Rocky Mount, NC
Patrick Kevin McKirahan, 54, of Rocky Mount, passed away late Friday, Nov. 17 surrounded by his family.
He was born Oct. 2, 1963 in Miami , Fl., to parents Fred and Phyllis McKirahan and moved to Nashville, NC in 1980.
Graduate of Northern Nash High School in 1983, he went on to Nash Community College where he attended computer classes with his brother Larry, and found his career in Computer Programming.
He was an avid Miami Dolphins fan and sharing in his enthusiasm is his wife, Wanda, son Kevin, daughter Megan all of the home. Other family members are son, Kyle Johnson (wife Danielle), brother Larry (wife Laura), brother Kurt Phillips, seven grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held Friday, Nov. 24th at 6:00pm at Word Tabernacle Church, 820 Word Plaza in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
****The family would like to spend time remembering and reflecting on the good man he has been to everyone and his amazing life which has impacted so many! This is not a funeral! So, come dressed casually (wear some Miami gear if you dare), be prepared to hear Creed and the soundtrack from Hamilton playing as you mingle and nibble on some finger foods! There will be sharing of stories and a time to simply remember the great man that is Patrick McKirahan! There are sure to be tears, but there will also be lots of joy!
Instead of sending flowers, the family would like for people to donate in Patrick's name to the HOPE initiative out of Nashville which supports those who are struggling with addiction!
These professional services were entrusted to H.D. Pope Funeral Home, 325 Nash St, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
