Pauli, what can I say? We didn’t get along when I first started dating your daughter, or later when I married her, but we ended getting close and I love you, I’ll always remember when we went to O’brians together and drank beer and shot pool all night just bsing with eachother your grandbaby “Pretty Nitty” now has the cross I welded for you when you first got sick hanging up in her room, we love you and you will always have a place in our hearts, rest well and tell Maygen hey for us.
Pauli had a heart as large as all of creation. He would do anything for a friend I so loved his sense of humor When you were around Pauli you knew that laughter was a plenty. I so will miss his hugs and the kiss on my cheek and him saying I love you. He will sorely be missed. I know he is now with his beloved Megan and at peace May the Lord be with both of them🙏🙏🙏🙏
Dennis Paul “Pauli” Fitzpatrick, 64, passed away on May 24, 2023, at home surrounded by his loving family listening to his children’s special songs he created. He was born on January 3, 1959, to Dennis Robert Fitzpatrick and Queena Faye (Jones) Walker in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Pauli worked as a Water Distributor at Cameron Springs for over 15 years. Pauli was a family man and the life of every party. He was an incredibly loving father and grandfather. Pauli loved to be on the water with his family and friends; whether on Patoka Lake driving a pontoon or his jet ski or getting his toes in the sands of Daytona Beach. He seized every opportunity he could to soak up some rays with a cold beer in his hand. His fun-loving, free spirit and traditions will forever live on through his children and those who were closest to him. Pauli was an avid IU sports fan. He was passionate about cooking and feeding his loved ones around the table. He enjoyed going out to dinner at his favorite restaurants Los Bravos, Buffalo Wild Wings, and the Una-Tu Pizza on Governor. Pauli was voted the best in making Bloody Mary’s in all of Evansville. His door was always open for all friends and family. He was happiest when his house was full of love and friendship. Pauli had a nickname and song for all of his children. He was known for creating the best nicknames. He had the biggest heart and would give the shirt off his back to anyone. Pauli was selfless, compassionate, and kind. He was a jokester and loved making his loved ones laugh. Above all, he loved spending time with his family and friends. Pauli was the most amazing man you could ever meet and will be missed immensely.
