Obituary of Patrick Robert Moran
On Tuesday, January 26th, 2021, at age 66, Patrick Robert Moran left this life for the next.
Born March 5th, 1954 in the Valley of Syracuse, New York, Pat was always the life of the party. He was a graduate of St. James Elementary School, Central Tech, and SUNY Canton. He attended Arizona State University and was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He spent his days as a sheet metal worker starting in Phoenix, Arizona and moving to Local 88 in Las Vegas, Nevada where he lived with his girlfriend, Tasha King. He served on the E-board for the Local 88.
Pat was an avid outdoorsman who was always in Converse All-Stars. He cheered for the Green Bay Packers & New York Yankees and enjoyed spending time with his siblings, cousins, and nephews/nieces. He loved his family fiercely and never missed a family vacation or reunion - especially in Key West, FL. Like his mother before him, Patrick was blessed with the gift of gab and enjoyed lengthy & lively conversations. He kept good friends from all his adventures and visited with them often. He always had an infectious smile and told a great story. He was never the first one to leave a party. While he made his home elsewhere, he always had a seat waiting for him at Pfohl's or the Valley Legion.
Patrick is predeceased by his parents, Thomas L & Phyllis A (Moore) Moran, as well as his nephew, Barry Patrick Moran and sister-in-law, Kathleen (Barry) Moran. Patrick is survived by his girlfriend, Tasha King; brothers: Michael (Karen) of Baldwinsville, Joseph of Jamesville, Daniel J of Apache Junction, AZ; sister Maureen "Rene" Rice of St. Petersburg, FL; nephews: Bryan J, Daniel G, and Andrew J Moran, Matthew J, Christopher N, and Timothy P Rice; and nieces Megan M (Nate) Collins and Dannell A Moran: great-nieces Taylor and Delaney Rice, Chloe Collins, and Juliet Moran; aunts Joyce Moran and Susan Moran; and so, so, so many beloved cousins.
Patrick's life was celebrated with a viewing at Palms Mortuary Northwest, Las Vegas, NV with a celebration of life for friends and family.
