September 15, 1947 - February 9, 2020
Patrick G. McCabe, age 72, of Gouldsboro, passed away Sunday at Allied Hospice Center in Scranton after an illness. He is survived by his beloved “Tootse, wife and best friend, Sharon (Moore) McCabe. The couple celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on July 22nd.
Born in Clovis, California on September 15, 1947, and son of the late Clarles and Laura Patricia (Nash) McCabe, Patrick was raised in California where he was a standout athlete, excelling in track and starring in baseball. His love for baseball lasted his entire life, from playing semi-professional baseball in his youth to playing and managing softball in his later years. An active sportsman, Patrick played league fast-pitch baseball, pool, darts and bowling upon retirement.
After spending 13 years working for the Ford Motor Company and moving to the area, he worked for Jacobson Hat Company and Arlington Industries prior to his retirement.
He was a die-hard fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Rams and USC Trojans. Above all else, he loved his family, especially his grandchildren. He will always be missed and never forgotten after a courageous battle with cancer.
He is also survived by four children, Jeff, Donna, Katie, and Jenny; step-children who he loved dearly, Stacie and Fred Taroli; siblings, Cheryl Lynn Escalante and Robert McCabe; 17 grandchildren; many great grandchildren and nieces and nephews; and his adored pup, Lilly.” A brother, Michael, also preceded him in death.
Patrick’s family would like to thank the entire staff of Allied Service’s Hospice Unit for their collective care and compassion.
A Blessing Service by Rev. David O’Brien will be celebrated on Saturday at 3:00PM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 1:00PM until services. Please visit the funeral home’s website for direction, flowers or to leave a condolence.
