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.
