Patrick F. Whelan age 82, of Nashville, Tennessee, passed away on May 30, 2022. Preceded in death by parents, Joseph and Edna Whelan.
Survived by loving wife of 64 years, Mary Sue Whelan, sons; Mike Whelan, Pat Whelan, five grandchildren, five great grandchildren and numerous loved ones.
Pat was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed playing sports like tennis, softball, and golfing. Pat was a great athlete in his younger years and loved anything competitive. He even loved to still play golf despite his health issues right to the end.
He let his actions more than words to show Jesus to anyone he met. He loved to study God’s word and teach others for many years as a Sunday School teacher. Every person through his eyes had value and great potential. He was not one to focus on negative things.
Mostly he was a man at peace with himself, others and full of hope in an eternal life exactly as described in the scriptures. He had great joy through and because of his faith.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
