PATTEN, Derek (Derry) Robert
May 27, 1933 - May 15, 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Derry after a brave battle with cancer. He will be forever missed and remembered always by his loving wife, Joan, daughters: Rose (Gastone) and Melanie; granddaughters: Natalie (Damien), Christina (Eric), Rachel (Christian), Catherine and Marita, and his great-grandchildren: Kieran, Claire and Cayden, as well as many relatives, extended family, and friends.
We are profoundly grateful to all those who have kept us in their hearts, thoughts and prayers, during this difficult journey. We also wish to sincerely thank all those who have given Derry dedicated, compassionate care, gentle presence and continuing support: Dr. W. Mair and staff at the Summit Centre Clinic, St. Albert, Drs. Plewes, Joseph, and Mulder and the staff at the Cross Cancer Institute; Home Care nurses and care-givers; and the staff at the Norwood Hospice.
A celebration of Derry's Life will take place at 2.00 p.m., on Thursday, May 23, 2013, at the St. Albert Catholic Parish Church, 7 St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made directly to the Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Avenue NW, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 1Z2.
