Obituary

On Nov 9th., Patrick Sheehy of Wappingers Falls, passed away at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was 75 years old.

Patrick immigrated to the United States in 1964. He and his future wife, Margaret Desmond, later returned to Ireland to share their wedding with both families. The years sped by. He was a member of the AOH, Division 9 and an avid fan of the hurling and football matches in Gaelic Park. Eventually, the Sheehys, now proud parents of four children, moved north to Wappingers Falls. He owned and operated a plumbing and heating business locally for 35 years. He was liked and respected and known as “someone you can count on”. When he was called at 3am in sub-freezing weather because of frozen water lines or no heat, if it were humanly possible he responded. His customers became lifelong friends and became part of our family-support system during his illness.

Patrick was born in Ballinabearna, NewcastleWest, Co. Limerick, Ireland and was one of eight children of Michael Sheehy and Julia (Collins) Sheehy. He is survived by his brother, Jack in Australia. His brothers, Bill and Timmy predeceased him, as did his sisters Mary, Catherine and Julia. Julia’s funeral took place in Birmingham, England on Nov. 10th. They are all reunited and in the arms of our merciful Lord.

For four pain-filled years, Patrick battled Stage 4 cancer. He did so with determination and with unwavering good cheer. His courage and his innate ability to “always keep the bright side out” provided all who knew him an example of indomitable courage and endurance.

Asked once to describe himself in two words, he said: Catholic and Irish

He will always be forever missed by his wife of 54 years, his children Julia, Catherine, Mary and Colleen, his sons-in-law, Benjamin Biber and Chris Cotroneo, and by his grandchildren, Conor, Tyler, Clara, Sophia and Eileen.

Sadly, because of the dreaded virus, we do not dare hold a public wake. Mass will be celebrated in St. Columba’s at noon on Friday, Nov. 13. The funeral will take place in Ireland.

In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make donations in Patrick’s name to the Hospice Foundation of America (https://hospicefoundation.org/) or the American Cancer Society (https://www.cancer.org/).

The mass was lovely and I am sure your dad was there looking down down on all of you.
Your dad was a regular at our house and a treasured friend of my dad. He would pop around for a cup of tea after dad got home from work, and then sometimes when he was out on his rounds-I can remember telling him the kettle was on when there was one foot on and one off the front step-he never wanted to be a burden, but was always welcome ( and we were always amazed at the amount of sugar he had in his tea).
There was one time I saw his tell tale van pull up and went to the door only to find him running (really running) back down the drive. Evidently , there were 2 garden snakes one in each bush to either side of our front door that your dad did want to make the acquaintance of. I can still picture the back of him with his hands in the air as he ran back to the van- he was yelling but I have no idea what he was saying.
I had the pleasure of seeing him more often as dad helped him out on jobs after his retirement and will always rememe\ber his smile and a wink, and words of advice when asked.
I have no words to express how heavy my heart is at the loss of this wonderful man. May God keep him close, and provide comfort for all of you.

Thank you Debra. Both Pats were great friends and saw each other through many rough spots. Your Dad was always available to help......and that will never be forgotten. Sincere thanks!

I wish I could have been there to just give you all a hug. I LOVED Uncle Pat and have often told friends how he would pick me up at the airport when I got to visit. How we would go for nature walks or how he would drive me around looking at the deer in the evenings. I will miss him forever.
