Preston was my student in several classes at Akron U. He was curious, insightful, studious, compassionate, and caring. It was my honor to then work with him when he joined the staff at Akron UMADAOP as a counselor, and I have been a member of the Board of Trustees. His loss is devastating to his family, the agency, the Akron community, and to me personally. We've lost a truly good, and great, man. May he rest in peace.

Preston, you memory will always be a blessing to me. I am so proud of what you did with your life. Rest in peace my dear brother.
Rick Hirt left a message on February 22, 2021:
Preston was my student at Akron U for several classes, and I was always struck by his intelligence, his curiosity, and eagerness to learn, but also his compassion and caring for others. When I became a member of the Board of Trustees of Akron UMADAOP, I was delighted and honored that he became part of the team at the agency, eventually leading the counseling team there. His loss is devastating to his wonderful wife, his loving family, to the Akron community, and to me personally. I will miss him dearly.

We send our prayers and condelences to the family of Mr. Preston B. Flinn. He truly was a kind and thoughtful person. We met Mr. Flinn about 5 years ago when our boys were playing on the same basketball team. He was always there for every game and practice. During our last conversation Mr. Flinn had extended an invite for Marcel to drop by to visit Porter and Preston the next time he came home from college. Preston and Porter, he was saddened to hear of your loss., as we all are of your loved one. Mr. Flinn will be greatly missed, as he will forever live on in your hearts.

I had the honor of graduating with a MSW in the same class as Preston & Melissa. Seeing this notice in the newspaper took my breath away. Preston was an honorable man who wanted to help those in need. Melissa and Preston always supported one another and fought the fight. Melissa please except my condolences and know that I am sending prayers to you and yours. I'm just so sorry for your loss. Preston will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees past and present and former CEO Dr.Janiece Mercier Wade and the entire UMADAOP Family we extend our deepest heartfelt sympathy to the family of our beloved friend and colleague. He was a consummate professional who was dedicated to helping others and especially those he counseled...he was also my childhood friend of over 60 years from us growing up on Storer Ave. He will be truly missed but the legacy he left will never be forgotten. May God rest his soul!
