On May 27, 2024, the world lost a remarkable soul with the passing of Patrick Bourque. Born on February 13, 1950, Patrick lived a life filled with dedication, love, and profound connections with those around him.

Throughout his years of service at the International Paper Company, Patrick exemplified hard work and commitment in all that he did.  His colleagues remember him as a diligent reliable individual who always gave his best.

Patrick's time in the United States Navy as a Communication Technician also highlighted his sense of duty and honor. His service to his country was a source of pride for him, reflecting his selflessness and willingness to put others before himself.

Beyond his professional achievements, Patrick will be fondly remembered for his quiet demeanor and loving nature. As a husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, he touched the lives of many with his kindness and generosity. His family was truly the center of his universe, and he took immense joy in witnessing the success and happiness of his children.

In his leisure time, Patrick found peace in various hobbies that brought him joy. Whether it was spending time at the casino trying his luck, fishing in peaceful waters, cheering on his favorite sports teams, reading a good book, or relishing in family gatherings - each moment was cherished by him. Above all else, nothing brought him more happiness than sharing precious moments with his beloved grandson.
