Pat was born in Riverside, NJ on Oct. 25, 1956, and was raised in Burlington and Willingboro, NJ. After high school he enlisted in the Navy, where he served on the USS Nathaniel Greene and the USS Will Rogers as a missile technician. In 1989, Pat and his family relocated to California, making Turlock their home. Pat was employed over the next 20 years as a maintenance mechanic.
Pat was proud of his Scottish heritage, and being a member of the Clan MacLeod. He took great joy in attending anything related to the Highland games, and enjoyed telling stories about his trip to the Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye. He enjoyed family time, whether it was backyard barbecues, swim parties, trips to the snow, or camping trips. His favorite place to go was Yosemite, regardless of the time of year or the weather, as one trip was never enough.
Pat and Barbara were married for 26 years, when Barbara passed away in 2001. In 2004, he met Kim, and they were married in 2006. He was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather. He loved life to the fullest and it showed in everything he did and said.
Pat is survived by his wife, Kim; his children, Patrick (Jennifer) McLoud, Christopher McLoud, Daniel (Jennifer) McLoud, Pamela (Joseph) Provino, Denise (Mark) Bejsovec, and Kevin (Amy) Anderson. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Collin, Matthew, Hailey, Jordan, Tristan, Genesis and Josiah; as well as his stepmother, his aunts, and his seven brothers and sisters. Pat was preceded in death by his first wife, Barbara McLoud, in 2001.
An education fund is being established for Pat’s grandchildren, and donations in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.
