I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my cherished friend and respected colleague, the Honorable Judge Patrick Flanagan. On behalf of the men and women of the District Attorney's Office, I offer our condolences to his family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
The loss of such an amazing man is truly a loss for our entire community. Judge Flanagan was as compassionate as he was tough, an extraordinary jurist who was committed to Justice. I held the utmost respect for him and count myself fortunate to have worked alongside him. His kind spirit and thoughtful commentary touched so many of us over the years. I speak for my entire office when I say he was an amazing man with a superb moral compass. His absence in our lives and on the bench will be felt in so many ways.
He will be missed.
Christopher J. Hicks
District Attorney for Washoe County
