30 years old

Patrick Gallagher Joyce of Carlisle, Pa, died Thursday, October 25. Beloved son of Kevin and Maureen (Minahan) Joyce; treasured brother of Gabrielle and Emily Joyce; Cherished grandson of Henry T. “Monkey” Joyce, and Elizabeth A. Joyce, Donald P. Minahan, and Mary Alice (Gallagher) Minahan.

Artist, animal lover, political activist, environmentalist, and Big Spring High School thespian.  His sisters feel blessed to have grown up with their brother Pat, and together they shared campfires, snowball fights, and rollercoaster rides.  We admired his heart in the face of a debilitating illness. We will miss his warmth and generosity in putting the needs of others before his own.

Services will be held at: St. Philips Catholic Church, Crafton PA, Wednesday, October 31 at 10 am and St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Friday, November 2 at 10:30 am.  In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider donating to Project Semicolon via their web portal or the Facebook fundraiser.

My deepest sympathy to the Joyce family. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this time.

I'm so sad to hear of Patricks passing. Patrick was a wonderful friend who always made sure everyone else was taken care of in high school...from giving us little trinkets to remember him by before he moved away to giving me his jacket at our Homecoming dance because he could see me shivering, he was always thinking of others.
Prayers for his family.
