George Flynn, RIP

From http://noreascon4.blogs.com/news/2004/08/sad_news.html:

"The Noreascon 4 committee is saddened to hear of the passing of George Flynn, F.N., yesterday morning, August 29, 2004. George was a mainstay of Boston-area fandom for many years, serving as the Secretary of Noreascon 2 and the WSFS Division Head for Noreascon 3. Noreascon 4 Chair Deb Geisler writes, 'George Flynn was a gentlefan, a kindly man, a scathing wit, and a treasure deeply prized by Boston fandom. When he spoke with us several weeks ago, telling us he would not be able to attend N4, we were grieved.'"

My thoughts:

This is very sad news. It seems very unfair for George to die just before Worldcon.

My favorite memory of George was when we were discussing a certain Heinlein novel, I think one of the juveniles. I mentioned casually that although it was a juvenile, I hadn't read it until I was in my 20s, after my teens. George replied that he hadn't read it until after his teens either, because it hadn't been written yet.

He will be missed.

Thank you for posting this, Michael. I've passed it onto the MIT Science Fiction Society, where he was a keyholder for some ridiculous number of years. We'll miss him.
I had forgotten that George was active with MITSFS. Thanks for passing the news along.
