Those who knew Patrick can’t think of him without hearing his infectious laugh. He would do anything to see his friends smile. His energy and work ethic was second to none. He always made sure to do everything to the best of his ability and was a natural at anything he set his mind to. He enjoyed basketball, playing guitar, anything music related, cooking and being surrounded by loved ones. Perhaps his greatest joy was being a father. Patrick adored Eloise with all of his heart. He passed down his high energy, laughter and sense of adventure to her and his legacy will live on through her.
Our Patrick was goofy, compassionate, brilliant and thoughtful. Our lives will never be the same, but we will always feel fortunate to have known and loved him and to know that he has found peace. A memorial service will be held Saturday August 12th at 10 AM at The United Methodist Church in Whitefish. A celebration of Patrick’s life will be held at the Moose Lodge on 10th Street in Whitefish from 12-4 PM following services. Austin Funeral Home is caring for Patrick’s family.
