Chief Petty Officer Sean Michael Flynn, U.S. Navy SEAL, 36, peacefully passed away of cancer on Feb. 1, 2009, in his home. Sean was born and raised in the Village of Suffern, N.Y., playing Football, Lacrosse, and Hockey for Suffern HS (Suffern Central SD).
He moved to Virginia Beach in 1997 after joining the U.S. Navy. Sean was a highly decorated Special Operations Chief who had earned 3 Bronze Stars with Valor and other numerous awards. Chief Flynn loved sky diving and was a certified advance freefall instructor, tandem master, and an avid free flyer. He had been on a long list of life or death missions, but it was Rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft-tissue cancer that claimed his life.
In 2011, the New Jersey Transit train station in Suffern, NY was dedicated in the memory of Chief Sean Flynn.
Sean was a true hero and his country will long remember his valor. 🇺🇸
