In the eight short years that we have had the honor of knowing Pat, our lives have been tremendously enriched. From his silly jokes to business smarts and his love of golf, we never tired of hearing his stories. Pat, you fought the good fight. You never complained. You taught us how to be better people and for that, we are most grateful. To Mary, and family. may God keep Pat wrapped in his love. How lucky you are to have had him in your lives.

Dear Mary & Trish!
We just learned of Pat's passing this evening at mass. Had we known, we would have been at the viewing. What a great softball coach and friend. We will miss him and his great jokes (what do you call a girl with one leg, Peg!)
We will get in touch soon and will have a mass said for Pat at St. Joseph the Worker parish.
Dear Mary & Trish!
Just found out about Pat's passing this evening at mass. All our love to you and we will offer a mass for Pat at St.
Joseph the Worker soon.
Had we known, we definitely would have been there.

Pat was a great cousin and a remarkably funny and kind man. He was surely an example to all of us as to how we should live our lives with love. Mary, I can imagine how sad this time is for you, but please know that we are always here for you and your family.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
-from a headstone in Ireland
Pat's kindness was abundant. His love extended to his family, friends and everyone he met along the way.
The last time I saw him, after we said goodbye, he called after me "Kim do you have enough money to get home?"
That is so Pat to be looking out for others even while fighting his toughest battle! We will miss him!
Dad, we will take care of Mary, and each other until we see you again!
To the Family,
May the loving memories of your loved one provide a comfort for you; and be assured that you can see your loved one again in a just and peaceful Paradise. Matt. 5:5; John 17:3
Mary & Family-All of us at The Avalon Golf Club send our Love & Sympathy to you and yours. Pat was a great and Happy Golfer who will be really missed.

Dear Trish (Chuck) and Bob (Alice),
We are very sorry for the loss of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your mother and brother, family and the kids.
Though I did not know Pat personally, I am a friend of his son, Kevin and family. I know he will be deeply missed by all of them, and that he is at peace in Heaven where he will be happily waiting for all of you when you are reunited in the light of God. I will keep him and his loving family in my prayers.
Mary & Family-We are so sorry to hear the sad news about Pat. He was such a super guy and we always looked forward to a hello and a few words exchanged outside of Mass. You were blessed with a great husband and I am sure he is at peace with our Lord. May the love and supportr from friends and family help you through this very hard time.

Mary and family, Pat was was one of the most happy people that I ever knew. May he rest in peace. Cousin Bill Klaus
We are so glad we had a chance to meet Pat soon after Kevin and Kimberly were engaged. On each meeting, he was always so happy to talk to us. What a memory he had for his many stories and jokes. He was such a kind man and will be missed by all. Mary, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
My brother will be deeply missed. We can celebrate his life even as we mourn his loss.
Dear Tricia and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through and I pray for your comfort through all those surrounding you with love in these next few days and in the weeks to come. I pray that you find comfort knowing he is with Jesus, in a magnificent place we can't even imagine. Blessings to all of you.
We send our condolences to all of the Connelly family. Pat was a special person and was loved by so many people. He left a wonderful legacy in his and Mary's family, We are blessed to have his son, Bob, as our son-in-law and to have shared three beautiful grandchildren with him. RIP Pat Love, Jan and Lou
Aunt Mary, Tricia, Bob & Kevin, we'll miss Uncle Pat lots, but we're sure he's playing golf & telling jokes at a family reunion in heaven.
Dear Mary, Its impossible to tell you how sad we are feeling right now because we loved you two for as long as we met you, before you were even married. We shared so many good times together. We have pictures and movies of those good times. I wish we could be with you now but I'm so sorry we cannot travel like we use to. You have a wonderful loving family who will be with you. You are blessed. We love you very much Mary and look forward to when we will see you again.

How sad we are to learn of Pat's passing. Although we didn't know him long, we felt blessed to have had the privelage. Nice guy. Funny guy. Warm and welcoming guy! Gone way too soon. May he rest in peace! He will not be forgotten at the Woodlands at Crow Creek!
Being in Pat's presence was one of the
highlights of my life.He always brought
love and laughs to all that knew him.
Mary, I love you and my deepest sympathy to you at this sad time.
Mary, I am so sorry to read about Pat's passing. You and your family are in our hearts and prayers. With sincere sympathy, Barb and Ron Deffler
If there ever was a man full of joy...it was he. If there ever was a man so full of love for life....it was he.
No words could adequately say how dearly Pat will be missed by so many.
All my love, Carol
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. We will be praying for you all in the weeks and months to come, and seeking God's abounding love and wisdom for your family.
Jon and Janae McLister and Family
To a Father-in-law who taught me to live life- who showed me you can never love your kids too much or your grandkids! My husband, your son, will be lost without you here on earth- we hope you're having a Manhattan and swinging Golf Clubs- xo Alice
Mary, I could always count on Pat for a good joke and a hearty laugh. I was always so proud to say he was my cousin. My prayers and love are with you now. God's blessing to you and all of yours at this sad time. We know Pat is in the glory of God and probably telling jokes. See you soon. Love, Lillian
Mary...my dear friend of many years...we were so incredibly sorry to hear about Pat's passing...we just shared dinner next to each other a few weeks ago at the diner and he looked wonderful, full of his usual jokes! We have so many beautiful and cherished old memories with one another over the years. He was a wonderful man...married to an amazing woman. God bless both of you...All our love, Joe and Diane Rutter
