Leo Flynn, 75, of Lee's Summit, MO passed away Saturday, November 5, 2011 at his home in Lee's Summit. Leo was born on May 8, 1936 in North Tonawanda, NY to Arthur and Virginia Flynn. After his parents passed away in 1948 when Leo was only 12, his sister, Ginny, assumed his guardianship. Although it was a difficult time for them, they became a tight-knit family of two.

Family was all important to him and he spent many hours coaching softball, basketball, and Cub Scout baseball. After retirement Leo pursued his favorite pastime, golf. He became a Marshall at Shamrock Hills Golf Club.

Leo was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Virginia Flynn and his brother-in-law and long-time friend, James Seward.
