William J. Flynn

December 21, 1930 — April 4, 2023

Dr. William J. Flynn, 92, passed away Tuesday, April 4th, at Santa Marta Retirement Community in Olathe Kansas. Bill was born in Kansas City to William S. and Audrey (Haas) Flynn. He graduated from Wichita East High School, attended the University of Kansas and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry.
