OBITUARY

Benjamin Allen Patrick

September 13, 1965January 9, 2021

Benjamin Allen Patrick, age 55, of Katy, Texas passed away on Saturday, January 9, 2021.

Allen was born September 13, 1965 in New Kensington, Pennsylvania to Benjamin Powell and Darlene Patrick. Allen attended Valley High School where he played basketball and participated in track and field. He was an all-around athletic superstar. Allen attended George Washington University on a scholarship to play basketball in DC.

After leaving college, Allen went back to New Kensington where he later got clean and became a true solider in Narcotics Anonymous. Allen was very involved in service within NA and was a shining example that “Service is a Posture of the Heart” with over 21 years clean. Allen loved to travel the world and was very adventurous. In his down time, Allen enjoyed playing games such as sudoku and loved watching Jeopardy while playing along, appealing to his highly competitive nature. Allen enjoyed listening to music including anything from Wu-Tang Clan and Jill Scott to a Tribe Called Quest; his favorite singer was Sade. Allen was a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan, which is the only time you would actually hear him raise his voice. He bled black and gold.

Allen was preceded in death by his father Benjamin F. Powell, his niece Latasha Johnson, his nephew Michael Coover, his grandmother Gloria "Nanny" Patrick, and his cousin Seqourri Smith.

Allen is survived by his life partner Kamie Hubbard, his mother Darlene Patrick Moore (William), children, Tiffany, Deja, and George, his grandchildren, Ella and Joshua Allen, his siblings, Bridget Jones, Yvette Snyder (Terry), Talmadge "TJ" Johnson, Leann Johnson, his very special Aunt Grace Wade and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A memorial service for Allen will be held Friday, January 22, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM at Katy Funeral Home, 23350 Kingsland Blvd, Katy, TX 77494. A cremation will occur.

My condolences to the family, and know. Darlene and TJ you're in my thoughts and prayers. I only met Allen maybe once, but it was as if I had known him before. God plucked another flower from his garden. He is in the arms of God, and I know he must be smiling down at you all and happy. So Darlene I know that your faith is strong and I know that you and your family all love the Lord. Nothing is easy about losing someone but the comfort is in knowing we will see them again one day. So my friends I am here if you need me and I pray they each day you will get stronger.
Love you Gail Barnes
