By now many of you know that Brian Patelski took his final breath completing his battle with ALS on Saturday, May 11, at Medical City Lewisville. His wonderful wife April and his five amazing children Keely, Audrey, Hayden, Grayson, & Camden were with him by his bedside. His passing, although devastating for us, was a peaceful one for him, without outward signs of pain or struggle.
On Saturday, May 11th, Brian experienced complications with pneumonia which are simply just too difficult for someone battling ALS to control and bounce back from. He fought his battle against ALS for just over a year with countless friends and family walking with him by his side. They were his voice when he could not speak and his arms when he was just too weak. Throughout his entire journey he was never alone. Thank you to everyone who supported Brian and his family during this time.
We are truly sorry to those of you we have not been able to reach out to personally, Brian just simply touched so many hearts during his time here with us, so many to name. You know you are one of them. Thank you. We are all truly blessed to have shared time with such a wonderful man.Please keep Brian’s family in your prayers during this time. As further arrangements are made we will post them on this page. Please feel free to share this post on your page and with others and please, please, please tell someone you love about ALS today. Services will be held at Mulkey-Mason Funeral Home in Lewisville.
