On Saturday April 29, 2023, The Connection lost a valued employee, passionate leader and dear friend, Patrick Fallon, Vice President – Community Justice Services.
Patrick was with The Connection for more than 15 years during which time he led by example and taught his team to be true advocates for all the clients served, especially those in recovery and with the re-entry population. Patrick was very respected throughout the state of Connecticut as an expert in the Community Justice arena, and often called upon for his solution focused ideas. At The Connection, we will miss his passion for helping others, his huge heart and love for his friends, colleagues and family.
Patrick’s family stated eloquently in his obituary that, while he had many titles, his favorite role was being a dad. He enjoyed being with his children more than anything, whether spending time at home or attending sports games, taking car rides, or attending dance showcases – Patrick was always their biggest cheerleader. He adored his grandchildren and, at one point, took on the role of raising them. Patrick had a wonderful and playful sense of humor, a dynamic personality, and a smile that could light up a room.
Patrick has left a legacy of beautiful memories that will live on in the hearts of all of us who knew and loved him.
