Age 72, passed away after an extended illness. He grew up in Harper Woods, Michigan, raised his family in Okemos, Michigan and resided in The Villages, Florida at the time of his death.
He graduated from Austin High School, Class of 1964 and Detroit College of Law, Class of 1971 and then worked as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Michigan for 38 years before retiring in 2010.
Pat’s love of life was infectious. He travelled extensively before and after retirement. He loved any form of transportation, including trains, boats and planes.

After moving to The Villages, Pat participated in many activities, including Dragon Boats, water volleyball, the Straightshooters and Computer Club. His passion was helping others as a sleuth with the Florida Attorney General Office for the Residents of the Villages organization called “Seniors versus Crime,” which helped residents of The Villages who were defrauded of money or services.
Pat is survived by his wife, Linda Dallal McElmurry; children, Shawn (Kim Bauman); Ryan (Kim); Cailyn (Nate) Gustafson; grandchildren, Quinn McElmurry, Carson and Kate McElmurry, Elline, Corban and Kellen Gustafson; step-son Justin (Chelsea) Dallal, step-grandson Huxley. Also survived by siblings, Timothy (Debbie), Colleen (Bob) Lucido, Maureen (Jerry) Berndtson, and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Donald and Mary Rita and brother Kevin.

He will be missed greatly by his dear friend Helen Flower who faithfully stood beside him during his illness. Also life-long friends, Harry Richardson and Rick Tanghe, a.k.a. “The Three Amigos.” As the survivors, please enjoy that “Special Bottle”.

RIP Pat. Truly an extraordinary man in an ordinary world. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to Volunteers of America in Lansing, Michigan would be appreciated.

A Memorial Mass and Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at noon at Our Lady Star of the Sea in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan.
