Patrick Finley Obituary
Patrick Thomas Finley entered into Heaven on June 3, 2011, to reunite with his parents, Marjorie Culbertson Finley and Dee Solon Finley and his best friend William Wells. Pat was born in Fort Worth, Texas on November 12, 1952. Music was Pat's life. As a child he was a member of the Texas Boys' Choir and performed in several musicals, including The Music Man. After graduating from Paschal High School, Pat attended Trinity University where he received his Bachelors and Masters Degrees. Pat was a talented musician who performed as pianist or musical director at the San Antonio Theatre Coalition, Alamo Street Theatre, Harlequin Dinner Theatre, Josephine Theatre and the San Pedro Playhouse. He was active as an accompanist and performed with many San Antonio vocalists and once accompanied Mel Torme in Los Angeles. Pat played at San Antonio Country Club for many years and most recently at Bethany Congregational UCC. Pat was a wonderful teacher who taught piano to hundreds of children and adults in San Antonio over the past 35 years. He also served as a member of the faculty at Our Lady of The Lake University, Trinity University, and St George Episcopal School and was a member of the Musicians' Society of San Antonio and the Music Teachers National Association. He is survived by his brothers, Dee S. Finley, Jr., and his wife Becky, and Robert C. Finley and his wife Harriet, and by his cousins, nieces and nephews and will be dearly missed by his family and many friends, who all loved him more than Pat could have ever realized. In lieu of flowers, donations to the College of Music at Trinity University are appreciated.
