Pat Moylette, St. Bridget's Crescent, Castlebar

Passing of a much-loved Castlebar personality

THE death has taken place of Patrick (Pat) Moylette Senior, St. Bridget's Crescent, Castlebar.

A popular and widely respected personality, news of his passing came as a tremendous shock to his family and friends.

Deepest sympathy is tendered to his wife Nancy, sons Martin and Pat, daughters Ann, Patricia and Karen, brothers, sister, extended family, relatives and friends.

A former member of the staff of Castlebar Bacon Factory, the deceased loved the outdoor life and enjoyed nothing more than a long walk on the many scenic roads on the outskirts of Castlebar while he climbed Croagh Patrick several times a year.

He was involved with Castlebar International Four Days Walks for many years and made countless walking friends through the annual festival.

Pat was also a keen swimmer and did early morning lengths at Castlebar Swimming Pool a number of times every week before attending daily Mass at the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar.

He also served as a member of the FCA and had a keen interest in politics, current affairs and gardening. A founder member of the St. Bridget's Crescent/Marian Row Residents Association in 1989, he will also be fondly remembered as a dedicated family man and a great neighbour.

His remains will be reposing at Kilcoyne's Funeral Home, Thomas Street, on Sunday evening from 5 p.m. with removal at 8 p.m. to the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar, arriving at 8.30pm. 

Requiem Mass takes place on Monday at 1 p.m. followed by burial in New Cemetery, Castlebar.

May his gentle soul rest in peace..
