Patrick Lindsay 1951 – 2016

Posted By Drake Smith On December 13, 2016 @ 4:53 pm In Obituaries | 8 Comments

With deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of Patrick J Lindsay on December 11, 2016, at the age of 65.  Patrick was born in Nelson BC on March 19, 1951 to Mary and Albert Lindsay.  He attended LV Rogers High School, and continued his education at the University of Victoria.

Patrick is survived by Kathy, his wife of 42 years, sons Tyler and Colin (Alisha); grandsons Felix and Dominic; sisters Adele (Euclid) and Enid-Marie; brothers Mike (Brenda) and Bill (Heather), as well as a numerous nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by both his parents and his brother Phil.

Patrick retired in 2012.  He golfed, traveled, and spent time with family & friends, always engaging them with his great sense of humour.  Sports were always an important part of Patrick’s life whether it be coaching his sons’ little league games, stunning spectators as a “Power Forward” for his local men’s hockey team, or cheering on the Vancouver Canucks from his favorite spot on the couch. As a proud member of Valleyview Overlanders Lions Club, Patrick spent his time helping with many worthwhile community endeavors.

In his later years Patrick lived his life by the simple motto “Lead, follow, or get out of the way” and as the latter two did not apply to him, he led.

Memorial services will be held at Holy Family Parish, 2797 Sunset Drive, Kamloops, on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 11:00am. Condolences may be sent to the family via DrakeCremation.com

In lieu of flowers please send a donation to your charity of choice.

I’m so sorry to hear of Pat’s sudden passing.

As someone who shared his “formative years” in Nelson I have so many memories of him especially his speaking performance at our high school reunion this past September.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him!

Jack Chambers
Nelson, B.C.

Patrick, you will always be my Bg Brother and I will always be your only Little Sister!
As these days pass until I come to Kamloops I remember so many memories that I haven’t thought about in years. Others help me remember in the incredible messages they leave you. I always was secure in knowing if I needed you, you were just a phone call away. You’d come if I asked!!
I can only imagine that you are very busy visiting everyone you haven’t seen in awhile! If I know you, I’m sure you are cooking up a feast and entertaining in only the way you did….
Take care my brother, I’ll see you when I see you!! God Speed ❤️❤️

To Kathy and family,

So sorry for the loss of Patrick, a truly wonderful man. I will forever remember him fondly as one of the best managers I’ve ever had (while working at CFDC). You are all in my thoughts during this hard time.

I am very sorry to hear about Patrick’s passing. I quite often think about my younger years here in Kamloops and Patrick and family are always at the forefront.

I remember watching WWE pay per view with all my friends there and Patrick, without asking, would whip us up chili dogs and nachos and all kinds of things to feed us hungry teenagers. During the holidays I could always count on a few glasses of eggnog and a jovial Patrick humming away in Christmas spirit whenever I would come over. I looked forward to it. Patrick also cared about everyone. He always wanted to know what was happening in your life and his good conversation was shared with great humor.

Kathy, Colin and Tyler. Seek peace in knowing that Patrick was loved by many and his positive influence will carry in in the good that he did with his life. My thoughts are with you always.

I am so very sorry to hear of Patrick’s passing. He was such a lovely man. He was the first staff person I ever met in my new job in 1984. He embarrassed me in front of my new co-workers, made me laugh, and totally put me at ease. He was always quick to help when help was needed. His laughter, humour and kindness always touched me. He was a good man and I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

With much sadness,

Dear Kathy.
I just today heard the news about your husband’s death, and my sincere condolences to you and your family; I regret missing his service last Friday. Although I didn’t know him, I do recall you talking fondly of him on many occasions.
Take good care of yourself.
Fondly, Mary Desaulniers ( formerly Plummer)
