Patrick James Cork, age 50, left this world on his own terms on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
Patrick was born to Gwyn Evans and Dennis Juneau on April 14, 1972 in Helena, Montana. He was adopted by Laura and Virgil Cork of Missoula and raised mostly in the Missoula area, though he did also attend school in Browning, MT and in Morenci, AZ.
He leaves behind his children ShaylaRae Cork of Mesa, AZ, Austin Cork (Natasha Ball) of Phoenix, AZ Makenzie Cork of Sterling, KS, Jaxon Cork of Safford, AZ, and Jayden Cork, Missoula.
Patrick was the artist and owner of Center Pocket Design. His artistic talent which showed up when he was 3 years old was uncanny. His imagination, attention to detail and color drove his creativity, leading to wild, humorous, and beautiful works of art. Patrick could make or fix just about anything; he instinctively knew how things went together. To those he loved he would do for or give anything, and most family members have a piece of artwork or a home project that reminds them of Patrick’s many talents.
Patrick had a great sense of humor, and it was honed by the crazy family he grew up in. He had lots of family, sisters Mary Sorells, (Ashley and Aliyah) and Shannon Pingleton (Kyrie) of Missoula and Meghan Roe (Tyson) (Quora, Teaghan and Harper) of Kalispell and brothers Ezekiel Cork (Katy McMahon) of Missoula, Shawn Andersen (Paula) (Andrew and Avonlea) of Cut Bank, and Judson Andersen (Christine) (Alayna and Quinn) of Colorado Springs, CO. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Patrick married Alicia Carroll on November 23, 1991, in Missoula, they later divorced. Patrick married Anna Villabla on October 31,2004, they later divorced. Patrick was preceded in death by both of his fathers, Dennis Juneau and Virgil Cork.
A celebration of Patrick’s life will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. at the Orchard Homes Country Life Club in Missoula, MT. Please keep Patrick and his family in your prayers.
Memorials may be given to the charity of your choice or toward the Zootown Arts, Poverello Center or the Missoula Pact.
