It has been two-plus years since Flynn Robinson passed away. I think of Flynn often; always will. Flynn's U. Wyoming and NBA years are legendary. What may not be well known of this remarkably generous man is his devotion to mentoring others who loved the game of basketball. Throughout his 50s and 60s, playing in men's seniors tournaments all over the U.S., Flynn thrilled teammates and opponents with his dribbling, shooting, assists, and sportsmanship. Whenever Flynn put his arm around another player, as I was privileged to be on the receiving end of numerous times over many years, confidence would soar. At the end of every game--though "the crowd" may have been small, Flynn would stick around, sign autographs, and give tips to kids. Such an ambassador! Such a good man! -"Doc" Brown, Helena, MT
Although it was many years ago, I remember Flynn's playing days and being so quick and quick release. Was much fun to watch him and share the joy of his talents and leadership.
One of my favorite players from the early years of the Bulls. Great memories. Thank you, Flynn
Flynn got me my scholarship at Tennessee State University in Nashville. He was a good dude I learned a lot a great influence in my up bringing..............miss u man love Steven BigSturge Sturgeon
Flynn!!! We will surely MISS HIM! HE is FAMILY to us!!! The every day phone calls, seeing him when we drive up to L.A., coming over the house, just hearing his voice...everything!!!! It's still hard to believe you have moved on.....for us, there is an emptiness that can never ever be replaced but only comforted with all the great memories you have left us!!!! It's so hard for me to let go of someone who means SO MUCH TO MY FAMILY, being my husband's brother and friend and also being Uncle Flynn to our children!!! You have a heart of gold that has touched not only us but everyone else you have been around whether it's family, friends...even strangers!!!! God sent you to us and now we must keep on...I LOVE YOU AND WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH FLYNN!!! so does Chuck! Jonathan, Miles and Caroline!!!! We are blessed to have shared our life with you!!! RIP MY BROTHER!
what a shock to hear of the passing of one of the early Los Angeles Laker championship teams. I can remember seeing Flynn play when he played for the University of Wyoming, and was an all-american. I could tell that he was going to be great in the NBA. The Lakers have had so many great players and am so glad that Flynn is in that category..May the Robinson family be blessed with the love of our savior during this sad time...R..I..P...Flynn
To the Robinson family, I offer my sincere sympathy. Flynn was a gentle soul and a very special man. We dated during our college years, he at UW and me at CSC in Greeley, CO. Rest in peace, my dear friend! Cheryl (Haymarket, VA)

Flynn was a classmate of mine in the Class of '59, Elgin, IL. I honor him for his hard work and career of achievements, and I am happy for the fun he must have had along the way. His acts of generosity to children will be remembered by them forever. His contribution to basketball will never be forgotten. My heartfelt sympathy to you, his family.
My condolences to the Robertson family. While I didn't know Flynn personally I did. play in pick up games at the Lawson YMCA in Chicago where he would swish a jump shot after crossing the center line! No one could guard him.

Flynn Robinson was my Cousin. I called by His nickname "Tickle". The last time I saw Him He told me to stop calling Him Tickle because He was TOO old for the name. But, that is the Flynn Robinson I know, FAMILY.Family values are rare today. The World knew Him for Basketball but, I knew Him has Family. I know you made peace with God, so I will see you again. I will miss you, love, your Cousin Ms. Brenda R. McGruder

I went to the University of Wyoming with Flynn. When he played with the San Diego Conquistadores who were coached by Will Chamberlin, Flynn introduced me to Chamberlin. I considered Flynn a friend, a good person, and a hell of a basketball player. Tanislado (Tony) Garcia
