Patrique Gagnon

September 29, 1980 – July 29, 2021
It is with broken hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Pat ‘Phatty G’ Gagnon at the age of 40 on July 29th, 2021.
Pat was a man who loved deeply and lived life to the fullest. He was a talented musician who loved strumming a guitar, writing and singing songs. He had amazing skills as a carpenter, helping his friends and family on their projects whenever he could.
He was a sensitive person with a kind heart and loved to chat for hours. Pat was a daredevil with a zest for life and great sense of humour. Whether it was snowboarding, skateboarding, or anything he could do a backflip off of, he loved to take risks.
He was a passionate human who excelled at everything he did. Pat loved deeply, especially his three boys. He was so genuine and full of gratitude for everyone in his life.
Everybody loved him, he made an impression on everyone he met.
Survived by Kyley and his three boys, who were the love of his life. Caiden (mother Brenda), Keenen and Kyren (mother Kyley), his parents who provided unconditional love and support Mike and Jocelyn, parents-in-law Barb and Lance Buttman who were always there for him, brother Matthieu (Deanne) and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Special thank you to everyone in the 12 step program for all of their support over the years.
A memorial will be held for Patrique on August 28th. Please contact Jakua for more details at 1-250-551-0198
