Patrick T. Fury, 85, of Engle­wood, Fla., passed away in peace Feb. 8, 2016, at his home.

Patrick was born in Dubuque, Iowa, on Sept. 5, 1930. He was hon­or­ably dis­charged from the U.S. Army as a first lieu­tenant in 1955. Patrick said he was blessed with two extra­or­di­nary women in his life. He mar­ried San­dra Rupp in 1952; they raised nine chil­dren together in Cha­grin Falls, Ohio. San­dra passed away in 2003. Cyn­thia Ramirez mar­ried Patrick in 2010, bring­ing love back into his life.

He is sur­vived by his wife, chil­dren, 19 grand­chil­dren, and three great-grandchildren (two on the way). Patrick touched all around him with charm, humor, and defi­ance. He is loved and missed.

A memo­r­ial prayer ser­vice will be held at 3 p.m. Mon­day, Feb 15, at the Engle­wood Com­mu­nity Funeral Home with Pri­vate Cre­ma­tory, 3070 S. McCall Road.
