Pat passed away in his wife’s arms at the age of 77 at Northern Colorado Medical Center on June 19th 2020. Patrick was born in Denver, Colorado on March 27, 1943 to his parents Fred and Doris Sperry. He lived most of his childhood in Casper, Wyoming. He graduated high school from Natrona County in 1961. He married his high school sweetheart on August 21, 1965. After Casper College, he graduated from the University of Wyoming, with a Bachelor of Pharmacy in 1966. They moved to various states while he was the manager of Osco Drug for sixteen years. Pat’s son, Michael was born in 1967. His daughter, Nicole, was born in 1974. His lifelong dream was to own his own drugstore and that dream came true in 1983 when he bought Sperry Drug in Lusk, Wyoming. His family and business flourished for twenty-five years in Lusk. He enjoyed working with Mike at the store and watching Nikki participate in athletics. In 2009, Pat sold Sperry Drug and retired in Greeley, Colorado to be closer to his family and in particular his grandchildren, Payton and Brady. He enjoyed watching his grandchildren grow up and play sports. He also enjoyed gambling, golfing, fantasy sports, listening to music, and traveling with his family. His other greatest love was his miniature schnauzers. Pat was happiest to be with his family and dogs, watching his Fantasy football players. Pat helped everyone he could during his lifetime. He helped his son-in-law, Greg and his partners start their engineering business, G2 Consulting Engineers and was partners with his son, Mike with the Mosquito Authority business. People who knew Pat, knew he was a great and generous man. To know him was to love him. Pat did not have a huge family, but he was the pillar to them all. He will be greatly missed.
Pat was survived by his wife Norene, his brother Robert, (Terry) Maricopa, Arizona, his son, Michael, (Penny), Henderson, CO, his daughter, Nicole (Greg) and two grandchildren, Payton and Brady, Greeley, CO.
