OLIN F. FLYNN

FERRISBURGH — It is with much sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Olin F. Flynn of Ferrisburgh, Vt. He passed away on July 11, 2022, at UVM Medical Center surrounded by his loved ones, from complications due to a stroke. He was born in Huntington, Vt., on Nov. 17, 1927, the son of the late Charles and Madeline (Vincent) Flynn. At the age of four he moved to Ferrisburgh and lived there until his death.

He graduated from Vergennes High School. Following graduation he worked for several construction companies while working on the farm alongside his grandfather. He retired in 1992 after working 35 years at Hercules in Vergennes as an inspector in the department. He worked on several of the NASA projects that are now in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

He dedicated over 25 years to coaching baseball, from Little League to Babe Ruth and on to Legion baseball. His love of baseball was evident in his coaching and the respect his former players still have for him.  He also loved and looked forward to  bowling with his two older daughters in the Senior League.  

The most precious gift in life was his family. He married the love of his life, Eunice Stevens on Nov. 30, 1946, at St. Peter’s Church in Vergennes, Vt. They had 68 wonderful years together.

He is survived by his five children: Zandra (Marcel) Cousino, Iona (Loren) Smith, Mari (Paul) Quesnel, Shari (Roger) Lussier and Timmy (Erica) Flynn.

Also his 13 grandchildren: Amy (Randy) Farnsworth, Ryan (Toni) Cousino, Randy (Billie Jo) Smith, Stacie Smith, Kady (Donavan) Popp, Kellie Marra, Kristi (Lance) Wood, Paul-Matthew (Amanda) Quesnel, Jennifer (Mark) Barnes, Kyle (Lianne) Lussier, Samantha (Jordan) Hillman, Simon (Maddie) Flynn, and Maxwell (Briena) Flynn.

His 33 great-grandchildren: Garrett (Elise) Cousino; Tanika Cousino; Mikayla (Garrison) Farnsworth; Kolby Farnsworth; Madison and Sophia Cousino; Elyzabeth (Ryan) Donnelly; Ashlie (Ethan) Gevry; Bailey (Maddie) Smith; Gracie Smith; Destiny Danforth; Jeremiah Popp; Aiden Decker; Braxton and Kaibry Marra; Samantha Jo (Kaden) Odell; Dominick Popp; Ava, Evan and Cowen Wood; Luke and John Quesnel; Celia, Avalee and Maddux Barnes; Charlie, Henry and Lennon Lussier; Tatum and Connor Hillman; Thatcher Flynn; and Ellie and Eden Flynn. And his six great-great-grandchildren; Isla Jensen; Gavin Gevry; Carter Donnelly; and Aryanna, Braylin and Kaden Odell.

He is also survived by sister Delisle (Len) Letersky, and brother Elywn (Sue) Flynn and many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and special neighbors.

He was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Madeline Flynn; his loving wife, Eunice Flynn; his son Kevin Flynn; his daughter-in law Terry Flynn; three grandchildren, Scott Cousino, Carrie Flynn and Tyler Flynn; and a great-granddaughter, Bryanna Popp.

He will be missed tremendously by his entire family, friends and neighbors. We are all so grateful and cherish all the time we had with him. He taught us to be kind, respectful, caring and compassionate, and not to judge others. Every day with him was a gift. He brought joy to many through his singing and yodeling. He left a lasting impression on everyone he met.

The wake will be on Thursday, July 14, from 5-8 p.m. at Brown McClay Funeral Home, located in Vergennes at 48 South Maple Street. The funeral will be held on Friday, July 15, at 11 a.m., at St. Peter’s Church in Vergennes. A burial will take place immediately after the funeral at St.Peter’s cemetery.

The family would like to invite everyone to St. Peter’s Parish Hall adjacent to the church for a luncheon and celebration of his life.

Donations in his memory can be made to The Ferrisburgh Fire Department or the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad. To send online condolences to his family please visit www.brownmcclayfuneralhomes.com.◊
