Patrick "Pat" Dow, age 56, passed away of natural causes on August 21, 2023.
Patrick was born on December 8, 1966, to John and Edith Dow. He grew up in White Bear Lake with his two brothers and sister. The Dow family attended The Church of St. Pius, where Pat received the sacraments and began his close relationship with God. Pat was an excellent chef and worked at a restaurant for many years. Though as an adult, Pat struggled with alcohol addiction, his faith gave him hope and the courage to help others. He served as a sponsor for others in his AA group and became very active in his church, Servants of the Shepard. Ministry was important to Pat and he enjoyed sharing God with other people.
Pat was preceded in death by his mother, Edith Dow. He is survived by his father, John Dow; siblings, John (Ada) Dow of Lake Elmo, MN, Susan (Rob) Skaar of Dakota Dunes, SD, and Christopher (Shelly) Dow of Cave Creek, AZ; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
A Celebration of Pat's Life will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at Mueller Memorial - White Bear Lake Chapel, from 12:00 - 2:00 PM, with a service at 2:00 PM.
Pat will be laid to rest next to his mother at a later date.
