Patrick Douglas Farmer was born on Sept. 14, 1972 to Gary Mack and Stephanie Ann Farmer in Leavenworth, Kan. He was their first and only child, and was welcomed with great joy. Patrick attended Sacred Heart School until 4th grade and Assumption School in Granger, Iowa until he entered high school in Woodward, graduating in 1991. He married Sandra Hester in 1991 and to this union 2 children were born, Carter Lee and Logan Nicole. The couple later divorced.

Patrick worked for over ten years at Shattuck Turf Farm and later became a certified welder, a profession he loved.

In 2003, he married Jessica Rohlf and to this union two children were born, Hayden Mitchel and Lillian Joelle.

Patrick loved his children and was especially proud of their accomplishments. He enjoyed sitting by the campfire having conversations with his mother or watching the latest movie releases while visiting. He was an avid Pittsburg Steelers and Iowa Hawkeye fan. He was devoted and loyal to his friends, especially friends Tony and Adam Seeman whom he had known since childhood. Patrick was a fun-loving person with a dry sense of humor. He believed that Jesus is his Savior and at times said the Lord’s prayer with his mother.

Left to mourn his passing are his children, Carter, Logan, Hayden, and Lilly, his mother, Stephanie Simmons. Dear friends Tony Seeman, Adam Seeman, and Jared Schulte. We know Patrick is at last free of pain, and is resting in peace in the presence of Jesus Christ.
