SYDNEY, NS - Cape Breton Regional Municipality's Mayor and Councillors are mourning the passing of their colleague and friend, Darrell Flynn. Flynn was hospitalized on June 22 with complications related to pneumonia.
Flynn, 58, was the owner of Sydney’s Swiss Chalet restaurant. A successful businessman, Flynn decided to enter municipal politics to serve his community and won a by-election in District 10 on December 6, 2014. Prior to serving as a CBRM Councillor, he served with distinction as an elected member of the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board.
"Our deepest sympathies go out to Darrell’s wife Eileen, children Emily Grace and Pat, and family," said Mayor Cecil Clarke. “We are deeply saddened by this sudden and tragic loss of such a good person, in the prime of his life, giving back to his community.”
