In Loving Memory of Patrick McCarty: 1949-2022


On Sunday, June 12, 2022, Patrick Harrison McCarty, a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle went to be with Jesus at the age of 73. 

Patrick was born on Jan. 30, 1949 in Bishop, California, to Reverend John and Alice (Riggins) McCarty. He was the oldest of eight children. He ventured out on his own at a young age. He found his love for cutting down trees as a timber faller, and worked as one for many years in Idaho and Washington. In 1995, he met and married his best friend Sandi. They spent the next 27 years enjoying each other’s company, and spending time with their children and grandchildren. 

Patrick was a very talented man who enjoyed woodworking, hunting, fishing, logging, and most recently, making wooden bowls. He put in endless hours on the riverbank hoping to catch the next big one. 

Patrick was preceded in death by his father Reverend John, his mother Alice, his sister Victoria Stamper, and his brother Danny McCarty. He is survived by his wife Sandi, sweet pup Penny, and his seven children Patrick John, Michael (Anne), Joleen (Devin), Darrin, Phillip, Jamie, and Christopher. He had 17 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and many special nieces and nephews he loved dearly. 

A memorial will be held on Sunday, July 31, 2022 at the New Harvest Church with a reception to follow at the Peterson Home, 935 N. Second St., Pe Ell. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Pe Ell Food Bank or the Be a Bonnie Project, P.O. Box 388, Pe Ell, Washington, 98572 c/o Pe Ell New Harvest Church.
