It is with great sadness the family of Patrick Walter Golding announce his sudden passing on Thursday April 21, 2022, a month prior to his 75th Birthday. Born in 1947 to the late Walter F. and his mother Muriel (Nice) Golding.
His early career was in management at Famous Players Theatres, saint john. He worked with his dad at Walter F. Golding Construction, then N.B. Housing in Saint John. He continued doing Carpentry, locksmithing and snow plowing even after retiring. He was an avid outdoorsman, who taught hunter safety, and greatly enjoyed Bow hunting, fishing, and golf. He was a self-made man proud, stubborn strong willed who did things his way. He was a tormentor and loved to tell a good joke, sometimes inappropriately. He had a passion for recipe collecting and cooking, noted for his beans, lemon pie, banana bread, and his Sunday omelets that were enjoyed by his grandkids, they would chant “pitter patter let’s get atter” so he would hurry up with their breakfast omelets. His absence will be felt, and lives will be forever changed because we lost Papa Pat.
He is survived by his three children, Katrina Golding (Marc), of Grand Bay – Westfield, Patrick J. Golding (Alisha), of Brown’s Flat, and Jessica Golding ( Patrick), his grandchildren and great grandchildren; Samantha Carvell ( Galen),their children Carter, Christopher and Connor, Kristy Janes (Rob), their children, Londyn, Jase (who Papa called “Little Man”)and Josie, Adriana, Alexander, and Declan Golding, his sister, Frances Dionne, brother, Dennis Golding, both of Nova Scotia, three half sisters; Sherry (JoJo) Keating, Cindy(Rob) Bourque, and Tanya (John) McKellar, all of Saint John, he will be also missed by his faithful dog Tucker. His extended family; Katie and Eugene Harding, their children MacKenzie and Payton, Ben Cullen and his son, Danny, and Katrina’s mother Karyn.
Everyday he wished Katrina a good day, told her that he loved her and reminded her that he was just at the end of her finger if she needed him. She was his “Greenbean”, Jessica was his “Rose Petal” and when P.J. was younger he was the “Apple of Dad’s Eye”.
