Patrick Francis Olinger, caring and loving son, brother and uncle sprouted wings and took flight from this life on February 21, 2020. Patrick, always eager to get to his next destination, entered the world as the first ambulance birth in Kenosha, Wisconsin on December 12, 1965. In honor, the ambulance was christened with a decal of a stork and the name “Patrick”.
Patrick excelled in school and obtained a B.S. degree in Information Technology (IT) from National University. His career was in IT and his passions were camping in the desert and outdoor photography. In pursuit of just the right light and image Patrick traveled the world. To say he was a quick wit is an understatement. No one could think of and deliver a faster humorous line than he.
Patrick was a guardian angel to and survived by his mother, Donna Olinger; his siblings, Donna Klingel; Richard Olinger (Linda); Timothy Olinger (Rima) and Mark Olinger (Linda); nieces, Monique Villeasenor (Oscar), Courtney Olinger (Aaron), Katie Paro (Justin), Paige Olinger, Tessa Olinger; nephews, Daniel Klingel, Joey Ramirez (Amanda), Tanner Olinger, Parker Olinger and Kyle Olinger. He was also loved by numerous aunts, uncles and friends.
Patrick is preceded in his journey by his father, Richard Francis Olinger.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Emilio Nares Foundation, 2650 Truxtun Road, Suite 202, San Diego, CA 92106 or any charity of your choice.
