“Celebration of Life” Service

Posted: December 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

Patrick’s final selfless act was to donate his body for ALS research; so there will be no funeral or viewing.

However, we will be celebrating Patrick’s life and legacy:

Cornerstone Baptist Church
17017 Twelve Mile Road
Roseville, MI 48066

Visitation: Saturday, January 5th, 1:00-5:00pm

Service: Saturday, January 5th, 6:00pm

UPDATE: Childcare Available during service through age 5. Also, dessert reception following service.


So many people are wanting to help celebrate Patrick’s life and honor his family. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that you consider donations to one of these funds:

Cornerstone Baptist Church — Fellowship Fund

The people of Cornerstone have been so helpful to the McGoldrick’s over the past year. This fund helps others, like Patrick, who have fallen on difficult times.

      i just want you to know what an impact Patrick had on my daughter at the youth group at Calvary
      Baptist church, her christian life grew by leaps and bounds under Pastor Pat’s teaching and leadership in the youth group. My daughter brandi cunningham now brandi barrett, brandi and her husband tony are faithfully serving the Lord at immanuel baptist church and now after 13 years of marriage have recently 11mos ago had a little girl samantha. She also will be raised in church for which i am grateful for godly men like Patrick who gave his life to guide youth toward not only salvation but service for our Lord. I am sure he heard when he got to heaven “well done though good and faithful servant” our prayers are with his wonderful wife and kids.
