San Angelo-- Patrick Jack Pape, 29, of San Angelo, departed our physical world to be at peace on Wednesday, November 3, 2010. Visitation with the family will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, at Johnson’s Funeral Home. Funeral service will be at 10 a.m. Friday, November 12, in Johnson’s Funeral Home chapel with Rev. Ricky Burk, senior pastor of First United Methodist Church, officiating, assisted by cousin Rev. Brian Pape of Flower Mound, Texas. Honorary pallbearers are Clay Engdahl of Bryan, TX, Dennis Hester of Houston, TX, Charles (Chuck) Holden of New York, NY, and Burney Shelton of San Angelo, TX. Patrick was born September 17, 1981, in San Angelo, Texas. Growing up in San Angelo, Patrick played many sports with baseball and swimming being his favorites. He graduated from San Angelo Central High School in 2000, where he participated and lettered in swimming. He then attended Angelo State University and graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in International Business with a minor in French. In addition to the courses at Angelo State, he attended the University of Dauphine in Paris, France and the University Laval in Quebec City, Canada where he studied the French language. After his formal education, Patrick worked mainly as a certified physical trainer. Extending beyond college graduation, Patrick spent several years engaged in French language study with the aide of his tutor, Peggy Tharp. Patrick was worldly, having visited many countries where he thoroughly enjoyed experiencing different cultures and people. The guitar was Patrick’s passion, having spent much time playing with friends, but was just as happy strumming alone at home. Patrick had a gentle spirit and a beautiful soul. He embodied what a person should be, having been a loving son, brother, and friend. His heart of gold, sweet smile, and wonderful sense of humor, will be greatly missed. Patrick was preceded in death by his grandparents, Zonval Johnston and Odessa Jackson, Raymond Alfred (Jack) and Verba Pape; aunt, Opal Johnston; uncle, Bradley McCain; cousin, Shane Wilson; and very special friend Samantha (Sam) Turn.

I am very sad that Patrick is gone, and I am sad for his family. His parents raised a sweet, kind man. It's been about a year since I saw Patrick, but every time I did see him, he was friendly to me. That's the thing about Patrick - he was always so popular and handsome, but he was humble and genuinely nice to everyone. I will never forget that about him. And I will never forget Patrick. I hope he is at peace.

I hadn't been in contact with Patrick in 2 & 1/2 years, but I am very grateful to have known him. Patrick was an amazing person with a kind-hearted nature. We had many good times together, and he gave me many happy memories that I will never forget. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing.
To Patrick, my koala, you will be sincerely missed and always remembered.
To Annette, Robin, and Jennifer, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
