Gerald, age 83, went to be with the Lord on Friday, October 1, 2021 with his family by his side. He was a longtime resident of Loranger, LA. Gerald was a proud member of Oak Grove Church of God in Loranger. He was an extremely hard worker who dedicated many years in the printing business and later started his own taxidermy business. Gerald loved to hunt and fish and refurbish antique tractors. He truly had a gift when it came to fixing things and passed that trade to his sons. Gerald enjoyed spending time outdoors and traveling to the mountains with his family. He truly was a jack of all trades and was known to help fix anything for others. Gerald was a proud husband, loving father, and one of a kind man who will be forever missed.
Gerald is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Connie Flynn; sons, Duane Flynn (Terri), Bert Flynn (Toni), Darin Flynn; grandchildren, Justin Flynn, Lacey Flynn, Llana Flynn, Jolee Flynn, Brittany Husser (Josh); and 2 great-grandchildren and one on the way.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Melvin and Philemine Flynn; and sister, Sharon Quave (Jerry).
