In Honor of Pat Marshalek

Pat Marshalek lost his life too soon, to COVID-19.  Anyone who knew Pat could hear him coming from a mile away as he had the most boisterous laugh and zest for life.  His contagious sense for adventure drew everyone in around him, which was a gift he gave us all, as once you were in his circle - you were apart of his family.  There isn't anything he wouldn't do for anyone.  You could have just met him or known him your whole life and he would have given you the shirt off his back.  He was a second dad to the kids in the neighborhood, a friend to get you out of a jam, and the first guy to stop over every Saturday morning to say hi! He loved his family fiercely, always starting new projects to give them a fun life (as well as all their friends).  From pools to hockey ponds to playlets to bonfires - he would do it all! He loved life, he loved his friends, and he loved to have fun! He didn't get a chance to say goodbye to his family (due to COVID) and so we want to give his family a chance to say goodbye to him by giving them the funds they need to give him a funeral / burial he deserves. Pat (51), leaves behind his wife Gail and four kids (Emily, 20; Grace, 18; Abby, 16; Tyler, 11).  We love you Pat and your memory will forever be in our hearts.
