It is with profound sadness that the Finch family of Roanoke, announces the passing from this life of their father, son, brother and uncle, Mr. Patrick William Finch, 57, a resident of 800 Air Base Blvd, Montgomery. Mr. Finch transitioned from this life on Sunday, February 27, 2022, at Baptist Medical Center South, Montgomery.
Patrick was one of two miracles — Patrick and Pamela — born on the same day, August 30, 1964, to the parentage of Billie Joe and Sallie (Lord) Finch in Roanoke, Randolph County, Alabama. How exciting it must have been to welcome not one, but two beautiful babies — a baby boy and his twin sister — into the Finch family circle. Magically on that special day, a family of three became a family of five.
Who could have predicted the irony of May 6, 1995, when at the same age, his father, Billy Joe preceded Patrick to eternity? Perhaps it was predestined, for his father to take flight to his eternal home years in advance, just to be there to welcome his only son. Be that as it may, on February 27, eternity opened its gates and received the only son of Sally and Billy Finch. He was at Baptist Medical Center South, Montgomery, Alabama.
Patrick was raised in Roanoke in a loving Christian home by wonderful parents. From birth to young adulthood, the family remained firmly grounded at the Mount Pisgah Baptist Church. He attended elementary and high school in Roanoke. For most of his early life, Patrick worked closely with his dad, a well know local plumber. Later, following in his father's footsteps, Patrick worked in the construction industry for D.C. Homes. He also worked in the transportation industry as a driver.
We will always love and remember Patrick for his true passion ─ motorcycles, fast cars and Alabama football. Aside from those three interests, Patrick enjoyed laughing, and having fun with his friends and associates. Today our hearts are broken because the truck’s driver has been silenced; the motorcycle rides no more; the fast cars have come to a halt; the laughter has quieted and the fun times have been subdued.
Our sincere prayers and sympathy are extended to his daughter, Raeven Alexis Finch of Auburn, AL; mother, Sallie Finch of Roanoke, Al; twin sister: Pamela Finch of Montgomery, AL, and sister, Jonetta Finch Walton (Derrick) of Roanoke, AL; aunts: Freddie Finch of Louisville, KY and Annie Lee Hand of Roanoke AL; uncles: Frank Sims of Roanoke, AL, and James Floyd of Chicago Heights, IL; a special niece, Nicolette Allen of Carrolton, GA; special friends: Jane Ramsey and Reginald Mitchell both of Montgomery, AL; and many other close relatives and friends.
