Thought that some of George's family and friends
may not know that George's love of radio and film
started way back in 1963-64. Back than George and
I used to create scenes for movies we hoped to make.
Taped our own radio shows that we made relatives
listen to (we did get good reviews!), constructed
a TV set to make our own horror film intro program,
scripting, blocking and having a grand time.
In 1964 George filed the required papers and
started GRF film productions. Our first and last
attempt to make a movie, involved going into Manhattan,
talking a motion picture rental house (ABC camera
rentals) into renting a 16mm sound on film camera,
tripod, light meter to 14 year olds, and purchased
400 feet of BW film.
We than spent a weekend filming our short. Sadly,
the results were GRF films ran out of money and
we had 400' (a & b rolled) of really
terrible footage and a box of business cards.
George was one of the two best friends in my
life, the other my wife Claudia. He was one of the
few who went on to spend his life doing what he
had hoped he would do when he grew-up!
While I have not seen or spoken to George since
1970, I have and will always remember him.
hope that I am not premature with this email but I feel compelled to
ask for your prayer and support for the family and friends of George
Flynn. This great friend and gentle giant of a man in spirit, in love
and in soul has left us this morning to return to his heavenly home and
be nurtured by the love of our heavenly father.
am at a loss as to what to say here except to tell me of my deep
respect and abiding love of George Flynn. He is and always will be my
Please join me in prayer and support of Jeanie, Val, Ian and Rita in the days to come. I know that we all love them so very much.
Good bye George, I will see you soon on the other side.
Hi Val, Ian, Jeanie,
I can't express how much George has meant to me throughout our friendship.
I want you to know that I'm here for you if you need any help over the
next few days. Please don't hesitate to call.
Love you guys very much!!!
I am so sorry to hear about your loss today, you and your family are in my thoughts
and prayers. George will be missed so much, I am honored to have had the
opportunity to meet and get to know him and you during the production of Tengu.
Please let me know when his services are, I'd like to pay my respects.
Take care during this tough time - if you need anything let me know.
I just heard of your father's passing. Please know how much I love and
respect him. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family during
this sad time. I hope it is O.K. to call tomorrow. Please let me know if
I can do anything for you and your family.
We left a message for you and your family. Brad called and told us
that George had passed away. We just want you to know how sorry we
are. Your father was truly the most giving selfless person we have ever
met. He was always doing things for other people and didn't take
anything in return. His kindness was amazing and he was a beautfiul
We will hold you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
Ralph and I would like to make a donation to help your family or
organization of your choice. Please let me know where I can send the
Lots of love,
Dear Jean, Val, Ian and Rita,
I am so sorry to hear the news
about George's passing. George was someone that I always admired for his
devotion to his family, friends, and God. George was someone that told a
good story and could make people laugh. George had a way of
demonstrating his convictions and beliefs through the way he lived his
life that was effective in teaching others to do the same. His love of
his family was evident, and I know that you all miss him very much.
George clearly was a man that any woman would be proud to have as a
husband. My prayers are with you as your journey continues without him.
Though we know that this is God's will, the void in your life must feel
enormous. I pray that you can give your worries to the Lord and trust
Him to take care of all your needs.
Val and Ian, you have lost
your father. I know how that feels as I lost mine too. It's almost
impossible to consider life without him right now. Your father was a man
of character. He stood for something and he cared about others. He will
be a tough act to follow. I pray that you will be able to honor his
legacy through your lives in the future.
"Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you." John 16:22
I will keep you all in my prayers. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. May God bless you all and draw you close.
There are simply no adequate words to express how
much your dad meant to me, how sorely he will be missed, and how much my
heart goes out to you and your family right now. I cannot imagine what
you must be feeling, and please know that I am available to help with
whatever you may need....truly.
While I am deeply, deeply saddened by his passing - so early in
life, I feel - I know he would want us to go on with our chins held high
and laugh as only he could laugh...so freely and so often.
I send much love and light to you, Val, and look forward to our paths crossing again soon.
All my VERY BEST to you, dear one,
Dear Jeanie, Val, Ian and Rita,
My deep and heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. George was a
great friend, and he will be remembered with love by all those who knew
him. May God's peace be with you.
Val and Ian,
I am deeply saddened by this news. I consider
George a friend and mentor, and have always enjoyed the time we spent
together, either working, or just catching up.
When I first came to
Denver, George was one of my first mentors. I remember, and often
repeat some of the things he said.
I remember him saying that people
will tell you how low your odds of making it in this industry are. But
what they won't tell you, is the longer you last, the more you learn,
and the more experience you gain, the more valuable you become.
people don't make it that far, their lives get in the way,
or other things draw them away, but those who persevere, and keep
learning and improving become rare, and valuable, and those are the
people who do succeed in
this difficult environment.
George's advice and insight have often
buoyed me when my frustrations have weighed me down. I also remember
the advice he gave me regarding working on a project for Hospice. He
said that this was one of those projects that is truly worthwhile, the
rare project which you can be truly proud to have been a part of.
Although I have paraphrased these pretty liberally, I have taken his
advice with me, and have passed it on to others. I have looked for
those projects he was talking about, and tried to make my own projects
truly worthwhile as well.
George's influence and insights have meant a
lot to me, and I will continue to carry them with me through my
journeys. I am sad to hear of his unexpected passing, and to know that
our paths will not cross again. I am deeply heartstricken, and my heart
goes out to you, and his other close friends and family.
Your dad was a man I
respected and admired, and who I miss already. I am sorry for your loss.
