Patrick James Stokes (1966-2017)

  Posted: July 27, 2017

It is with great sadness that the Holy Family Catholic Regional Division is announcing the sudden passing of Pat Stokes on July 19, 2017 at the age of 50.

He was the beloved husband of Louise Stokes (nee St. Godard),  He was the much loved son of Myrna Stokes, his brother Robert Stokes and his sister Kathleen Stokes and her husband Brian MacLean.  He is predeceased by his Father, Robert Stokes.

Pat was a twenty seven year employee of the school division dedicating his career to Rosary School in Manning.  Pat was a loved teacher, Vice-Principal and for the past four years Principal.

Pat was a good man in every sense of the word.  He put duty to family and job above all.  He was a dedicated and loyal employee.  He coached many sports over the year and beamed with pride over the achievement of his players and students.

He loved golf, snowmobiling, tennis and anything that would take him outdoors. Photography was his passion.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pat’s wife, family and Rosary staff, students and parents.

“Pat will be greatly missed”,

Betty Turpin
