On Thursday, January 2, 2020, PATRICK JOSEPH CONNOLLY of Falls Church, VA. Patrick was the beloved son of Kathleen B. Connolly of Falls Church, VA. He was the loving brother of Kate (Nathan) Clukey, of McLean, VA and Michael (Ellen) Connolly, of Falls Church, VA.

He was also greatly loved by his nieces and nephews: Abigail, Samuel, Grace, Ella, Benjamin and Caleb Clukey; and Patrick, Ignatius, Penelope, Nicholas and Phoebe Connolly. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, John J. Connolly, and his sister, Sara Connolly. Patrick was born with intellectual and physical disabilities that became more severe in recent years. Even with these significant challenges, he was always happy and brought joy to everyone in his life. He will be greatly missed by his family, but they take comfort in the knowledge that he is now free from the physical constraints and discomfort he experienced in his life, and that he may now rest in peace.

I did not know this young man but I saw the funeral card at Mass at St. James this morning. I was touched that such a young person had died so I went home and looked his name up and read his tribute here. I'm new to the Church and am still very tempted. When I read how much joy this man brought through all of his pain, I broke down in tears. I've certainly been given more than him yet have not brought much joy in this world.
I believe he has been made whole in heaven with Jesus, and I thank God for his life. His faith and the faith of his family are a light that shines through the darkness. God bless and comfort you his family and friends.

What an exquisite and moving tribute video. So very beautiful.

Whenever I was in Patrick’s presence, I felt I was near an abundant grace. He was pure joy. He now returns to perfect Love. God bless Patrick’s exceedingly precious soul, and grant comfort to his beloved family.
