November 18, 1958 – January 30, 2010

Pat was born in Pilot Mound and spent his school years there. As a youth he was happy and outgoing, and had a number of close friends. Pat's addition to the family menagerie of cats & dogs were some bantam hens. He sold Regal products and delivered newspapers in town. As Pat progressed through school, he developed a passion for military history. He amassed a large library of books on World War 2, and could quote facts on anything from specifications of tanks and planes to the strategies of most of the battles fought during the war.

After failing to qualify for the military after graduation, Pat worked at various jobs in Winnipeg. He wasn't pursuing a particular career, but he always seemed to enjoy the work. He took an interest in whatever he was doing and learned quickly. He was an easygoing and affable character and got along well with his co workers. He spent a few years at Canada Envelope until the owner retired and closed the business

At that time our father was getting older and living alone in Pilot Mound. The family convinced Pat to move back home and take care of Dad. Pat found a job, bought a snowmobile and pretty soon had made a number of new friends. Pat turned out to be an excellent caregiver, and during this time he also became pretty close to Dad. Dad was able to travel to the Pas, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Madagascar, all to visit with his children and grandchildren. He couldn't have made these trips without Pat to assist and accompany him. Pat also enjoyed visiting Aunt Francie and Aunt Jean in Pilot Mound while he lived there with Dad.

After Dad died, Pat continued to work in and around Pilot Mound until an unfortunate industrial accident severed 2 fingers and put him into a long rehabilitation program. During the rehabilitation process, Pat spent lots of time with physio and occupational therapists. He discovered a profession he believed in with passion. At nearly 40 years of age, he went back to school, first to get the appropriate high school credits then to get his degree in Occupational Therapy. He graduated in 2004.

During his time in Pilot Mound and Winnipeg, Pat was close with the rest of his siblings. He loved all his nieces and nephews, and Uncle Pat babysat them on many occasions. We have lots of photos of Pat smiling and relaxing with the nieces and nephews he loved.

Pat loved to cook, and his contribution to family gatherings was his special ribs. They were boiled, marinated in special sauce and then barbequed, and the results were always awesome! He loved to talk about movies, and had an amazing memory for movie facts & trivia. Pat loved baseball – the Blue Jays were his team, and he spent lots of time following their fan sites. He also had a passion for music and had a big collection of blues artists. We attended concerts together with artists as diverse as the Rolling Stones, BB King, and Luther Wright & the Wrongs.

After graduation, Pat took a job in The Pas. He certainly enjoyed his new profession and truly loved helping people. He was a true professional and took his work seriously. After a couple of years in The Pas, an opportunity came up in Prince George BC. Pat looked at this as an opportunity to expand his experience and broaden his horizons.

Throughout his life, Pat made a positive impression on the many people he encountered at work, in school or in the community. He was gentle, kind, generous, thoughtful, intelligent and humorous. He was outgoing and talkative, and got to know his neighbors and people who worked in the neighborhood.

Pat was predeceased by his parents Dr. Helen Cohoe, Dr. Clarence Cohoe and his niece Ashleigh Erin Cohoe.

Patrick David George Cohoe is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by Bother Tom (Lisa) and their sons Robbie, William and Matthew; sister Maggie Gassend (Max) and their sons Blaise and Jeanloup; sister Biff (Randy Giesbrecht) and their son Amos; brother Peter (Joanne) and their sons Brendan and Dylan and numerous cousins and friends.

Pat will be laid to rest in Greenwood Cemetery in Pilot Mound alongside his parents on Feb 20,
