Patrick Michael Yu, 61, of Southlake, Texas passed away May 20, 2019. He was born on January 22, 1958 in San Francisco, California to the late Michel and Monique Yu.

Patrick was a descendent of a royal Chinese dynasty family. He lived his life to the fullest—playing college football, racing cars and motorcycles and playing in a band in his youth. He spoke 13 languages and lived all around the world. In his later years, Patrick enjoyed working on and collecting cars. He owned his own broker business till his retirement in 2009. Patrick was known by all for his wit, humor and warmth.

Everywhere he went, people were endeared to him by his magnetic personality. Patrick will be remembered by those who love him as this larger than life figure who always made them feel like at that one moment in time, they were the center of his world. The family wishes to thank the nurses and doctors of Baylor Grapevine ICU for their extraordinary care of Patrick. Without their care and dedication, the family would not have been able to share such wonderful last moments with Patrick. Your professionalism and kindness were a true blessing.

Patrick is survived by his loving wife of 19 years Jennifer Bracken-Yu; children: Theresa Geiger, Ryan Yu, Jacquelyn Yu, Samantha Yu, Nathaniel Yu, Allison Yu, Victoria Yu, Devin Yu and Olivia Yu, grandchildren: Elijah Geiger, Sophie Geiger, Jonas Geiger, Jacob Amaya, Lincoln Amaya and Sebastian Amaya.
