Sullivan, Patrick

SULLIVAN

With broken hearts the Sullivan family announces the passing of Patrick Leonard (Sully) on Monday, June 25th, 2018.  Although Pat battled Parkinson's for 22 years and had a number of challenges the past twelve months, his passing was unexpected and sudden.  Pat was born in Moose Jaw, SK and attended St Louis College. He was a fixture at the YMCA in his younger years winning many athletic awards.  As he grew older and discovered his love of cars, he became a bit of a "wild child". It was a "Smokey and the Bandit" era and he certainly gave his parents a grey hair or two.  Pat met his wife, Marilyn Usher, and they were married June 29th, 1968.  They missed celebrating their 50th Anniversary together by four days.  Pat was a welder/pipe-fitter, working pipeline for several years until taking a job at Catalytic Construction at the Belle Plaine potash plant to be home with his family.  He was well-respected in the industry and excelled at his job. Pat never missed a ball game, dance recital, or drum competition. He was proud of his kids and took every opportunity to travel with them.  Motor-homing through Eastern-Europe, cruising the Caribbean, and touring Scotland and Australia were some of the highlights. He even learned to embrace hot holidays in Cuba and Mexico. Pat finally got to the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale, AZ three years ago, which was always on his bucket list.  He loved watching his grandsons' sports and cherished every moment with them. He was predeceased by his father, Roy; mother, Helen; infant brother, Michael; in-laws, Fred and Brenda Usher; and brothers-in-law, Robbie and Gordie. Pat will be terribly missed by wife, Marilyn; daughter, Robyn; son-in-law, Ashley; grandson, Rhys; son, Ryan; grandsons, Ronan and Nolan; brothers-in-law, Harvey (Emily) and Ray (Lynn); sister-in-law, Bev (Dennis); and their families; as well cousins, and many life-long friends.  Pat met each and every challenge with courage and calmness. He never complained, and if asked how he was, he always answered "good". Pat has left a void in our lives that can never be filled.  Life will never be the same. A Celebration of Pat's Life will be held on Tuesday, July 10th, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in the Heritage Inn, 1590 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK.  Pastor Marvin Seaborg will officiate and a private family interment will take place at Sunset Cemetery.  Flowers are gratefully declined. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Pat’s name may be made to the Royal University Hospital Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease, 103 Hospital Drive, Saskatoon, SK S7N 0W8.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
