PATRICK JOSEPH BEAUPARLANT Oct. 19, 1998 Jan. 15, 2018

Patrick Joseph Beauparlant of Los Alamos passed away January 15, 2018. He was 19 years old.

Patrick was born October 19, 1998 on Long Island, New York. He moved to Vienna, Austria in 2004 and graduated from the Vienna International Primary School. He began his athletic career in little league and progressed to playing Rugby, which took him to tournaments all over Europe. Patrick repatriated to New York in 2012 and attended Commack High School where he played football. He moved to Los Alamos, New Mexico in 2014. He graduated Los Alamos High School in 2017.

It is at Los Alamos High School where his passion for automotive mechanics took root. He bought his 1st truck with his own money he earned by establishing his own landscaping business. During his time in Los Alamos he also developed a passion for off roading and went every chance he could. He began the process of “flipping” trucks and was travelling to Denver January 15, 2018 on a quest to purchase his next project to refurbish.

Patrick was a kind and caring young man who touched many lives in his short time on earth. Patrick was an incredibly hard worker who regularly received compliments for his efforts. His compassion, bright smile and charming nature will be dearly missed.

Patrick is survived by his parents, Philip and Claire and his brother James.

The memorial service will be held Sunday January 21, 2018 from 12:00-3:00 at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Beside his mechanical skills, Patrick was also an animal lover. In commemoration of Patrick’s kind and compassionate nature, please feel free to make a donation in Patrick’s name to the Los Alamos Animal Shelter.
