We are saddened to share the news of the passing of John Flynn, long-time member of RPCVs of NENY. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan from 1965-1967 where he taught English. He was truly a wonderful and humble person who loved to travel and understand other cultures. It was always a pleasure to see John and his wife, Barbara at our meetings/events, and then later on our virtual meetings. John will be sorely missed and we are thinking of Barbara and their family.
