City of Death

Santa Barbara

Pat, a proud Irishman, was raised in Montecito attending Mount Carmel, Guadalupe, Bishop Diego, and Plumbing Apprentice School. Pat used his plumbing skills to help friends, teach apprentices, and to volunteer at the Santa Barbara Zoo and Habitat for Humanity.

Pat met Patty cruising State in 1960. They were married in 1965 and loved family life, camping and waterskiing with their children. Pat was happiest when he was with Patty, all the kids, and had a puppy by his side. His kids, Pam and Tom, Kathy and Kash, and Michael and Maria were his pride and joy. Nine precious grandchildren, Alexis, Tyler, Jessica, Robby, Hannah, Christina, Jenna, Laila, and Emily, arrived stealing his heart, making treasured memories. Pat leaves his great grandbaby due in October, his sister-in-law Barbara, his nieces and nephew, Sharon, Bruce, and Marissa, many loved ones, and friends. Sharing cherished memories of his childhood with family and lifelong friends David, Tote, Jimmy, Fred, and Dave, among others, always brought him happiness.

In the heavenly stars, Pat is now holding his baby grandson, Evan, and is surrounded by his parents, Martin and Agnes, his sister, Barbara, infant nephew Mark, and Eula and Chet, Patty’s parents. When Pat left us briefly once before, he told Michael that he had gone home and was climbing the steps to the old house. Now, Pat leaves us with the beautiful thought that he is at peace, going home to walk up the long driveway, and climb the steps to his beloved home on Mountain Drive. In remembrance of Pat, please always have a kind and loving heart. Our wish for him is “…peace of the running waves…the shining stars…the quiet earth…and the gentle night….” Sleep with the angels, Grandpa Pat, we love you.
