Patrick J. Wrisley

Visitation hours will be held at the Wrisley Funeral Home, 90 Sugarloaf Street, South Deerfield, MA 01373, on Wed. May 24th, from 4-6 PM.

Patrick J. Wrisley, 64, of Greenfield, MA, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by close family and friends after a long battle with cancer on Tuesday, May 17, 2017.

 

Patrick was born in January of 1953 to Ellen (Armitage) and Raymond Wrisley: the last of nine children. He grew up in Conway where he volunteered as a Fire Fighter until he graduated from Technical School. He married his first wife, Maura Sullivan in 1973 and together they had son Shawn Wrisley. They spent seven years together before going their separate ways. Patrick tried his hand at several different vocations after that before finding his true calling as a Nurse’s Aide at the Franklin Nursing Home.

 

Underneath his rough and tumble demeanor he had a gentle soul and compassion that was a comfort to the residents and a great asset to the community, as a whole, there. He spent 10 years working hard before having to retire due to medical reasons. Along the way he met his current wife, Linda (Balboni) and her daughter, Nicole Balboni. Linda and Patrick were married in January 1981 and the following year, Patrick adopted Nicole as his own. Patrick was an avid golfer throughout his entire life. He and Linda became regulars at Goodnow’s Chip and Putt golf leagues and then, later on, Patrick helped run the clubhouse through the summer seasons.

 

Patrick was predeceased by brother’s Edward (Eddie) Armitage, James (Jimmy) Wrisley, Raymond Wrisley, and sister Margaret (Peggy) Johnson. Patrick leaves behind sister’s Dorothy (Dottie) Harris, Julia Clark, Barbara (Bobbi) Cadran, brother Lyman Wrisley, daughter-in-law Heather (Superson) Wrisley grandson Ryan Wrisley and granddaughter Ella Wrisley.

 

Visitation hours will be held at the Wrisley Funeral Home, 90 Sugarloaf Street, South Deerfield, MA 01373, on Wed. May 24th, from 4-6 PM.
