Patrick J. Loftesnes

July 22, 2020

Patrick J. Loftesnes, 54, of Menomonie passed away Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN, where he was born October 31, 1965.

Patrick graduated from Regis High School and then centered his life around the military (US Army) with two tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq. He also had a passion for art and was featured in many local venues. The military was a favorite art theme of his. He had a degree in Graphic Design from UW-Stout and was working on another degree in print making.

Patrick led an adventurous life traveling to a few Middle Eastern countries as well as most European countries where he ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. He was loving, compassionate and had a wickedly funny sense of humor.

Patrick is survived by his mother, Sandra, son Logan Everson and a life-long Army brother, Bob McKittrick, as well as many cousins, aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his father, Richard, who died in 1979.

His creativity and passion for all things art was evident in everything he did, and we will greatly miss him walking the halls of the Applied Arts Building. I would love to connect with his family as well, as we would like to honor Patrick in some way on campus, and hope to talk about that possibility with his family.
