  •        “John was a wonderful, loving person who touched many people,” John Patrick Flynn’s brother, William Flynn, said.

           Mr. Flynn died on Nov. 20 at Glen Cove Hospital. He was 59 and had Down syndrome.

           The Flynn family had a summer house at Maidstone Park, an area of East Hampton that he greatly enjoyed, exploring Folkstone Creek and the Cox’s Fishing Station that was there at one time and the tidal edges of Three Mile Harbor, his brother said.

  •        Patricia Bunce, a resident of Cosdrew Lane in East Hampton for many years, died at home in Lady Lake, Fla., on Nov. 7, “comforted by family after a brave battle with cancer,” her family wrote.

           She was born Patricia A. Needham on March 30, 1936, in Queens to Arthur Needham and the former Johanna Tolis, and met her future husband, Albert J. Bunce, on a blind date. The two were married for 61 years and had five children: a daughter, Robin, and four sons, Michael, Kevin, Keith, and Bruce.

  •     The Choral Society of the Hamptons will present “In Terra Pax” on Dec. 8. The program is named for Gerald Finzi’s piece of the same title, which mixes the verse of Robert Bridges, a British poet who died in 1930, with the Gospel of Luke. In passages the voices mimic the sound of church bells. Other works include Ralph Vaughan Williams’s “Fantasia on Christmas Carols” and compositions by Cecilia McDowall and Peter Warlock.

  • Return of the Lit Lunch
        Chris Knopf and Christina Haag will pull up chairs and clink silverware at this year’s benefit authors lunch at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor on Dec. 8. The noon to 2:30 p.m. meal comes courtesy of the Friends of the John Jermain Memorial Library.

        That library, of course, isn’t alone in undergoing a renovation and expansion, it’s just that in this case it’s been nigh unto interminable, perhaps making a celebratory lunch all the more so.

  • Amagansett

    A black Apple iPad in a gray case was reported stolen from a house on Meeting House Lane late last month. Margaret Eichhorn told police that she had brought in four men to remove unwanted furniture, including a couch in the living room. After the men left, she realized that the iPad, which she said had been next to the couch, was gone. Police said they interviewed the workers, from 1-800-GOT-JUNK, and all four denied seeing or taking the tablet, valued at $799.
