Thomas Patrick “Pat” Fernane passed away unexpectedly on Monday December 2nd at Holland Christian Homes in Brampton.
Pat will be forever missed by his loving wife of 62 years, Marjorie, and his proud children Mike (Sue), Maureen (Neil Rounding), and Paul. His four grandchildren Keri (Dave), Stephanie (Sean), Greg (Claire) and Jamie carry memories forever. And the newest addition, great grandson Max, brought a smile to a happy great grandpa. He will also be remembered fondly by his brother-in-law Barry Bradbury of London Ontario ( sister Patricia predeceased).
Pat cherished his faith, family and friends. He often recalled days on the farm in Proton County, moving to Toronto and meeting his bride. His entire career was with Bell Canada, finishing 38 years with a company that brought many friends. His days as a young father were spent at hockey, lacrosse and baseball games, cheering on his kids. He enjoyed family camping trips to Kilbear and upon retirement he and Marj enjoyed travelling in Europe and exploring North America in their RV. Pat never passed up a game of cards and had a passion for bridge.
We all remember him showing off his garden proudly to the grandkids, sharing a story of a great deal he got and supervising any job to make sure it was done right.
