passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2015 surrounded by his loving family.

Pat was born in Rochester, NY and spent his childhood in Caledonia, NY and Geneva, NY. He was predeceased by his parents, Richard F. and Mary Lou Cullinan.

Pat was dearly loved by his wife Donna of 33 years and his children – Sean and wife, Samantha, with baby on the way; Meghan; Scott, and Sarah with fiancé, Thomas Kropp. Pat was also loved by his Aunt Mary Cullinan, Brother Terry (Michael) Cullinan and sisters Meg (Read) Dahl; Beth (Gary Spindler) Cullinan; and Maura (Paul) Wenger.

Pat was a leader to all and spent his career coaching men’s lacrosse. He initiated the program at Glen Mills School, then moved to West Chester University(15 years), Saint Joseph’s University(8 years) and finally, during his illness, to Downingtown East High School. He touched the lives of so many through his coaching and leaves a legacy of friends and coaches to follow in his footsteps at various schools in the area. Pat won many coaching awards, however, he was most proud of the lives he touched through coaching. Pat loved spending time with family and friends and also the quiet time of fishing and gardening.

He was a member of both Saint Agnes Church and First Presbyterian Church of West Chester.
