Patrick Michael McGurn passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 26, 2018 at Parkview Warsaw Hospital. A resident of Hoffman Lake, he was 52 years old.
Pat, as most people called him, was born on September 29, 1966 in Chula Vista, California to Thomas Harold McGurn, Jr. and Ardella Lucielle (Harvey) Blythe. As his father was in the US Navy, they moved throughout Pat’s childhood, settling in Warsaw, Indiana in 1972.
Pat was a 1985 graduate of Warsaw Community High School. He attended Ivy Tech Community College where he focused on mechanical maintenance. Later, he worked for Explorer Van and then for Biomet. Most recently, he was working at Zimmer Biomet through Adecco where he was a packager.
On July 3, 1993, Pat was united in marriage to BethAnn Fann. The two were setup by friends several years earlier. Brokenhearted, BethAnn and their two children, Johnathan and Sydney, survive at home.
Pat loved fishing, gardening and tinkering with projects. He had a gift for mechanical work and could fix seemingly anything. He would often retrofit tools to make a job easier or the tool more effective. He was a Cub Scout Leader for Pack 733, Nappannee and enjoyed seeing his son become an Eagle Scout. In his downtime he enjoyed watching historical documentaries, Star Trek, Star Wars and other Science Fiction. Sarcastic and humorous with a tough exterior, he was secretly a lover of animals and cared very deeply for his family and closest friends.
In addition to his wife of 25 years, BethAnn McGurn, those who survive with memories to cherish include son, Johnathan McGurn and daughter, Sydney McGurn; four sisters: Ocie (Kevin) Nelson of Fremont, MN, Tracey (Johnny Wayne) Martin of Lexington Park, MD, Valorie (Derrick) Anderson of Pleasant View, UT, and Catherine (Jean-Cristophe) Caland of France and two brothers, Thomas (Joan) McGurn III of Covington, WA and Victor (Amy) Morse of London, KY. Also surviving is Patrick’s mother, Ardella Blythe and numerous nieces and nephews. Pat’s father, Thomas McGurn, Jr., preceded him in passing.
