Memorial Service Video

Hundreds of our friends, families, clergy and (once) strangers gathered on Friday to honor Patrick's life. It was a beautiful service. Thank you to all who came, and to all of you who helped make it possible! I'll attach the video of the service, once I get a copy of it. But, for now, enjoy a 10 minute "slide"show we put together for the service, which played during the prelude. Thanks to my new brother-in-law Heath for putting it together!

Patrick's Obituary

My sweet Patrick’s obituary appeared in the Washington Post this morning.  I will miss him dearly.  Any and all are invited to his Memorial Service, which will be held on Friday, February 3 at 11 a.m. at The Falls Church.  Details on the service are on my previous post.

Here is the obituary from the Washington Post

November 29, 1977 – January 28, 2012 

On Saturday, January 28, 2012, beloved husband of Julie Cate Kelly and devoted father of Cecilia Kelly, cherished son of Timothy and Claire-Lise Kelly, and loving brother of JoAnn Kelly Ward and Christine Maurer. Patrick passed away at the National Institutes of Health after a 7-year battle with lymphoma brain cancer. He is deeply mourned by his family and friends, even as they rejoice in the certainty that he is now fully healed.

Patrick was an accomplished consultant and highly respected by his colleagues and clients. After graduating from James Madison University, he worked at Touchstone Consulting Group for seven years. He further developed his career at Booz Allen Hamilton and Accenture.

A kind and adventurous spirit who lived life large, Patrick was a valued and integral member of communities wherever he lived - including Brentwood, TN, Richmond, VA, Durham and Charlotte, NC and the Northern Virginia area. He was dedicated especially to his church fellowship, most recently at Restoration Anglican Church in Arlington.

A memorial service will be held 11 a.m. Friday at The Falls Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Wilson Cancer Research Fund or the Ceci Memorial Fund. For more information, For more information, please visit and look on the “Memorial Funds” tab.
