Patrick was born to Richard and Linda Drake on April 15, 1971, in Wadena, Minnesota where he grew up and graduated in 1982. In his 5th grade he suffered a life-changing accident that left him legally blind. That was in 1982. In spite of that he had a great sense of humor that will be missed by all who knew him. He briefly lived in Arkansas and Colorado, but he always returned to Minnesota where the fishing was better and his family remained. He was found deceased unexpectedly on July 10, 2018, at the age of 47.
He is survived by his parents, Rich and Linda Drake, maternal grandmother, Ramona Parpart, siblings: Suzanne Sheppard (Allen), Teresa Ortiz (Juan Carlos), Cassie Drake, Dan Drake (HoneyRose), and Renee Sherman (Randy) and 6 nieces and 3 nephews. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Harvey and Ethel (Tritsch) Drake and his maternal grandfather, Ralph Parpart and two siblings, Ricky and Rebekah Drake.
Patrick will be laid to rest near Ricky and ‘Bekah Drake at Leaf River Cemetery north of Wadena just off County 20 on 170th Street on August 5th 2018 at 2:30.
