Harrington, Patrick on Monday November 29th, 2021. He is survived by his three daughters; Linda {Tom} Nelson, Priscilla Fonceca, and Nancy Pfeiffer, four grandchildren, and six great grandchildren.

Pat was born and raised near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn State with a degree in engineering. He proudly served his country in World War II as an Ensign on the Navy destroyer USS Miller. He met the love of his life Marie (Seybt), and they settled in Kirkwood. He was employed by Union Electric for 26 years. He retired to take care of his flowers and garden, travel. Most every weekend for almost 60 years you would find Pat and family member(s) at Coldwater. He was usually one of the first people in the pool in the spring. He loved the place!

His rose garden parties were legendary, and the green house he built in the 1980’s was written up in the Post Dispatch. His knowledge of flowers and plants was exceptional, and he was willing to share this knowledge with anyone. Pat was a wonderful and caring father, grandfather and great grandfather - he was loved and will be missed by all.

Memorial Service will be held Saturday December 18th at Webster Groves Presbyterian Church, time is pending

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions appreciated to the Missouri Botanical Gardens or Webster Groves Presbyterian Church.
