Patrick J. Slattery, 44




TEWKSBURY -- Patrick J. Slattery, age 44, a resident of Tewksbury, died unexpectedly Friday, February 6, 2015 from injuries sustained in an accident. He was the beloved husband of Kerri N. (Mooney) Slattery, to whom he was married for 17 years.

He was born in Boston on June 29, 1970, and was a son of Mary Slattery of Chelmsford, MA and Michael Slattery of Derry, NH. He received his education in Chelmsford schools and was a graduate of Chelmsford High School. He earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from UMASS Lowell and his master's degree in business administration from Bentley College in Waltham.

Patrick was the owner of Innovative Fabrication and Do Can Brewery, both in Lowell, and he coached Tewksbury Youth Soccer for many years.

He was a member of the UMASS Lowell Engineering Advisory Board for several years and a member of the New England CEO Network.

Patrick was a great supporter of the Lowell Sun Santa Fund and Lisa's Lung Cancer Awareness 5K Run/3K Walk. 

He was an avid sports fan, and he enjoyed cooking, going to Old Orchard Beach with his family, and spending time with his faithful companion Finn. He also enjoyed playing guitar with his band Intervention.

Patrick's children were the world to him. Nothing gave him greater joy than spending time with them. He spent countless hours on the soccer field with Gavin, he loved to play Xbox with him, and he loved helping Hannah with everything from homework to back walkovers.

The amount of people's lives that Patrick touched was immeasurable, with his generosity and kindness. His quick wit was unsurpassed; there was never anyone who was clever enough to counter it.

Establishing the Do Can Brewery was a lifelong dream he was able to fulfill. It was more than just the beer. He was creating an attitude of perseverance. His life's motto was "those who do, can".

In addition to his wife and parents, Patrick was the proud father of his two adoring children Gavin Joseph Slattery, a freshman at Lawrence Academy and Hannah Slattery, a 7th grade student at the Wynn School in Tewksbury; his sister, Kathleen and husband, Mark Matthews of Bronxville, NY; his mother-in-law, Dorothy "Dot" Mooney of Westford; his sister-in-law, Kelly Breen and her husband, Mitch of West Townsend; his nieces and nephews, Casey, Bailey, Jessey, Jack, Joseph, and Patrick; and many lifelong friends.

He was also the brother of the late Michael C. Slattery, and the son-in-law of the late Richard "Dick" Mooney, who both died in 2014. 

Visitation will be held at the BLAKE FUNERAL HOME, 24 Worthen Street, CHELMSFORD, on Tuesday from 4 until 8 pm. His Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday at 11 o'clock at St. Mary Church, 25 North Rd., Chelmsford. PLEASE MEET AT CHURCH. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Patrick's memory to benefit his children's education, please make checks payable to: Edward Jones, Reference; in memo line: Slattery College Fund and send it to Edward Jones, Attn: Jennifer Pollina, 820 Turnpike St., Suite 202, N.
