Obituary for Patrick R. McMullen

Patrick Rodney McMullen was born July 8, 2002 in St. Cloud to Michael (Mac) and Lisa (Formanek) McMullen. He was currently an eighth grader at Cathedral High School although he was physically unable to attend. He had home bound tutoring and looked forward to his daily visits with his tutors. Patrick loved school and especially loved math. Patrick loved sports and loved to watch Notre Dame football, Viking football, Chicago Blackhawks Hockey, the Minnesota Wild Hockey and his beloved SCSU Husky Hockey team, with whom he had a special relationship. His photo hangs in the Husky locker room. Patrick himself took great pride in playing baseball, hockey, football, golf and family backyard games of kickball or whiffle ball. He loved to fish at Grandma and Grandpa’s, he loved to swim and he loved to ride his bike and scooter. Most of all, he loved to do anything with his big sister, Katie. They were like two peas in a pod and made many memories together. As Patrick’s physical abilities declined, he relied on his iPad for school and entertainment. Patrick loved to play slot machines, cribbage and word games on his iPad.

Patrick will be remembered for his tenacity, kindness, compassion, sense of humor, zest for life, for being a good friend and for his strong faith in God. He had a quick wit and a smile that could light up the world. Patrick was a warrior and fought hard against the disease that ravaged his body, but not his soul.

Patrick is survived by his parents, Michael (Mac) and Lisa McMullen of St. Cloud; sister, Katie, at home; maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Formanek of Henning; paternal grandmother Marlene McMullen of St. Cloud; four-legged friends CoCo and Lucy; aunts and uncles, Stephen Formanek, Robert Formanek (Tessa), Daniel Formanek (Vesla), Darin McMullen (Karen); cousins, Sara Cameron (Brady), Kaila Formanek, Matthew Formanek, Heather Holien and Hannah Holien, and a large extended family including his faith and school communities.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Frank Formanek; paternal grandfather, Rodney McMullen; and uncle Brian McMullen. In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to Patrick’s future Legacy Foundation.

~In the end it is not the years in a life that count, it is the life in the years~
