. May God reward him with the joy of paradise.

I worked for him for several years. Whenever I went back to visit, he always had a kind word for me. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

Such unfortunate timing of Tom's passing. I knew him for only a short time and enjoyed his passion for the Catholic Faith and his commitment to the Knights of Columbus. Tom will be greatly missed in many different ways.
