It is with heavy hearts that we announce the recent passing of beloved former Headmaster of Rocky Hill School Alan F. Flynn, Jr., husband of Emi Flynn and father of Alan ’85 and Sarah ’86. Alan served as Headmaster from 1975 to 1991.
Rocky Hill School flourished under Alan’s leadership. He oversaw the construction of the Campbell Center and the Hale Science Center, and grew the student body, more than doubling the size of the senior class. Known for his dedication to his faculty and students, Alan was recognized in 2004 when the newly constructed Upper School was named in his honor. He will be missed.
A celebration of Alan’s life will be held at the St. Giles Chapel in Asheville, NC on September 4 at 10:00 a.m. A memorial service in Rhode Island is planned to be announced at a later date. Click here to read Alan’s obituary.
