Obituary

Patrick William Gallagher, age 79, unexpectedly joined his parents, Oliver and Ruth Gallagher, and his sister, Audrey Muise, on October 11, 2019 while surrounded by his family in the Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Pat was born on St. Patrick’s Day, 1940, and married the love of his life, Bev Raven, on April 8, 1960. Captain Pat was a commercial fisherman and enjoyed so many things- hunting, fishing, bowling, golf, to name a few. Pat was well known for his organizational skills, whether it was planning golf with a few or many, keeping his tools and shed just so; he could be counted on to always be right. His family was his main priority and our “Mr. Fix-It Guy” will be missed beyond what words can express, here at home and by his winter family in the South. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Bev, his son, Jon (Linda) Gallagher, his daughter Shelley (Mike) Cobbett, his grandsons Adam (Laura), Benton (Dani), Corbyn (Jaime), Travis (Megan), Joshua (Annessa) and his five great grandsons Jace, Chace, Aage, and his two namesakes, Quinn Patrick and Zale Patrick; brother, Gerald Gallagher. A celebration of Pat’s life will be held on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 3:00 PM at the Yarmouth Golf and Country Club. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made for Pat's memorial bench at the Yarmouth Golf and Country Club. As Pat would always say, “See you at 8:08 tomorrow, and bring your quarters!

Bev and Family

I have been trying to form the words to express our family's grief and the admiration of how wonderful and kind people have been. Sharing their memories of Pat, giving us the strength to move forward a step at a time. The celebration of Pat’s life was so humbling, he would have been so proud and in awe of so many of you coming to help us through this tragic time. The notes on Sweeney’s Condolences page, all the messages on Facebook, and the cards are all so beautiful, so many words of comfort. We looked at them slowly and opened a few at a time as they all hold memories of the people that have touched our lives.
For your donations in memory of Pat and towards Pat’s memorial bench, we thank you. The bench will be our spring project and with your help, this bench will be a tribute to the great memories of all the good times that we shared with Pat.
Love Bev and family.

I am proud of the life my uncle Pat led.
He was always funny and fun to be with, Very loved and always loving towards his family.
His passing is of great shock, and will be dearly missed. When I was growing up Pat was always someone I looked up to with great respect and the definition of Role Model.
Sending lots of love.
