Affectionately known to family and friends as Pat, Duke, Patsy, Donnybrook, Governor and the Big Bunny, just to name a few, died at home with family and friends after a valiant and dignified battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). He was just 67 years old.
A bon vivant with a generous and caring nature, Pat was born as an identical twin to Grace and the late Raymond Donahue in Pittston PA. Pat graduated from East Stroudsburg University and as a natural entrepreneur he opened a gourmet cheese shop before pursuing
a career in sales.
Pat traveled the world and spent an extensive amount of time in Asia and Australia for business. In 1999, he started his own company, Innovative Catalyst Group. Pat cultivated incredible friendships and lived a full and rich life, albeit too short. The outpouring of love
and support he received from friends and family during his life and especially during his illness was remarkable.
He is survived by his beloved partner and wife of 21 years Stacey, his loving mother Grace, is “other half” twin brother Michael (Barbara), his big sister Sharon (partner Frank), his nephew and god son Mike and his special “girl” Annie D. Now in heaven having a scotch
with his father Ray and his brothers Jay and Philip, he will be dearly missed by all who loved him and remembered for his love of a good party.
