Patrick Quirk

Patrick Quirk, 70, of Chisholm, passed away on Saturday, Oct.10, 2020, after a brave and hard battle with lung cancer.

Patrick was born on Dec. 1, 1949, in Chisholm. After graduation from Chisholm High School, he went onto become a Master Electrician and joined his local IBEW, to which he remained a member for life. After retiring from his career, Patrick spent his free time going to church daily, being an active member of the Chisholm Knights of Columbus, and spending time with family and friends. His presence was always a welcome one as he cared so much for those around him, especially his grandchildren: Mason, Nicholas, Alex and Jacob, who loved him dearly.

Patrick is survived by his siblings: Frank Quirk, Mary Gramenz, Michael Quirk, Lois Passeri; along with his daughters, Karen, Patricia, and Natalie; grandchildren; and several other loving family members.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Mike and Louise Quirk; siblings: John Quirk, Robert Quirk, Leo Quirk, Daniel Quirk and Helen Kilewer.

Patrick has certainly left his mark on this world and he will be deeply missed by all who loved him and who had the honor to know him. He is in heaven with is parents now, looking down on us all and watching over his children and grandchildren.

May he rest in peace always.
