Dennis L. Patrick, 88, of Burnside, PA went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 26, 2024 from his home, where he was surrounded by his loving family.

The son of Charles L. and Marguerite R. (Young) Patrick, he was born on March 25, 1935 in Burnside, PA.

Dennis was a graduate of Harmony High School.

He married M. “Jane” Stauffer on March 8, 1955. Together they have shared almost sixty-nine years of marriage.

Dennis was a member of the Burnside Bible Church. He was previously a member of the former Burnside United Methodist Church, where he had served as a trustee for many years.

After a fire destroyed the Burnside United Methodist Church building, Dennis was instrumental in negotiating, managing and reconstructing the new church building. For decades Dennis devoted countless hours caring for the church and its grounds, such as helping with the custodial care of shoveling snow and mowing the lawn, as well as always being willing to lend a hand.

From the age of eighteen until his retirement at sixty-seven, Dennis worked as a construction manager in the field of highway construction for various companies, including L R Owen; Interstate Amesite (IA) Construction; Pivarnik Construction; Brown Construction and Putnam and Greene.

A talented baseball player, Dennis was actively involved with the Jefferson County Baseball League and the Clearfield League until the age of fifty-three.

An avid golfer, fisherman, hunter and camper, Dennis thoroughly loved passing these skills on to his grandchildren and creating wonderful memories from their outings and adventures. He absolutely adored his grandchildren.
