Obituary for Patrick S. "Packy" Hoyt

Patrick, age 49 of Golden, Colorado.

Patrick Stewart Hoyt "Packy", beloved father, son, husband, brother, uncle, friend, neighbor, and sales rep, achieved his number one goal on November 23, 2018 – he arrived in heaven and was welcomed into the loving arms of his Holy Father.

Born on May 5, 1969 to Judy and Dan Hoyt, Packy became the fourth child of nine, giving him four brothers and four sisters. He came into the world a fighter, surviving Hyaline Membrane Disease, and this trait of a fighter stayed with him until his death. Packy didn’t just exist, he was an active, passionate, and determined man who loved life to the fullest.

As an active member of Boy Scout Troop 174, Packy showed his desire to be above average: he sold more wreaths than the other boys –and earned his Eagle Scout and Fire Crafter in record time. It was in Scouts that Packy fell in love with the outdoors and, more specifically, with Colorado. After a skiing trip to Winter Park when he was 10, Packy declared he would one day live in the mountains.

Always the goal setter, Packy moved to Colorado after graduating college, first living in a tent and selling sunglasses at a shop in Winter Park and later building his own business, Hoyt Co., and living in his dream home in Golden, Colorado. Over the years, he achieved countless goals such riding his bike solo coast to coast and making it to the basecamp of Mount Everest.

Among Packy’s priorities was building solid relationships. He realized this throughout his schooling, his years at Camp Eberhart where Packy was a favorite counselor of countless campers, and on his travels around the world where he befriended all he met. The personal friendships he created and nurtured through his business were unprecedented. Those with whom he worked, accounts, vendors, and colleagues, were like family to him. With his deep integrity, he never sold a product he didn’t believe in wholeheartedly. Patrick was a devoted friend to all, and his contagious smile stayed with those he met long after he left. He will leave a deep void in his much-loved Mountain Ridge neighborhood.

But, above all else, at the center of Patrick’s life was his family. His two children, McCormick and Mary-Therese, provided him with his most cherished and favorite role, that of a father. Patrick gave his greatest self, his deepest love to his 2 beloved children. Jane, Patrick, and the kids lived faithful and active lives, spending time hiking, skiing, traveling, and, always, praying. Packy kept the cleanest house known to any of us, and he joked about creating his own reality TV show called “Pat’s Clean House.”

To sum up Packy’s life is like trying to grab all of the sand from a beach. He was a faithful son to his earthly parents but also to our God in heaven. He was generous to a fault and his love was enduring. We recognize that the enlarged heart that took his life from us also further symbolized the person Packy was – he LOVED. It is with sadness that we bury our treasured Packy, but it is also with great peace that we know we have an angel in heaven.

“Grief never ends…but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay, Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith… It is the price of love.” Shared by Soren Barrientos
