God, life, the greater intelligence gave witness to the departure of our beloved brother in the early hours of April the 16th, 2014 in the aftermath of a lunar eclipse. Patrick, the warrior he was, had succumbed to mental fatigue; had fought his last battle on the world stage. Patrick was delivered into the world 50 years ago with a legacy of Acadian, Scottish and a dash of Irish blood in his DNA. Patrick’s acts of love and compassion are as humble as they are far-reaching. He has served in soup kitchens, served as a life-line for his best friend of 20 years who was housebound, and served as the third adult in helping to raise his sister’s three wonderful children. Patrick had a passion and that was cooking. His colleagues, at the last restaurant he worked at said “how lucky we were to have met such a genuine and wonderful man as Patrick was.” In his youth, he was a dedicated boxer and won many fights, both inside and outside of the ring. Patrick, the form we remember him as, will disintegrate into the lap of mother earth; will perish into nothingness. The good he brought to the world is added to the pool of strength and love we can draw upon to purge our demons, get it right with those around us, and enjoy life as it is meant to be enjoyed – as when Patrick, engulfed in the joy of play, would box and goof around with his dear nephews and niece. Patrick leaves behind his mother and step father Mary and John Neeleman, his father and step mother Ray and Rita Hall, his sister Donna Hall and husband Sidney Jarratt with whom he lived for almost 25 years and their children Molly, Patrick, and Jason whom he loved, nurtured, and protected, brothers Peter and Steven and their wives and children. The grief felt for Patrick now comes and goes as the ebb and flow of the Bay of Chaleur, where he was born. From all of us, thank you Patrick for all you have done. Donation can be made to Landmark East under the Patrick Hall fund. Service will be held at Bethany Baptist Church on April 30 at 1:30 on street 3901-44st (north of Eastview middle school).
