Patrick (Pat) Cawley, age 54, a longtime Scranton resident, passed away Saturday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after a sudden illness. He is survived by his beloved wife and best friend of 29 years, Mary Kathryn “Kathy” Cawley.
Born on March 14, 1968, raised in West Scranton, and son of the late John and Elizabeth (Mack) Cawley, Pat was a graduate of West Scranton High School, Class of 1986. He proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps and upon his honorable discharge, he had worked for several area companies before working at Cooper Electric Company, where he worked as the warehouse manager for nearly two decades. His work ethic was tireless, evident by him also working for Jordan’s Towing Co. part-time. Continually working throughout his illnesses and ongoing treatments, Pat was truly amazing.
Pat enjoyed bowling, having played in local leagues, and his undoubted prized possession was his motorcycle. He also adored his animals, enjoyed cooking (with his Facebook-found recipes) and his favorite place was the How Kola Campground in Falls Twp. where he and Kathy lived six months out of the year.
Pat’s smile was unforgettable, his work ethic was admirable and his memory will long live on through his countless family and friends.
He is also survived by his loving family, including children Shannon Cawley and wife Susan Dixon of Montrose, Patrick Cawley, Jr. and girlfriend Mary Ward of Tobyhanna and Rebecca Cawley and boyfriend Justin Barrett of Scranton; a step-son, Gary Cardamone and wife Jen of Plymouth; six grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
An infant brother, John Cawley and sister, Ann Morgan, also preceded him in death.
A celebration of Pat’s life will be held Friday at 6:00 PM at the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, with a blessing service and military honors by the AMVETS Honor Guard.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Friday between 3-6:00 PM at the funeral home.
