Patrick Lee Church

June 24, 1969 ~ May 12, 2021

Patrick Lee Church, 51, of Lexington, Kentucky with a residence in Palm Bay, Florida unexpectedly passed away on May 12th, 2021 in his birthplace of Lexington. If anyone thinks that it can’t happen to them, read on.

Patrick was a father, a husband, a son, a brother, and a friend to many. He was known by many more as a handy man with the ability to fix anything. He is survived by his two daughters Jasmine Lee Corey Church and Lillian Lee Church, his father Frank Picklesimer, his brother Frankie Picklesimer, his mother Patti Jacobs, and his significant other Claudia Corey Church.

Patrick was a multi-faceted creative, an inventor, and a writer. He sketched by hand countless inventions and renovations over the years. His daughter, Jasmine, recalls her father teaching her the art form of carving wood and showed her that any idea can become a reality. He loved his family more than anything, his dogs included. He enjoyed cooking, know for his delicious sausage gravy served over warm toast.

Patrick was a collector. Small things that most would overlook held big meaning to him. He was an adventurer. He did a lot of traveling with his daughter Jasmine and she has fond memories of them snorkeling in the Caribbean, cliff jumping over waterfalls in Jamaica, and going on “all the rides” at amusement parks.

Patrick’s greatest calling was to give and serve. He was always quick to offer the shirt on his back to someone in need with an open heart to listen to others. He spent several years of his life traveling the globe with a mission to improve the lives of those living in poverty.

Patrick had been enduring a great deal of pain and suffering from his mental illnesses and from this horrific drug epidemic that has affected so many families in this country. He perished from an accidental opioid overdose. We know that his soul is finally at peace.

Addiction does not discriminate. Using opioids once is all that it takes to get hooked; from then on you are playing Russian roulette. This is what happened to Patrick. Addiction is a demon that affects the way your brain processes every feeling inside of you, taking over not just your brain but your life, destroying families and friendships…. The day Patrick died, a part of us died along with him. We will miss him every day for the rest of our lives. We will always cherish the good memories and times that we spent together.

Some of Patrick’s final words to his daughter Jasmine were, “At a moments time, life can change. Don’t let the worries of life control your life.”

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
