Noel Flynn (’43)

Noel FlynnFlynn received his bachelor of science in pharmacy from Oregon State College (now OSU) in 1943. After graduation, Peyton Hawes — founder of Pay Less — immediately hired him to work as a pharmacist in the wartime community of Vanport, Ore. In 1944, Flynn entered the Navy as a pharmacist and worked in the Navy hospitals in Camp Adair near Corvallis and Camp White near Medford. After the war, he went back to Vanport for about a year and then began managing a store in east Portland. In 1947, he moved to Klamath Falls to manage a drugstore that would become Pay Less a few years later.

Flynn was vice president and member of the board of directors at Pay Less when the company went public on Oct. 31, 1967. He continued to manage the store in Klamath Falls until 1972, then moved to work out of the Portland office, focusing all his energies on pharmacy administration. Pay Less sold their stores to K-Mart in the mid-1980s, then K-Mart sold to Thrifty Drug. Flynn retired in 1989 before the Thrifty buyout. Eventually the stores were sold to Rite Aid, making them part of a conglomerate of 2,000 stores. However, the Pay Less name was never sold and today it is used by an organization with a different, related business plan.

Noel and his wife Cornelia have been married for 63 years. They have two sons, Jim and Richard. They enjoy spending time with their three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
