The life and legacy of Patrice R. "Trice" McElroy

Patrice R. McElroy (fondly called Trice or Kool-aid) was what most would call a gentle giant, he was a jokester and had an infectious personality. He either liked you or he didn't. Patrice departed this life unexpectedly on May 19, 2023, at the age of 41, peacefully.

In 2007, Patrice decided it was time to relocate back to Boston with his mother, after being gone for 8 years. Once back in Boston, Patrice reconnected with childhood friends and family. He held a security position at Breezeway Bar & Grill and then became a manager at Sprint. During this time Patrice met the love of his life, his wife Iris, and they would go on to start a beautiful family and life together.
