Sean O’Flynn passed away peacefully at home on December 30, 2020. Left to cherish his memory is his life companion of 33 years, Charlotte. He was born and raised in Ireland and immigrated to New York City in 1961. He would recall often the feeling of promise and hope that swept over him as the Mauretania ship he was on, sailed into the New York Harbor and he saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time. He was employed by the City of New York Board of Education for 30 years and retired in 2000.
He loved all sports, especially Hurling and was an accomplished hurler in Ireland and continued playing in Gaelic Park in the Bronx for many years.
He was an avid golfer and his love of the sport brought him to the Villages in 2004. When not playing golf, he was an ambassador at the Tierra Del Sol golf course. During his early morning rounds he became aware of the problem the sun created and not being able to find golf cart visors he created a formal design, patented it and founded Easy View Golf Cart Visors, LLC.
Sean leaves behind his daughter Jacinta (Peter), sons Sean (Annette), Michael (Corinne), Joseph (Laura), Peter (Michele) and eleven grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and he joins his grandaughter Rowan O’Flynn in heaven.
His infectious smile, his hearty laugh and his ability to make everyone he met an instant friend will be sorely missed. He will be put to rest in his beloved Ireland.

    Seán I find it hard to believe I am writing this. You were a bright light to our family and all those who knew you and loved you. You loved your family and your lovely partner Charlotte and you never forgot your Irish roots. You were a great Gaa follower and you took a big interest in Mayo football. Even though you are no longer with us in body I'm sure you will always be here with us in spirit watching over us. I hope there are plenty GAA pitches and good golf courses in your new home. I'm sure you will be the best all round sports man without any doubt.
    Time cannot heal the hearache
    Or stop a silent tear
    It won't take away the memories of one we loved so dear
    Our sincere condolences to Charlotte and family Jacinta Sean and Michael
    Kathleen, Tony and Family.

    I wish to express my sincere heartfelt sympathy to Charlotte
    and to his much loved family, Jacinta, Sean, & Mike
    On the passing of Sean.

    It’s with sadness I write these few notes in memory:
    It was always great to hear Sean was coming home on vacation,
    My first task was to book the best golf courses e.g Killarney,
    Ballybunion, Cork golf club etc .I always enjoyed playing golf with him
    In his prime he played off 2 handicap. Apart from the golf he loved to make frequent visits
    to Ballyhooley, his place of birth until he was 12 years old, then our parents bought a small farm
    in Lavally, near mallow. He enjoyed working on the land saving the hay in the summer time
    and helping the neighbours all of whom he had cherished memories.
    His holidays were filled from 7am to 10 pm visiting his Aunts and Uncles and cousins, they were very important to him.
    It’s now hard to believe that all those visits are gone, as well as all the phone calls inquiring about the golf, the GAA matches
    and especially if Cork was playing when coming up to the all Ireland finals in the month of September.
    His love for Ireland and its people was endless, which is signified by his desire to have his ashes laid to rest in Ireland. Sean,
    you will be joining your granddaughter Roman and your nephew Kieran in heaven,
    I never thought, as I said goodbye to him on his last visit, that was to be the last goodbye.
    So Sean may you always walk in sunshine
    And God around you flow
    For the happiness you gave to us
    No one will ever know
    Brother , Eamon & Mary (sister in law)

    Sean you may be gone but will never be forgotten I first met Sean in 1972 and we remained friends It was because of Sean and
    Charlotte that I became a Villager He always wanted to help people and never wanted anything in return He was a big follower of
    Irish music and everything Irish As a golfer he had it all and his swing was poetry in motion He will be missed by everyone that
    knew him Our sympathies to Charlotte and Jacinta Sean and Michael May he rest in peace Nick and Mary Power

    Our deepest sympathies to Charlotte and Sean's Family on their loss. We were friends of Sean and visited him & Charlotte

    former playing partners. May He Rest In Peace. Ar Dheis De Go Raibh A Anam. Eddie & Marian Donohue
