Patrick William Udell, age 64 passed away suddenly in his sleep on October 28, 2014.

Patrick was born and raised in Lockport, N.Y. After graduating high school, he enlisted in the Army and served fifteen months in Germany followed by fifteen months in Vietnam as a Radio Relay Operator. He was proud to have served his country voluntarily at a time when many were being drafted. Pat received Army Commendation, National Defense Service and Good Conduct Medals. After his honorable discharge from the Army he worked for a short time at Harrison Radiator and then left to run his own construction firm, building and renovating many houses throughout Niagara County for many years. Thereafter, he was hired by Delphi Motor Parts as a skilled tradesman and continued in that position, working for General Motors until the time of his death.

Pat was a proud member of Amalgamated Local 686, UAW of Lockport. He was never one to sit down could be found working on a project at one of his three real estate properties. Pat was extremely proud of his yard, always searching for the next vegetable, fruit or flower to plant in his many gardens. He was proud to see the accomplishments of his three children and always looked forward to spending time swimming or playing games with his three grandchildren. Pat was a loyal friend to many. Pat was a fierce and loyal friend. He toiled tirelessly to provide for the extraordinary family he and his loving wife, my cousin Gaye, raised. I find some comfort in the fact I can see some of him in each of their faces and those of his 3 grandchildren. People of Pat's character and warmth come along rarely and our family's world is diminished by his passing. I will recover, but I will never be the same. Peace. He was a lifelong Yankees fan and had season tickets for the Buffalo Bills for over thirty years. Pat loved tailgating before the games with many friends and family members, always ready to grill, share a beer, tell a joke or say something that made people not only laugh, but feel truly loved.

Pat leaves behind his wife of 41 years Gaye Eaton Udell, his daughter Tamara (Gary) Scoville of Clarksville, NY and sons Benjamin (Mary) and Christopher (Amanda West) Udell of Lockport. In addition Pat is survived by his sister Cynthia (Mike) Harris of Lockport and three grandchildren, Cole and Sara Scoville and Marley Udell. Patrick was predeceased by his parents William and Jennie Udell as well as a son Joshua Ryan. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends may call Thursday, Oct. 30th from 4-8 PM in Prudden & Kandt Funeral Home, 242 Genesee St., Lockport. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, Oct. 31st at 10 AM in All Saints Oratory, 391 Market St., Lockport. Interment will be in Cold Springs Cemetery. Memorial donations to the Calvary Cupboard Food Pantry, PO Box 625, Medina, NY 14103 would be appreciated by the family.
