Patrick Alan Foye

CROSS PLAINS-On November 30, 1966, a beautiful little boy entered this world and on May 21, 2012 at the age of 45, he peacefully slipped away from life, embraced by his loving family.

Patrick Foye was an amazing man who, for more than twenty years, quietly and passionately served the community of Cross Plains as a firefighter and E.M.T. Eventually Pat became an assistant fire chief, a duty he proudly held until the end of his life. Pat was a graduate of Middleton High School and received a Criminal Justice degree from M.A.T.C. He was employed at the State Bank of Cross Plains for the past fourteen years.

Pat is survived by his parents, John and Betty Foye, sisters, Pamela (Alden) Bosben, Melanie (Jack) Miller, Ann (fiancé, Donny Slotty) Lathrop, Jenifer (Martin) Vire, Amy Foye, and brothers Brian Foye and Michael (Karen) Foye. He is also survived by his grandmother Leona Esser and nephews and nieces who dearly loved him. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Devillo and Eleanora Foye and his grandfather, John Esser.

memorial service honoring Pat’s life will be held at the CROSS PLAINS FIRE DEPARTMENT on Friday, May 25, 2012 at 10:30 AM. Friends may visit at the Fire Department on Thursday, May 24, 2012 from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM and again on Friday from 9:30 AM until 10:15 AM. Memorials may be made to the Cross Plains Fire Department or Agrace HospiceCare where Pat’s last days were guided by kind hands and gentle hearts.

Pat, you were right, “cancer sucks.” It broke our hearts but couldn’t conquer your spirit. We love you.
