Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Patrick John Searcy born December 26, 1961 died January 23, 2020 (he wanted to remind everyone he was 58 not 59). A visitation will be held 5:00 – 7:00 PM, Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at Heartland Cremation & Burial Society, 6113 Blue Ridge Blvd, Raytown, Missouri. A memorial will follow at 7:00 PM. Graveside services will be held 11:00 AM, Thursday, January 30, 2020 at Floral Hills East Cemetery, Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Pat died of Small Cell Prostate Cancer. Apparently, less than 1% of all prostate cancer patients actually have prostate cancer turn into this. He would probably say he earned his 1%ter patch for his motorcycle jacket. We all know how he liked to tell stories.
Pat would like to let you know that his work here is done. He finally gets to take that trip he’s been planning for months now. This is a trip from which he will not be returning. This trip comes with a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. His new mission takes him to a wonderful place where he will be socializing, bowling, and drinking beer to his heart’s content. Laughter and love are guaranteed. Beer is cold, and you never get served the “mean beer”. The rivers are always perfect for canoeing; the lumber for his projects are never bowed; and the smoker always produces the best meat. As a super bonus, there are no smoke detector batteries that ever need replaced at 2:00 AM.
He left detailed instructions for his wife and children to carry on his mission here, which has now been completed. Low adherence to this instruction will not be tolerated. We bet money he’s telling the master carpenter just how to do things.
We want to let him know that he did a great job and wish him a safe journey. We will remember his smile, his warmth, his energy, his love for life, family and friends, but also, colleagues and clients, many of whom over time also became friends. He worked very hard all his life and gave his time generously up until the very end. He made a difference in the lives of many. Patrick leaves behind all of us (his words not ours). He also leaves behind his pain, worry, and sadness. We invite you to join us and celebrate together.
