Patrick Neal O’Brien, 57, was welcomed home by the good Lord on the early morning of St Patrick’s Day. Husband, hero, Dad, and son departed this fine green earth in the wake of a
hard fought battle against the Chinese virus. He was born in Grinnell, IA before moving to Corpus Christi, TX with his family at the age of four. He would eventually end up living in Flour
Bluff where he graduated in 1981 but not before meeting his very soon-to-be wife. He had an easy laugh, was quick-witted, selflessly committed to his family, and the hardest working man
alive. Pat’s love and dedication to his family were almost surpassed by his love for his river property in George West or his favorite red & white fishing lure. There was not a stranger
anywhere that was not aware of his enjoyment of fishing, hunting, and gardening. He could catch a fish anywhere & anytime; he knew how to shoot a deer from his bathroom window and would never be able to grow enough pepper plants. He impacted and influenced countless lives and loved ones throughout his life. Sir’s easy manner, cracking jokes, and infectious positive attitude will be missed by so many friends and family.
He is preceded in death by his brother Robert “Bobby” O’Brien and fishing partner in crime, Mike Schreck.
He is survived by the love of his life and high school sweetheart Denise O’Brien, his six wild kids Patrick & Kristen O’Brien, Brenna & Dale Dommert, Ryan & Emily O’Brien, Caitlin
& Tommy Eyler, Regan & Carl McPike, and Tyler & Nicole O’Brien along with twenty-two crazy grandkids (too many to name) as well as his mother and stepfather, Ann & John Carson,
two sisters, Teri & Mike Scarborough, Wendy & Daniel Wilson, and brother Jay O’Brien.
