Patrick Edward Branen died suddenly on December 28, 2016, in Washington DC at age 45. Fiercely beloved brother of Thomas and Abbey (Powell) Branen, and uncle of Finian and Maeve Branen, he is the son of the late Thomas and Frances Arlene Jackson Branen. A sweet and gentle soul, Patrick will be deeply missed by his many surviving family members and friends.
Patrick was a 1990 graduate of Bishop Kelly High School in Tulsa, OK, and a 1994 graduate of the University of Tulsa. After graduation, he served his country in AmeriCorps, at a community health center in San Antonio, TX.  He then pursued a career in international logistics with a number of different companies, including Texas Instruments in Irving and Austin, TX.  
In 2010, Patrick moved to Washington, DC, to be closer to his family. He worked for a time at REI and most recently tended bar at the Star & Shamrock in DC, where he felt at home.

Patrick was a world traveler, movie buff, voracious reader, and a lifelong baseball fan. He became a diehard Washington Nationals fan upon his arrival in DC. Patrick adored his nephew and niece, and loved to play with them.

In addition to Thomas, Abbey, Finian and Maeve, Patrick’s survivors include his aunts: Mary Rooney of West Orange, NJ, and Patricia Jackson of Troy, NY; aunt and uncle Sally and Richard Lisi of Mission Viejo, CA; and cousins William Rooney of Plainfield, NJ; Richard and Daniel Lisi of Mission Viejo, CA; and lifelong dear friends, Wayne and Kathy Fisher & Kate and PJ Motsiff of Queensbury, NY, as well as Amy and Andrew Quinn of Lake Placid, NY.
In lieu of flowers, a tax-deductible memorial contribution can be made to Capitol Hill Little League in honor of Patrick’s passion for baseball and his love for his niece and nephew.
