Patrick A. Plaiss, 43, went home to the Lord, September 16th, 2013. The most amazing, loving father, supportive husband, and devoted friend, the hole his sudden passing leaves in the hearts and lives of those who loved him is immeasurable. As a stay-at-home dad for ten years, Patrick's love and devotion to his daughters, Elise and Caitlyn, was visible to them and others every day. From being at every school function, to constant fun outings to the beach, to sharing his love of hot rods with them as they worked on his car together, Patrick shared every minute of himself with them. Patrick was well-known for his quick sense of humor, a bit less well-known for his huge, giving heart and willingness to help anyone in need. Our loss is great, our hearts are broken, and going on seems impossible. But we will, for Patrick, and because of Patrick. Patrick is survived by his daughters Elise and Caitlyn, his wife Tracy, his parents Monika and Nelson Plaiss, his brother Edward (Heidi) Plaiss, his parents-in-law Keith and Leni Baker, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and friends. A Memorial Mass will be said Friday, Sept. 20, at 1 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 1002 4th Ave. E, Polson. Light refreshments will follow in the Church hall downstairs. All are welcome.
