Fr.  John P. FITZPATRICK Obituary
Age 92 Died January 7, 2020 He was preceded in death by his father, Leo Fitzpatrick and mother, Evalyn (Gorman) Fitzpatrick. Ordained at the Cathedral of St. Paul on June 7, 1952, he was active in ministry for over 60 years, serving parishes in the Twin Cities and area suburbs. Father Fitzpatrick enthusiastically embraced the work of the Second Vatican Council and encouraged his parishioners to share church leadership and work for justice. He initiated family-oriented education programs that enabled parents to assume primary responsibility for their children's spiritual formation. He encouraged activities for youth, even soliciting donated ski equipment to provide them the opportunity to go on weekly trips to nearby slopes. His ministry and his life were marked by hospitality and generosity, respect for people and compassion for all their concerns. He loved the Scriptures and music, skiing and the outdoors, lively conversation and a good joke. The memory of him singing "Danny Boy" will remain a fond one for many. Mass of Christian Burial 11:00 AM Friday, January 24 at THE CHURCH OF ST. TIMOTHY, 707 89th Avenue NE, Blaine. Visitation at the church from 10-11 AM Friday. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to St. Stephen's Human Services, 2309 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404 MUELLER-BIES 651-487-2550
