Patrick Sean Welsh
Patrick loved to laugh, one of my earliest memories of Patrick was when he spoke his first word “DA-DA”, Pat’s mom was determined to teach him to say MAMA but Pat would just shake his head NO, laughing uproariously saying ….” DA-DA-DA-DA”.
He was very athletic as well, even from early on. When he would wake in the morning in his crib with his empty bottle and see his mom and dad fast asleep in bed, he would hurl his empty bottle across the room with pin point accuracy, hitting me in the head to wake me up and get him a fresh bottle, jumping and laughing as I rubbed my head and laughed with him.
Pat loved his mother dearly and his brothers and sisters, the most important thing in Pat’s life was his family.
Patrick grew up in the Allentown area of PA with his mother Michele, his siblings, Lillian, Alexis, Alexander, Natasha and Tony. He would recall with great fondness all of his happy times there with his family growing up.
Patrick was very athletic and won himself a track scholarship to Temple University where he studied to be a dentist. As all of us know Patrick would always remind us how good dental hygiene was of the utmost importance. He enjoyed his time in college especially going to frat parties with his sister Alexis who attended a nearby college.
Patrick’s greatest joy in life was his children. When he first moved down here to Florida to live with me his only regret was being so far away from daughters Jazmine, Jaydah and Janiah whom he loved dearly.
When his son William was born Patrick was bursting at the seams with pride and joy as he built his life down here with his loving fiancé Sarah and little William, he began to once again feel his life was full. He enjoyed his home life with Sarah and William immensely and then when little Cassidy was born, well she just stole his heart away immediately. His family time with Sarah, William and little Cassidy was the most important thing to him, he valued and enjoyed that more than anything.
Patrick was so happy when he found out he had another daughter, Hailey and was so excited and nervous to meet her when she came down here to Florida for a visit. He was very proud of the young lady she was becoming and loved her dearly.
Patrick was also excited to finally meet his brother Devin from New York for the first time during a visit down here.
Patrick enjoyed cooking for his family and his thanksgiving dinners were legendary, he was loving known as Chef-Boyardee within the family. Patrick loved his grandmother “YIA-YIA” and his Uncle Tommy, he would visit and spend time with them as much as possible.
Uncle Tommy recalls Patrick had “The smile and confidence of Tiger Woods, the smoothness of Will Smith and the left cross of Connor MacGregor”, but his most charming and endearing quality by far was his love for his family and all of us. For that and more I will love you always Patrick.
Patrick really enjoyed his times with Uncle Tommy and me when we would hang out and rip on each other. Also the many times with me and Tito, either at my home or Tito’s just having some laughs and working on his bike. Pat loved Tito and his family as part of our family.
Patrick loved to ride his motorcycle and of course his Dallas Cowboys. He would have Sarah, William and Cassidy wearing Cowboys jerseys for the games and even of course a Cowboy jersey for his dog “Dallas”. People could hear Patrick’s enthusiastic cheers for his team from outside as they passed on Sundays.
In ending Patrick was a beautiful soul who enjoyed his life to the fullest. He loved and was loved immensely and will be missed sorely beyond all words.
Rest in peace until we meet again son.
I love you, Dad.
