Pat "The Chief" McGreevy Obituary
McGreevy Pat "The Chief" McGreevy, age 65, of Upper Arlington, passed away Tuesday, October 1, 2013. Pat was a leader, a talker, a source of comfort and love, an inspiration, a go-getter and an over-all "one-of a kind" type of guy. Pat was born in Columbus and grew up in Clintonville, son of the late John (Mac) and Eileen McGreevy. Pat attended Immaculate Conception and Bishop Watterson High School and graduated from North High School. Following, Pat then graduated from The Ohio State University. He worked as a former Lobbyist and also a real estate investor. There were a couple of trademarks that Pat claimed everyone around town knew him by... His white 82' Buick Riviera convertible that he drove around Columbus for over 20 years honking his horn to any familiar face he saw, his gray mustache that he had for 35 years, or his stunning looks as he jokingly referred to himself often as "Dark Handsome Irish - The most handsome man in Columbus". Pat was truly a character and everyone would agree that there is NO ONE else in the world quite like him. If you knew him, you had most likely heard that phrase, "You hear me or You know what I mean" come out of his mouth even if you didn't know what he meantHe had an outgoing personality and never met a stranger. He was a man that had strong values of simplicity in life and truly embraced family traditions. Up until he was sick, it was a known fact that he had never taken time to sit down and take a nap. He was on the go and ready at all times to live his life to the fullest. He was active in the Indian Guides and Princesses. Pat loved the Buckeyes, Columbus Clippers, politics, reading a book in the front yard, traveling, bike rides and hiking. But most of all, Pat cherished the time spent with family, especially his granddaughter Annie. From heaven he will be looking over and will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 34 years, Connie McGreevy; children, Jessica, Ryan and Maggie McGreevy; granddaughter, Annie McGreevy; siblings, Jim McGreevy, Jean McGreevy, Marianne (Mike) Haught, Cathy (Patrick) Eisnaugle and Julie (Colin) Campbell; sister-in-law, Betsy Loeb; brother-in-law, Charles (Maryanne) Loeb; and many other extended family members and dear friends. Visiting Hours where family will receive friends will be held from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Friday, October 4, 2013. Memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, October 5, 2013 at SCHOEDINGER NORTHWEST CHAPEL, 1740 Zollinger Rd. Mr. Jason Barger will be officiating.
