Patrick Holden Memorial Fund

Patrick Holden was a loving and devoted father, brother, and son. He was also a loyal and supportive friend to many, always available in times of need to offer a hand or a hug. Patrick was fiercely funny, and his humor was contagious. He was a gifted musician who excelled at every instrument he picked up, and his sweet tenor voice rang out in choirs and a cappella groups throughout his teenage years and into his twenties.  Patrick was also a talented chef who enjoyed cooking for family and friends, though he humbly waved away praise for this and his other talents. He took pleasure in reading about historical figures and visiting museums and attending concerts. Patrick loved good food and good beer and whiskey. He was a passionate soccer fan, a season ticket holder for NYCFC who also supported Chelsea FC.

Tragically, Patrick left us this week and in so doing has left a gaping hole in the lives of so many. This fund is being set up to help his devastated family pay for funeral expenses and other related expenses; surplus contributions will be deposited into an education fund for his sweet children Abigail (10) and William (7).

Please help support his family with a modest contribution, a statement of support for his family below, or both. Patrick’s brother Edwin Holden and his mother Elizabeth Holden will he handling the arrangements.

Wake and funeral information will be posted as it becomes available.
