Phoenix Rising was contacted today by PatJ's sister with the following message:
PatJ was an avid supporter of the Phoenix Rising community for many years, volunteering with technical support and when his health declined he still consistently posted a welcome message with resources that he put together for new members. As his sister says, he was a kind and gentle soul. A friend to us all.I wanted to inform you that my brother Patrick Johnson of Whitehorse Yukon, Canada ended his suffering this morning. His wishes were to let this group know. I would like to thank you all for the friendship and support that you have provided to him for the duration of his illness. He was a kind and gentle soul and he was a light in our lives.
We will post more information as it comes to us.
Please take a moment to remember PatJ. May he rest in peace.
