Obituary From Paul's Family

Paul A. Flynn, longtime resident of Norwood, NJ and recently of Irvine, CA, passed away on August 21st. As most of the country celebrated the historic solar eclipse, his loved ones celebrated his historic life with their eyes to the heavens wishing him safe passage.

He attended both Norwood Public School and Northern Valley Regional High School in Old Tappan. After graduating Fairfield University in 1982, Paul enjoyed a 35+ year career in innovative lighting technologies with such companies as Industrial Devices, Chicago Miniature Lamp, and most recently WAMCO in Irvine, CA. His professional accomplishments extended his network to over 30 countries worldwide where he undoubtedly left an indelible mark.

Known affectionately as Flynnster, Stoid, Paulo Tallo, Dad, and Grandpa, he was often mistaken for the late great Harold Ramis. A resemblance so uncanny that he once signed an autograph for an unsuspecting fan. Known for his booming voice, tall stature and sense of humor, Paul lived his life full of practical jokes and wet willies. He was a voracious reader, avid New York Giants fan and frequent moviegoer. His laughter, sage advice, and hugs will be sorely missed by all.

He leaves his wife Evelyn of Tustin, CA; daughter, Morgan Flynn of White Plains, NY; son Andrew Flynn of Orange County, CA; daughter Justine and her husband Anthony Lazzara and his grandson, Anthony James of Rockland County, NY. He also leaves a sister Janet and her husband Wayne Sokoly of Park Ridge, NJ and their three children. He is predeceased by his mother and father, Andrew and Maria Flynn of Norwood, NJ.
