Patrick was born Dec. 23, 1927, in Nome, where he attended school through seventh grade. He joined the Alaska Territorial Guard. He had lived in Anchorage since August 1972.
He was employed by the Salvation Army, Anchorage Telephone Utility at Fort Richardson and in Anchorage, and Lomens Co. in Nome. He retired from the Salvation Army in 1992. His favorite job was being a crane operator in Nome.
Patrick was Catholic, but also enjoyed watching the Anchorage Baptist Temple and Native Baptist Church on television, as well as "Turning Point" with Charles Stanley. He also enjoyed ivory carving, long drives, picnics with family, and watching old-time movies and Westerns and "The Price is Right." He also enjoyed working the daily crossword puzzles in the Anchorage Daily News. He never missed watching baseball on TV.
His family wrote: "He enjoyed all birthday parties of all his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as all wedding anniversaries. He was a loving family man. He enjoyed the presence of all in-laws and other close relatives, and talking to the friends and staff of Alaska Native Medical Center, especially Dr. Nighswander."
Patrick is survived by his wife, Audrey D. Analoak; sons, Walter and Pat Jr.; daughters and sons-in-law, Greg and Mary Kowaleski, Tony and Patty Bordenelli, Audrey Steinberg and Ron Winkleback, Walter S. and Susan Hawkins, Nancy Analoak, Mike and Karen Ortega, and Sharon Analoak; grandchildren, Kathy, Janice, Holly, Pamela, Greg Jr., Christopher, Annie, Arthur, Alicia, Angela, Percola, Matthew, Terri-Jo, Nicole, Ashley, Shannon, Stephanie, Stacey, Sean, Susan, Cleofus and Karen; and great-grandchildren, Rebecca, Brittney, Moretta, Gabriel, Marcus, Jocelyn, Aiden, Aydrannah and Gabriel.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests American or Alaska flags at the service.
