Dennis you were truly an" Angel" for our son James. You will be remembered for helping James swim at the Y and helping our family by always being there to say things will be Ok. You were a very special person for the special needs community. Our prayers go out to your family. Lori I am so sorry you lost your Dad. "Suffering ends, but Memories live on." Dennis will be missed.
Gene, Jean, and James
I knew Dennis for many years before my retirement from the Suffolk Cooperative Library System . He was a tireless champion for libraries and a kind man. I am saddened by his loss and extend my sincerest condolences to his family. Rest In Peace.
Dennis was a kind and gentle man with a great sense of humor. Rest In Peace. Our prayers go out to Maryann and Lori
We first met in the early ‘70’s while working at Brown Brothers Harriman. I went to work at the Port Authority in ‘73 and we would met periodically for lunch. Lost touch after awhile until we met again when he became a cop at the PA. Hard to believe.
He was a great guy, always the gentleman with a great spirit.
RIP Dennis old friend
I had the great privilege of working with Dennis over the years at PAPD.
Dennis was always a gentleman -- a great cop who did the job with extraordinary cheer and with the well-earned respect of the public and his colleagues.
Condolences to the family.
Rest in peace Dennis.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
What a special person Dennis was. He always made you feel happier after a conversation. He was a friend to all the staff at Sachem Library and I shall miss his smile and warmth. We were so lucky and blessed to have his compassion and support. He'll always be in my thoughts.
We are sorry Mary Ann and Lori for the loss of Dennis. There are never adequate words for the loss of someone you love so much. In our thoughts and daily prayers.
I will miss his company at the YMCA and the Tap Room. He had the ability to make us laugh and laugh at himself, too. He was an all around good man. I shall miss him.
May you be at peace and resting comfortably in the arms of our Lord.
Dear Mrs. Flavin and family,
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Dennis was a great asset to the Sachem Library and the community. I enjoyed working with him while I was recording secretary for the Sachem Library Board. Sending my prayers to you and your family.
RIP Dennis. You will be greatly missed by all your friends from the YMCA. You were always so kind and thoughtful. With lots of love, Debbie
We at the Port Authority Retired Police, Assoc were very saddened to hear of our good friend and colleague Dennis had passed on. We have fond memories that will live on in our thoughts as we adjust to this news. One of Dennis's greatest traits was the love of family. He would often greet his fellow Officers by saying " How is your family my friend ". He will be greatly missed, and will be in our prayers.
Mrs. Flavin and dear family, I'm so sad hearing about your loss. He was a great asset to the Sachem community...sending prayers and sincere condolences at this time. May Dennis rest in peace with our Lord.
Many memories of you light our path and warm our hearts.
May God grant you peace during these sad days! I have such wonderful memories of Dennis from our days in Flatbush many years ago.
My condolences to the Flavin family.I had the honor of working with Dennis. He was a first class gentleman as well as an excellent Police Officer and Supervisor.
He was a friend to all .
I will miss him.
It's hard to imagine a world without Dennis Flavin. He brought honor to his uniform and was an honest, intelligent and witty man. He was a great friend and always the point man - leading the way to keep others out of harm's way. He knew that all men are created equal and gave everyone a fair shake. If you needed help, he was right there. He took new cops under his wing, making sure they felt welcome and knew the paperwork. I have fond memories of working a busy 3x11 tour at JFK with him, then adjourning to Rasputin's where you could bet he'd order a gin and tonic (lots of ice). The rest of the tour would arrive and he'd hold court, resulting in many yuks. So many of those fine folks are gone and Dennis has joined them in Heaven. Dennis was a man of integrity, who took care of his parents in their old age and devoted his life to his wife Mary Ann and his daughter Lori. They should know he spoke of them often and with great, great pride. Anyone who knew Dennis Flavin immediately liked him and I'm honored to have been his friend. May his soul rest in peace with the Lord. Our condolences to his family. May our memories of sunny days with Dennis remain in our hearts for the rest of our lives.
So sorry for your loss! My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family! ❤️
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
