Thomas Patrick “Pat” Ferris passed away peacefully at home on September 25, 2023, at the age of 76. Pat was married to Gayle (nee Keys) for 52 wonderful years and was the loving father of Wesley Ferris and Heather Bolton. He took great pride in being the adored Papa of Parker, Lauren, and Allison, his treasured grandchildren. Pat was preceded in death by his parents Terry and Phyllis Ferris, as well as his brother Michael Ferris and sister Kerry. He is survived by his sister Kathryn Ferris, and will be greatly missed by his extended family, friends, and in-laws.

Throughout his career, Pat dedicated 30 years of his life to teaching history at SDCI. He was known for his passion in coaching various sports, with a particular fondness for coaching the senior girls basketball team. Pat’s family was his utmost joy, and he was overjoyed when he became a grandparent. He cherished moments spent watching his grandkids participate in sporting events and dance recitals, playing with them on the floor, and rediscovering the joy of coloring.

A Celebration of Life for Pat will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023, at Denning’s Of Strathroy, where a heartfelt remembrance will be shared at 2:00 p.m. Friends and family are invited to pay their respects between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. during the event.

Pat valiantly fought pancreatic cancer for a year and a half. His family is immensely grateful for the exceptional care provided by the London Regional Cancer Program, including Dr. Breadner and Nurse Navigator Nancy Gregg, as well as Home and Community Care Services, including NP Katarina Girard, visiting nurse Lorena Sanchez, and many others.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests memorial donations to be made to The Baker Center for Pancreatic Cancer at the London Health Sciences in memory of Pat. Donations can be made through the following link: [link inserted here].
