Obituary of Patrick David Gough
Funeral Mass recording https://www.facebook.com/1827604664138075/videos/424854235641324/
Patrick Gough never said “Hello.” A man known for his faith and his great love of family, fudge and cigars always greeted you by saying “Peace be with you.” And, of course, your full name.
Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, could keep Patrick David from getting to Mass. And why should it...if you own a tractor or - as he proved later in life - an all-terrain scooter.
While he often attributed his successful arrival at his appointed service to “Angels” or Good Samaritans, we all knew that it all came down to his steadfast faith and unfailing determination.
If you knew one thing about Pat, you knew that he was “sober.” He always said this with a smile. The joke was that he never drank. But he sure loved a cigar...any cigar.
If you knew anything else about Pat, you knew that he lost the love of his life Theresa (MacIntyre) in 1984 and to the end that love remained as unfailing as his faith. Any conversation with him would include many stories of his life with Theresa - and he spoke of that time like it was yesterday.
He had a large family that he revelled-in and cherished: six daughters and one son, fifteen grandchildren and one great-grandson. And the loss of Pat, leaves them with a sense of loss and sadness - but his life and example also fills them with pride and happiness.
