December 03, 1936 ‒ June 22, 2021
BELLVILLE: Back in the day Cecil grew up planting and harvesting potatoes on the farm that is now the new addition to the Bellville Cemetery. He was happy for it to be his final resting place as he had so many fond memories of the farm from his younger years.
Cecil passed away June 22, 2021. He was born on December 3, 1936 and shared a birthday with his wife Patricia Carol Schlosser Flynn, who preceded him in death on July 26, 2020 and was the love of his life. They were married 63 years. Their headstone was the first to be placed in the new addition of the cemetery.
Cecil graduated from Bellville High School in 1957 and began working at the Bellville Gorman Rupp plant where he was a loyal employee for 40 years. He loved Michigan vacations, raccoon hunting with his buddies, family time, and a good round of golf. His grandchildren were all so special to him.
Cecil is survived by his children Kimberly Flynn Knapp of Bellville, Teresa (Ted) Catino of Carmel, Indiana, Michael Flynn of Bellville, and Donald Flynn of Bellville; four grandchildren Lindsay (John) Williams, Sara Smouther, McKenzie (Nick) Eaton, and Bryan Michael Flynn; two step-grand-daughters, Kristyn, (Jason) Fitcho and Brynn (Joseph) Jones; and twelve great-grandchildren. Cecil’s sisters and brothers surviving are Jewelene (Bill) Smith, Tom (Becky) Flynn, Anna Fay Browning, and Daryl (Barb) Flynn.
He was preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Lonnie Flynn, and granddaughter Kirstin Morgann Knapp.
He was a pawpaw who was much loved and will be greatly missed.
A private graveside service will be held in Bellville Cemetery in the new addition off of 97, where Cecil and Pat will be laid to rest together. An open house celebration will be held Saturday, July 24, 2021 from 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Legion Park in Bellville.
Donations may be made to Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA.org) in hopes for a cure.
