Obituary for Patrick Donahue

Patrick D. Donahue, 47, born in Taunton, MA, son of Gail McMorrow-Donahue and Peter Donahue, died unexpectedly August 18, 2017.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his paternal grandfather, an aunt and uncle and many cousins. Patrick is also survived by his loving friends, Beth Rivera, Sean Sylvain, Joe Milliken and Chris Pong.
Patrick graduated from Nashua High School in 1988. From a young age, he practiced martial arts achieving many awards. He attained the rank of 7th Dan Shorinyo Karate and in 1990 established his own martial arts school in Brattleboro, VT. He trained with Steven Seagal, Mike Pabst and Scott Rodall who remained mentors. Patrick was committed to traditional arts and philosophy, and led to teaching accredited courses at Marlboro College in VT. Additionally, he taught non-violent intervention programs and received commendations at Brattleboro Retreat Psychiatric Facility in VT. In Vermont, he was a mental health worker for 20 years.
Patrick believed in investing in his community, teaching women’s self-defense classes through an abuse survivor’s agency. His work in schools impacted many children to view “Power as a gentle skill”.
Patrick was also a therapeutic Shiatsu massage practitioner. His training in Eastern practice and teaching took him to Japan, Okinawa, Canada, Australia and France.
He was also an avid rock and blues music fan, attending as many concerts as possible. He even dabbled in piano and guitar playing over the years. He was also an avid skier and swimmer.
He will be dearly missed by his family, friends and hundreds of students he has impacted through the years.
SERVICES: A Celebration of His Life will be held at the Unitarian-Universalist Church, 58 Lowell St., Nashua on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 3:00 PM. Friends and family are invited to attend. Interment prayers and burial will be private and held at the convenience of his family. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a memorial donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, 309 Waverly Oak Rd., Waltham, MA 02452 (www.alz.og) or the Unitarian-Universalist Church, 58 Lowell St., Nashua, NH 03064.
