Patrick Ramsey Obituary, Death – It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Patrick Ramsey, who left us on the 22nd of August 2023, at the young age of 24. Patrick, affectionately known as Paddy, graced this world on the 19th of April 1999, bringing immense joy to his proud parents Pauline and Kevin. Tragically, Paddy lost his father when he was just 14, an event that marked his journey with a profound sense of loss.
Within his family, Paddy found solace and purpose as an elder sibling to Melissa, Charlize, Paulanthony, Jayden, and Aaron. The love he held for his younger siblings was immeasurable, forming bonds that transcended the ordinary. Paddy’s heart was a repository of care and kindness, always willing to embrace his role as a loving brother, son, and uncle.
In the tapestry of his life, Paddy’s grandparents played an integral role. On his maternal side, he was the apple of Shug and the late Christine’s eyes, while on his paternal side, he held a special place in the hearts of Mary and Sandy Higgins. As a grandson, Paddy radiated warmth and respect, a testament to the values he inherited from both sides of his lineage.
To all who had the privilege of knowing him, Patrick was a cherished presence. His kindness and genuine nature made him a beloved friend, nephew, and grandson. His departure has left a void that words cannot adequately fill, as we grapple with the pain of his sudden absence.
In honoring Patrick’s life, a ceremony will be held to bid him farewell and celebrate his time with us. The community will gather to receive him at St Edward’s R.C Church on Sunday, the 3rd of September, at 6pm. On the following day, Monday the 4th of September, a Requiem Mass will be held in his memory at 9:30am. Following the mass, Patrick will be laid to rest at St Joseph’s Cemetery, where his spirit will find eternal peace.
To continue the remembrance and celebration of Paddy’s vibrant life, his mother Pauline and the entire family extend an invitation to join them at the Gartlea Community Centre. Here, amidst shared memories and stories, we can find comfort and strength in each other’s company.
As we navigate the grief that accompanies Patrick’s untimely departure, let us take solace in the cherished memories he leaves behind. His spirit, much like the anthem he chose, “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” will forever echo in our hearts, reminding us that even in the darkest moments, his presence remains a guiding light.
