CURELL, John Patrick “Pat”

Born in the family home located at the NW corner of Ethel and Lawson Streets in Kelowna.  Patrick moved to Edmonton in 1950 where he met his first wife and started his family of four. The family moved back to Kelowna in 1962. Patrick was active in sports, a lover of the outdoors, and enjoyed life to its’ fullest. He was predeceased by his parents Daniel and Gladys May, his sister Eileen, his stepmother “Kay”, and his second wife Terri-Lynne.  Patrick is survived by his first wife Liz, and his children Brian Patrick, Robert Daniel (Bettina), Jane Elizabeth (David), and David John.

A celebration of Patrick’s life will be held at a later date.

    I was saddened to read of the passing of “Uncle” Pat. My Dad and Pat, in their day, where known as the “Christian Brothers”. Together they had many exploits both at and away from the KGCC. Pat was one of the “boys”! I will miss a wonderful gentleman and a fine friend of my father’s.
