Obituary of Michael Douglas Patriquen
Age 40 of Middle Sackville. It is with extremely heavy hearts to announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Michael which occurred at his family home February 18th, 2023. Born February 12th, 1983 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the son of Melanie Stephen and (the late) Michael Ronald Patriquen.
Michael is survived by his mother; Melanie, sister; Melana Raye Patriquen and daughter; Faith Gilbert, who was the light of his life.
Michael had a love for wrestling from a very young age, so much that his nickname became “The Rock”. He had a passion for bodybuilding and all things fitness related whether it was walking his dogs at Bell Park or attending the gym twice a day, he took great pride in being the protector of his family. Michael had a love for cars, in particular his Acura Integra which never missed a bath or went unnoticed and enjoyed taking leisurely drives on warm summer days. Above all, Michael had an avid love for spending time with his family and never ceased to bring a smile to those around him no matter the mood they were in; an infectious laugh that brightened any room he graced with his presence, his personality was truly unmatched to none.
Michael was predeceased by his father; Michael, grandparents; Mel & Ann Patriquen and aunts; Kelly Patriquen and Mary-Jane Patriquen Shelley.
Michael’s love and devotion for his family was one like no other– he has more than earned his eternal rest.
A day of remembrance will take place at a later date. Donations in Michael’s memory can be made to Easter Seals or Canadian Paraplegic Society of Nova Scotia.
