On Thursday, March 8, 2018 of Darnestown, MD. Beloved son of Lillian and Paul McGinty, Jr.; Loving brother of Rosemarie McGinty; Grandson of James E. and Rosalie B. Vlach and the late Paul and Marie McGinty.  Patrick was loved by many others, but most especially his immediate family: Maureen (Paul’s sister) and husband Mike, Sean (Paul’s brother) and wife Madeline, Ted (Lillian’s brother) and wife Diz, Gracemarie (Lillian’s sister) and her husband and children Andy, Graham, Olivia and Riley and Jordan (Rosemarie’s boyfriend). 

If you knew Patrick, you knew he was sensitive and intelligent. You knew he had tremendous integrity and faith, an amazing work ethic and that he was so very funny.  You probably experienced his sharp dry wit and were maybe even the recipient of one of his extremely creative and mischievous pranks.  You also knew his love of music and his dog Trixie was endless.  What you most likely did not know was how his mind was in constant turmoil and ravaged by severe depression.  What a gift he was to us all.  We learned so much from him.  You will hear us say many times over, our hearts are broken but our faith is unshaken.  Patrick finally has peace and for that we are so very thankful.  We were all blessed to have had the gift of Patrick for 22 years.  To wish for more would only be selfish, we are feeling very selfish.
