Pat O’Day Dies

From Jeff O’Day—–

It is with great sorrow to announce, Pat O’Day has left the Arena.
Dad passed peacefully at his home in the San Juan Islands today.
Beating lung cancer was an incredible victory for him, unfortunately it wreaked havoc on his lungs.
In his final days his sprits were high, he lived every day as though it were his last…. He knew the gifts he had been given and how spectacular his life had been, Dad was ready.
The Pacific Northwest will always seem a little empty without the legendary Pat O’Day, All we can do is focus on the incredible role he had in making the Emerald City a better place to live, and the difference he made in people’s lives.
As his Son, I could have never imagined a better role model for me as a Father. I have never met a more faithful, loving husband to his Wife Stephanie,
He will be in my thoughts every day for the rest of my life.
Please respect the family’s privacy through this time.
Jeff O’Day

  1. Very saddened to learn that Pat lost his battle with cancer. So much has been said & written about the iconic Pat O’Day that it’s hard to add anything original. What an inspiration he was to many of us young teens eager to pursue a career in radio. Rock n roll radio as we know it & have experienced throughout our lifetimes was forever shaped & altered by the very talented, skilled, entertaining Pat O’Day who is synonymous with all that is Pacific Northwest culture. It’s heartening to know he will no longer suffer from the pain & ravages of the most insidious of diseases. If there’s a rock n roll heaven, be assured that Pat O’Day will influence it’s existence for eternity.

  2. So sad, and yet he lived a good life and gave back to each of us. KJR in the early and mid-60’s dominated and I was one who listened faithfully. Pat, THANK YOU! RIP
