Patrick Doyle Hall died tragically on October 28th, 2015 at the age of 29. His life was cut short by addiction and a heart too heavy for this world. Born on November 5th, 1985, Patrick was raised in Atlanta but remained fiercely loyal to the family, friends, and sports teams of his place of birth, Chicago. Known affectionately as "P-Man" by his siblings "Megzy," "Doodle," and "Mo," he was surrounded in life by love, humor, and bad nicknames. Patrick brought infectious laughter and an unparalleled emotional sensitivity to every situation and person he encountered. His sense of familial commitment stretched across bloodlines and continents. He will be missed by so many--from Atlanta to Utah, from Chicago to Costa Rica. In the last years of his life, Patrick committed himself to "choose health" and to help others. His work, both professionally and voluntarily, strove to help those who so often go overlooked--the homeless, the addicted, the forgotten. His extended family was blessed to have spent a wonderful weekend with him recently at the marriage of his sister Meagan to her husband Luke. He will be remembered fondly from this time, the happiest and healthiest year of his life. He is survived by his parents, Molly, Chris, and Lauren, sister Meagan and her husband Luke, brothers Matthew and Ryan, grandparents Ellie and Fred, and numerous beloved uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends. A remembrance of Patrick's life will be held on Sunday, November 1st from 1:00-4:00 pm at the Garden Hills Recreation Center (339 Pinetree Drive, Atlanta, Ga, 30305; casual attire) where Patrick spent many happy days as a child. Stories, prayers, and memories will be shared at 2:30 pm. A private burial will be held the following week.
