January 3, 1944 -May 3, 2023
With deep sadness, we announce the passing of Patrick in the early hours of May 3, 2023. Patrick was 79. He was born to Thelma and James Lee in Kingston, Jamaica, January 3, 1944. In the 1970s, he emigrated to Vancouver, British Columbia, then moved to Ajax, Ontario in the early 90s.
Patrick is predeceased by his brother Carleton and sister-in-law Cynthia, and sister Dorothy Williams. He will be greatly missed by brothers Lester (wife Catherine) and Richard (wife Lynn), brother-in-law Justin, his many nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand nephews, and godchildren.
Patrick had a big heart with a thoughtful and generous nature. He was the quiet person in a crowd, but filled conversations with his wit and humor. He had a full and busy life, but always thought of others and never hesitated to volunteer his time at the Tsung Tsin Association of Ontario. Patrick loved travel, vacationing on the beaches of the Island of Hawaii, swimming, cooking, gardening, and playing Mahjong. His life was centered around his strong love for family and his treasured circle of Jamaican and Trinidadian friends.
Patrick’s family extends their appreciation to Lakeridge Health Ajax Pickering Hospital and Lakeridge Health Oshawa Hospital for the compassionate care he received.
Visitation and viewing was held at McEachnie Funeral Home (28 Old Kingston Rd, Ajax), on Thursday, May 11th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. A Funeral Mass was celebrated at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, on Friday, May 12th at 11 a.m. Cremation.
Memorial donations may be made to Save the Children Canada, Humane Society of Durham Region, or the Canadian Cancer Society.
