Ned G. Flynn #2083
How many of you have ever needed a lawyer at least once in your personal
or professional life? Well, as you know, your lawyer can be your best friend
when he agrees with what you have done. Or he can be your worst scold
when you mess up. Ned has been really busy lately, really busy! But
whatever, he is our lawyer. He has been our lawyer for more years than most
of us can remember (actually since February of 1979), and like all fellow
ALPCA members he is "family".
Ned was born October 20, 1945 and joined ALPCA in 1975. Ned received
his bachelor's degree at Yale where many world famous leaders have been
schooled. He was one year ahead of President George W. Bush. Ned served
in the United States Air Force and saw the world. How do you think he got
all those plates? In 2010 Ned took on another club task as National
convention chairman. How many jobs does one man need? Husband, parent,
lawyer, Ivy League alumnae, veteran, plate collector, traveler, former
Pennsylvanian, current New Yorker; the list is endless. In addition to all of
this Ned is a great guy, a good collector, and a true booster and builder of
the club. For many years Ned hosted one of the most fun meets of all, high
up in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, where he had grown up and lived
forever before meeting his bride and moving away. Ned has been by our side
and at our backs throughout; in situation after situation, always providing
wise and steady counsel; supplying a service that is vital to managing a
corporation like ALPCA. But he has always been in the background of
things, never complaining, never seeking credit or recognition and best of all
-- NEVER BILLING! (As far as I know).
I could go on and on but I'll stop since I know Ned will be his humble self
and correct any mistakes reported herein. Respected collector and fellow
Hall of Fame member Verdon Rustine calls him a square dealer and true
mentor to all who seek him out. What better testimonial could one ask for?
Welcome to the Hall of Fame Ned Flynn.
