He was the third of ten children born to Bruce Walter Church and Carol LaDean Tobler on March 20, 1966. He was a graduate from Moapa Valley High School, Overton, NV, received an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force, and completed Sorenson’s School of Dental Technology, Richfield, UT.
As a Master Dental Ceramist, Patrick excelled in the field of restorative dentistry where he used his expertise and natural artistic abilities to bring smiles to the faces throughout Southern Nevada, Arizona, California, and Utah. He never settled for anything but perfection - even if it meant losing a night of sleep (and stepping on a few toes) to achieve it.
As the owner of the first dental technical school in the Las Vegas valley, Patrick devoted part of his school to help workers rehabilitating from occupational injuries obtain a new career in the field of dental technology.
Patrick was the doting father of two lovely daughters, Elizabeth Ann Margo and Michelle LaDean (17 and 16 years old respectively) of Las Vegas, NV. He taught them the Gospel of Jesus Christ and worked hard to be a worthy servant of our Heavenly Father. He had a strong testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and would have his girls and extended family know of his love for Him.
He loved playing basketball and tennis with his brothers and would humiliate anyone who dare challenge him in a game of chess.
Patrick was generous to a fault, and would do everything in his power to make his loved ones happy. He enjoyed being the center of attention – always at the ready with a joke or story that could lighten the mood of any room.
Patrick was preceded in death by John and Robert (twin brothers), Keith Ernest Tobler and Walter Haden Church (grandfathers), and Carol Hafen Tobler (grandmother). He is survived by his parents, wife Monique Danielle Darquea, daughters Elizabeth and Michelle, brothers Russell, Kim, Corey (Michole), Joey (Jamie) and Jeffery, sisters Katherine Madsen (Steve) and Candice Howe (Peter), grandmother Muriel Stratton Church, and thirty nieces and nephews.
Funeral Services will be held Saturday, December 29, 2012, at 11:00 AM, with a viewing from 10:00 to 10:45 AM, in the Heritage LDS Chapel, 1168 S. 700 W., Hurricane, Utah.
