Patrick Riley O'HarraNovember 23, 1968 ~ August 17, 2017 (age 48)
Patrick passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 17, 2017 surrounded by loved ones.
Pat was born on November 23, 1968 in Nampa, ID to Robert and Joan O'Harra. Pat was the youngest of our family with five other siblings. He grew up in Nampa and graduated from Nampa High School.
He married Diane Grant in 1996 in Boise, ID and gained a daughter Amanda. His daughter, Allison, was born January 30, 1999 and then his son, Riley, was born June 26, 2003. Pat loved his family so much. Pat and Diane divorced earlier this year.
Pat founded Alignment Specialists in 1999 and Idaho Spring and Suspension in 2005. We know he was thankful for his staff, family, clients and friends who help him grow from a one-man remote alignment service to a thriving corporation of 8 employees. He was very appreciative of the Treasure Valley trucking community for all their support and friendship.
Angelique Redfern, his girlfriend and her son RJ, enjoyed being part of this latter part of his life. They will miss him greatly.
Pat loved getting together with friends and family, and was always the life of the party. No one could tell a story like Pat, while keeping everyone in stitches. His family will always cherish the Christmas Eve parties we shared.
Pat loved living in Idaho and was passionate about fishing and hunting and would go anytime he had a chance. Many fond memories were created with family and friends at Polly Bemis on the Salmon River. As for golf he had a great fondness and frustration. He enjoyed snow and jet skiing, boating on Lucky Peak and was a fierce competitor at pinochle.
Pat was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Joan, and his grandparents Robert and Pauline. He is survived by his children; Allison and Riley, and step-daughter, Amanda Grant; his four sisters; Debra O'Harra of Star and her son, Cheri (John) Ong of Nampa and their four children, Julie Schneider of Pocatello and her five sons; Brenda (Glenn) Radel of Pleasant Hill, CA, and one brother, Mike O'Harra of Cuba, MO, and his two daughters; his girlfriend, Angelique and her son, RJ and many great nieces and nephews.
Pat had a generous spirit, touched many lives, and was loved by so many. He will be missed!
