August 10, 1982 - December 30, 2018

Patrick Garnett Engleman Patrick Garnett Engleman peacefully passed away on December 30, 2018 in Rogers, Arkansas at the age of 36. He was born on August 10, 1982 in Clinton, Oklahoma to Steve and Jackie(Renfro) Engleman.

At the age of 2, Patrick moved to Norman, Oklahoma with his parents and older brother, Ryan, where he was raised. He attended George Lynn Cross Academy, Pumpkin Shell, and Adams and Monroe Elementary Schools. He was a middle-schooler at Alcott and a Norman High Tiger.

Patrick was a computer graphics student at the Art Institute of Dallas and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in journalism and a minor in history.

Because he loved working with his hands and tools, he pursued a career as a master electrician.

A people person he was! He never knew a stranger and lit up every room into which he walked. And he loved to passionately debate politics, religion, sports, and philosophy.

In 2016 Patrick moved to Bella Vista, Arkansas after falling in love with the beauty of the area. There he enjoyed camping, hiking, biking, and kayaking.

Loyalty to family and friends was of the utmost importance to Patrick. He cherished his friendships with his lifelong buddies, and his big brother, Ryan, was his hero.

Patrick was preceded in death by his father Steve Engleman, grandparents Charles and Jean Garnett Engleman, and grandmother Bobie Brogden Renfro. He is survived by his mother, Jackie Renfro Engleman, brother Ryan and sister-in-law Jennifer Engleman, nephew James Ryan(J.R) Engelman, grandfather Jack(Papa-Jack) Renfro, aunts Teresa Renfro Collins (Mike), Pam Renfro Hudson,Carol Engleman Sander(Gary), and uncle Randall Emerson. Also surviving him are "the special cousins" Eric and Amber Emerson, and cousins Chip, Lela, Jenna, and Jamie, and Hannah. Patrick is also survived by his fiancee, Ashley Autrey.

Patrick's celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

I did not know Patrick but it seems like he was a fun and loving person who will be missed by many. I'm very sorry for the family's loss. We can all look forward to a time when we can see our loved ones again with good health and vigor. " And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will ourcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away." -( Revelation 21:4)

Patrick, you were such a light in any dull moment, that your mere presence could illuminate the whole room with just one of your mischievous smiles and cheeky retorts. I remember you putting P.E. on my favorite pair of Nike Shox in sharpie so that it would never come off and I would never forget you. Well, I never have because the permanent imprint that your genuinely kind soul left on my heart can never be washed away. I will miss you but am certainly glad Heaven has a new comical angel for entertainment now. Love you my old friend!
