Aug 1, 2022

David W. Patrick (1974-2022) passed away unexpectedly on July 26, 2022. He was predeceased by his wife Peth Perry of New Bedford, and his step father Michael Briggs of Wareham, his grandparents Evelyn and John Wager of Middleboro, grandfather Norman Belrose of Missouri, and grandparents Nancy and Charles Patrick of West Virginia.

David was a hardworking man. His dream was to own a restaurant. That dream came true for him. He was co-owner of Double Down Cafe in Taunton. He worked for Ocean Spray in Middleboro. He spent many years at Zions Recycling. In his younger years, he was a captain/mate of a scallop boat.

David enjoyed many things including cooking, sports, fishing, lighthouses, his sarcasm, and riding quads. He loved all of his friends and family, especially his two sons. He had a smile that would brighten the darkest day. He had a contagious laugh. His heart was made of gold. David would do anything for anyone. He was a big teddy bear, being 6’4.

David is survived by his two sons, David Jr. and Christopher Patrick of Massachusetts, his fiancée Donna Miranda and her children Diane, Nicole, Steven, and Megan, their spouses, and Miranda’s three grandchildren of Fall River. David is also survived by his mother, Marion Briggs of Rochester, biological father Bruce Wager of Pennsylvania, and father Charles Patrick of South Carolina, his siblings Chris Belrose and wife Shana and children of Washington, his sister Tammy Patrick and her family of Rochester, his three step-sisters Heidi Duarte of Florida, Lisa Laing of New Hampshire, Holly Briggs of Georgia, and their spouses, children and grandchildren. He is also survived by his two step-sons, Jamie Perry and Chad Viera of New Bedford, a grandmother Betty Belrose of Missouri, his uncles and aunts Ronnie and Claire Belrose, Judy and Steve Shepley of Rochester, Karen Pierce of Missouri, and Chucky and Luanna Belrose of Texas in addition to many aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him all dearly. 

David will be greatly missed. A service will be held for him on Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. at Life House Church in Middleboro at 17 Jericho Road.
