Patrick Wallace Shorey

October 5, 1953 - October 13, 2020

Patrick Wallace Shorey, 67, a resident of Fort Myers, FL for more than 40 years, formerly of Merrill, WI, passed away Tuesday, October 13, 2020. He was born October 5, 1953 in Merrill, WI, the only child of Wallace and Sophie Shorey, now deceased.

Patrick was of the Catholic faith. He was a firm believer that Jesus Christ was his Lord and Savior.  After the tragic death of his parents in 1968, Pat lived with his Aunt, Uncle and cousin; Irene, Earl and Joe Shorey. Pat was a 1972 graduate of Merrill Sr. High in Merrill, WI.  After high school, he was employed in a local factory.  He met and married Denise and they had a son, Thomas. After his divorce, Pat moved to Milwaukee for a short time before settling in Fort Myers, FL where he was employed in the roofing and building industry. Pat joined the Cape Coral Fire Department in 2007 where he stayed until his retirement in 2018.  He made many good friends in the Fire Department and always spoke very highly of everyone there to his cousins (almost brother and sister-in-law) Joe and Marilynn. 

Pat will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by all.

Special thanks are owed to the leadership of the Cape Coral Fire Department and to Leigh Savoy for their caring hearts and help in making Pat’s final arrangements.  Also, many thanks to Shannon, the owner of Mullins Memorial, and his staff for their compassionate care and professional assistance. 

He is survived by his cousin, Joseph Shorey (Marilynn) of Sobieski, WI; and many other cousins in the Merrill, Tomahawk and Madison areas of Wisconsin. 

Patrick was preceded in death by a son, Thomas Shorey; his parents, Wallace and Sophie, and his special Aunt and Uncle, Irene and Earl Shorey.

No formal services are planned at this time.

Memorial Contributions in memory of Patrick Wallace Shorey are suggested to The Fort Myers Fire Academy Scholarship Fund, 4312 Michigan Ave., Fort Myers, FL 33905.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
