Paddy Stapleton Obituary, Death – We were shocked and saddened to learn of the demise of Paddy Stapleton, Shravogue, and Kilashee. Please accept our sincere condolences. A few years ago, the affable Paddy or Pat recounted his life tales and many of the stories he had as well, and we had a wonderful conversation while he did so. With his father relocating from Tipperary to become the local postman, to his various employment experiences, to his marriage to Rose, his life has been full of milestones. the one and only love of his life, at one point in time they corresponded via letter writing, long before the advent of social media.
Paddy’s life was not without its challenges; he labored long and hard in a wide array of tough jobs, regardless of the weather.
Bad health plagued Paddy, but he never gave up and was always cared for by his loving wife Rose. After Rose passed away, Paddy’s daughter Dympna was never far from his side and constantly took care of her Father. Poor health plagued Paddy, but he never gave up and was always a fighter.
He stayed in contact with his friends and neighbors by listening to music, reading Ireland’s Own and St. Martin’s magazine, and stopping in for a pint at Magan’s whenever he had the chance. Paddy emphasized that the care and love of family and friends, in addition to a profound faith, kept him alive and happy for as much longer as he expected, despite the fact that he was in poor health.
