Patrick Lloyd Eudy MT. PLEASANT - Patrick Lloyd Eudy's 44 years were packed with the kind of exploits most people only dream about and few achieve. When his twin engine plane crashed during a training flight Thursday (June 20), taking the lives of Pat and flight instructor Robert Ulrich, 69, it brought short a list of achievements that everyone around him expected to only grow longer. As a businessman, Pat was founder and CEO/President of Matthews, NC-based American Broadband Communications, which acquires rural companies providing telecommunications and associated services. He also participated in numerous philanthropies and was widely known for his generosity to friends and others in need. Pat credited proximity to the ocean as one of the reasons he and his family moved to the Charleston area, with homes in Charleston and Kiawah Island. He lived in nearby Mt. Pleasant at the time of his death. Throughout the summer, Pat could be found most Wednesdays on the boat he called "Big Booty" sailing the Charleston-area waters. His passion for sailing and racing were frequently the focus of conversations, with adventures ranging from a sail through the Bermuda Triangle to island sailing in the Caribbean. And when not on the water, Pat could be found flying one of his three planes, recording thousands of flying hours in air travel for business or traveling with his family. But Pat saved his greatest enthusiasm for his family: Jane Rountree Eudy, his wife of 19 years; Mary Alexander Eudy, 13; William Lloyd Eudy, 12; Katherine Elizabeth Eudy, 9; and John Patrick Eudy, 7. They were his greatest joy and he poured his energy and enthusiasm for living into every moment they were together. Pat, who attended Vanderbilt University and the University of North Carolina, also is survived by his mother, Mary Ward Eudy Berini, and two brothers, Bruce Eudy and Keith Eudy, all of whom live in Durham, NC. He was predeceased by his father Bobby Lloyd Eudy and his stepfather Joseph F. Berini. A memorial service and reception will be held at 4pm Wednesday, June 26 in the Carolina Yacht Club of Charleston. Visit our guestbook at charleston
