Patrick (Pat) S. Kania, Sr.passed away on September 14, 2021, with his family by his side. Pat was born to Josephine Miller-Kania on March 17, 1938 in Toledo, Ohio. As a young boy, he spent many hours with his grandparents, Anna and Stanley Kania, whom he loved dearly.
In January of 1966, Pat married Marjorie (Marjie) Ann Mohr. Sharing a beautiful life together, they went on to have four children, eight grandchildren, and a great-grandchild. He was a wonderful father and an amazing grandfather who worked extremely hard to ensure his family never went without.
Anyone who knew Pat knew of his passion for working with his hands. He was a 62-year member of the Local 886 – Cement Masons Union. He enjoyed each and every site he ever worked at and, if you were lucky enough to be in the car with him as one passed, he would be sure to mention it.
During his retirement, he became very fond of baking. Whether it was a pie or bread, he would try and try again until he got it perfect. He even went to the extent of asking the women in his life to teach him how to braid so he could braid his bread.
He is proceeded in death by his grandparents Anna and Stanley Kania, his mother Josephine Kania-Miller, his stepfather Alfred Miller, his maternal aunt Clem (Bob) Heckle, and his sister Carol (Jack) Miller-Sorosiak.
He is survived by his loving wife Marjie Kania, his children Scott Arnold, Kristine (Gale) Ward, Patrick (Jodie) Kania Jr., Beth Kania, Anne (Andy) Potter; his grandchildren Chelsea (Mickey) Kania, Zachary (Kacie) Crampton, Isaac (Brittany) Moline, Andrew and Benjamin Potter, Ariel Hoffman, and Claribel and Madeline Kania; his great-granddaughter Mykah Moline; his brothers Richard (Pam) Miller, John (Pattie) Miller, and sister Annette (Bob) Clifton; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
