It is with sadness that the family of Patrick Joseph Coyle announces his passing at the Foothills Medical Centre on Friday, December 31, 2004 at the age of 84 years.
Born on the family farm at Cranagh, Co. Tyrone, Ireland on March 19, 1920. Pat spent many years at the Oil Sands Projects, in Ft. McMurray before retiring to Red Deer to help his long standing friends Vince Clarke and family with their business. Pat finally retired to Calgary to be closer to his sister Anne’s family where he was a much beloved uncle.
Pat was predeceased by his parents, Paddy and Alice Kate in Ireland; brothers, James in Lancashire, John, Peter, and Bill in Australia, Brendan in Chicago, and Charles in Ireland. Pat’s surviving family, Kathleen, Mary, Gerry, Anne, and Brian, and their families all share fondest memories of a kind and generous brother and uncle who cared deeply for his family and friends, and whose leaving brings a terrible sadness to all our hearts.
