Obituary of Patrick Gerard Power
August 4th 1952 – October 1st 2021. Today I died peacefully at home with my faithful wife and partner of fifty years, Nancy, and my beautiful daughter, Heather. I will be cremated. My ashes, along with those of my dear son, Matthew, my old friend Jerome O'Brien and my faithful lab, Buster, will be interred in a secret location known only to family and close friends.
“Yeah, I had my share of broken dreams And more than a couple of falls And in chasin' what I thought were moonbeams I have run into a couple of walls. But in looking back at the places I've been the changes that I've left behind, I just look at myself to find I've learned the hard way every time. “
~ Jim Croce
