Patrick Selby Johnson

April 21, 1972 – December 29, 2020
Patrick’s battle with ME/CFS ended on December 29th. He is now free from his suffering.
Patrick was born in Whitehorse Yukon to Margaret and David Johnson. He was an intelligent and curious boy. He was always taking things apart and rebuilding them. He had a natural intelligence for computers and electronics, all his knowledge was self taught. He helped to teach at computer camps in his teens for several years.
In his early 20’s he took a long anticipated trip to New Zealand and spend weeks backpacking and exploring the country.
He worked as a computer programmer and web page designer for as long as his health would allow. He was a partner in ‘Walker Lebrun’ a successful web design business. His health declined and he could no longer work but continued to use his marvelous mind for many other creative endeavors.
He had amazing artistic talent and is well remembered for the beautiful hand drawn cards he gave for numerous occasions.
He was a loving Uncle to his niece Bailey and nephew Brody. No one was closer to Pat than Bailey, they spent so much time together. He was always teaching her something new or expanding her mind with Buddhist quotes. He passed on his ability to engineer and build to his nephew Brody and always encouraged his love of building.
Despite his battles he was a pillar of strength for his sister Shannon and anything life threw at them they got through together. After the loss of their mother, Pat’s final years were spent close to Shannon and her family when he moved into “Uncle’s house” in their backyard.
He lived life through his family when his health would no longer allow him to go out and live it himself. He saw Bailey and Brody everyday and he was surrounded by love at all times.
He was treasured dearly by his friends on the Phoenix Rising group for others with ME/CFS. He provided not only technical support but emotional support and friendship to its members.
He is remembered for his compassion and his kind and gentle spirit. He could always offer the perfect quote just when someone needed it most.
He lives on through his family and friends.
He left a mark on this world and has now moved on to his next life. He was serenity and grace. Now he is free.
‘When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving something in it’s place I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss – good not evil, success, not failure in order that I shall not forget the price I paid for it’
We will miss you, you are so loved. Shannon, Jason, Bailey, Brody and family.
