As a child, he continually won a local radio contest about stamp collecting, said his brother, Thomas Flynn of Bristol. Everything he read, he remembered. "You could ask him a question on almost anything, and he would know it," his brother said. "It ran the gamut from geography, politics and religion. Probably his weak spot was sports, but he'd surprise you there, too." Mr. Flynn was a scientific researcher at Brown University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mr. Flynn was the valedictorian of the Warren High School, Class of 1953, and valedictorian of the Class of 1957 at Providence College, from which he received a bachelor's degree in chemistry, graduating summa cum laude .

His career first took him back to Brown, where he worked in research with John Ross on high-precision measurements of the viscosity of gases. In 1975, he and Ross moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where they continued their research. He and Ross co-authored the textbook Physical Chemistry, with two other authors in 1980. Eight years earlier, he and William Riser co-authored another textbook, Problems for General and Environmental Chemistry.

He also volunteered to edit several science-fiction "fan-zines" and more than 150 books for the association. "He had not great worldly ambitions in terms of wealth, property and fame," Thomas Flynn said. "Remember him for what he was. . . . He was himself. He wasn't beholden to anybody. He did what he wanted to do." Born in Fall River, he was the son of the late George P. and Anna M. (Brown) Flynn Sr. He had been a resident of both Cambridge and Somerville since 1975. Before that, he had lived in Warren, where he continued to maintain a residence. He was a communicant of St. Mary of the Bay Church. He was an avid reader and moviegoer.

FLYNN [Newport RI Daily News, On-line Obituaries Jan 2008] Gaithersburg, Md. - David E. Flynn III, a native Newporter, carpenter, contractor and lifelong recreational and professional sailor, died Tuesday, January 29, 2008 in a room he had built himself for his mother at his home in Gaithersburg, Md. He was 69. Ever the affectionate friend, Dave kept on display in his bedroom his 1943 kindergarten class photo from the St. Clare's nursery school in Newport. Until December 2006 when he was diagnosed with the brain cancer that killed him, Dave ran Flynn Carpentry, which did building maintenance and repairs, mostly on contract with governmental and nonprofit agencies in Montgomery County, Md. The business, which Dave founded, was an outgrowth of his investment in and renovation of houses in the Capitol Hill section of Washington, D.C., where he had once lived, and the pleasure he took in working in the building trades. Previously he had had a long career as a computer programmer and systems analyst with ITT Corp. in New York State and Louisiana and later with the Department of Agriculture in Washington. During a debilitating treatment regimen for his cancer, Dave kept a sense of humor, even making self-deprecating jokes about his condition. In keeping with a gentle nature, he displayed unfailing love toward his family, particularly his wife, Elizabeth Canterbury, who was a devoted and solicitous caregiver until the moment of his death. He always politely expressed his gratitude for the smallest favors as he became less able to do things for himself. Asked how he was feeling, he would reply, “great.” And if someone inquired how a back rub or a small adjustment to his bed felt, he said, “perfect.” Despite the ill effects of not only his cancer but also the surgery to remove as much as possible of the particularly virulent form that afflicted him and other treatment, Dave never gave up. He traveled widely in his last 14 months of life, visiting family in Newport, Virginia and Florida. He and Liz also took a cruise aboard a commercial vessel on the Ohio River. That trip had to substitute for a longer inland river excursion he had long wanted to make aboard a smaller boat. Dave's love of sailing, boats and the water began when he was a child and his paternal grandmother's family owned the former Newport Ship Yard, which was crowded with sailboats during the summers of his youth. From an early age he did such odd jobs as maintenance and cleaning aboard boats in Newport Harbor for pay and the pleasure of being on the water. In 1958 Dave worked as a crewman aboard Weatherly, a 12-meter yacht that unsuccessfully contended for the right to defend the America's Cup that year. Dave sailed aboard her the next two summers. He also made yacht deliveries seasonally between the North and Florida for owners who did not want to undertake the arduous trip themselves. In later years Dave both owned small sailboats and occasionally chartered bigger ones. In 2001 Dave and his daughter Rachel sailed a chartered boat through the Panama Canal. During two recent summers, he hired a sailboat off Jamestown for his children and other family members. Dave was born March 12, 1938 in Newport. He attended the former St. Mary's School at his father's insistence, even after the family moved from the Fifth Ward to Park Holm. He was graduated from the former DeLaSalle Academy in 1957 and from Providence College in 1961. Besides his wife, he is survived by his mother, Mary (Capocchiano) Radice, who never gave up her Newport home to move into Dave's house. He also leaves six children: daughters Susannah, Rebecca and Rachel, and sons, Neil, Andrew and Sean; and a stepdaughter, Kathryn. In addition he is survived by two granddaughters, a great granddaughter and a great-grandson, a brother, Barry, and an uncle, Mike Capocchiano, as well as numerous cousins. Dave requested that his body be lent to a University of Maryland medical school for medical training, so no burial is planned immediately. However, a memorial mass will be said at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, February 2, 2008, at St. Mary's Church on Spring Street, where he was baptized. Relatives and friends are most kindly invited.
