Park City, UT - Thomas and Dorothy Lennon had a traditional upbringing in South Carolina, went to school, got married and moved to Idaho to begin their Forest Service career. Their predictable lifestyle ended with the birth of their son, Patrick (aka Packy), in 1964. Tom and Dorothy raced the clock to the hospital as the Chinook winds moved into Northern Idaho quickly melting the winding, snowy roads of February. Thankfully Tom didn't need to use the come-along, 'how to deliver a baby' book, axes or shovels and arrived just in time for the 5-minute birth. That, my friends, set the stage. Patrick was an adventuresome spirit at his core that climbed two-story houses, snuck out of the back of the station wagon window to ride on the roof, and taught himself to ride a bike by taking one to the top of a very steep hill and just coasting down...all by the age of 3. Alaska was his upbringing but Park City, Utah was his heart, pushing the limits of skiing and the outdoor lifestyle was his soul, and the mountains were his church. Educated as a Civil Engineer, Packy began his building career at the age of 14 but transitioned into the film industry as a Lighting Director until retirement. He is survived by his daughter, Harley; son, Kenyan; both his parents and sisters, Sandra and Whitney; as well as his extended family of friends in Park City, LA, Juneau and any Ski Town, USA.

Patrick's Celebration of Life Service will be held in Park City, UT at the Park City Community Church on September 6th at 2pm. Light refreshments immediately following.
