Fallen Brothers» John Patrick

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Patrick family, the Gwinnett County Fire Department, and the Rome Fire Department of Georgia. Lieutenant John Patrick, 54, a 15 year veteran of the Gwinnett County Fire Department and a 9 year veteran of the Rome Fire Department died Monday April 14, 2003. John responded from Station 3 in Lilburn to an early morning and second structure fire in 15 hours at the Holly Rollers Motorcycle Repair Shop. He was preparing to ventilate the roof with other firefighters when he collapsed from an apparent heart attack. He was transported to East Side Medical Center where he later died.

     The first fire at 8:17PM was outside burning and took one company from Fire Station 23 about 5 minutes to extinguish. The second alarm came in 15 hours later at 2:50AM. This time multiple companies responded to the working fire. The blaze is considered highly suspicious and is being investigated.

     Our brother John leaves behind his wife Mary. A visitation will be held for John on Friday April 18, 2003 11-12:30PM at Tapp Funeral Home in Buford. A memorial service for John will be held following the visitation on Friday at 1PM at the First Baptist Church in Buford. A memorial fund has been established and donations can be made to:
