Patrick M. Conery

September 16, 1959 — February 23, 2022

Patrick M. Conery, 62, of Rockford, passed away at home surrounded by his family, on Wednesday, February 23, 2022. He was born September 16, 1959, the youngest of five boys to Robert and Phyllis (Bates) Conery. He married Betsy Campbell on April 16, 1983, in Rockford. Pat proudly worked for the Carpenters Local Union 792. Pat enjoyed watching the Chicago Bears and the Milwaukee Brewers, and any other sports that were on. He was proud of his Irish heritage and had a heart of gold. He loved to tell jokes, play golf, fix anything he could, and play the harmonica. He was a caring, honest, strong man who loved to laugh, but could be honest with you when you needed it, and always had words of wisdom to share. He was a great dad and loved spending time with his two sons.
Patrick is survived by his wife of 39 years, Betsy; sons, Kevin (Hanna) Conery and Bryan (Cortney Fricke) Conery; furry sidekick, Bailey; brothers, Paul (Diane) Conery and John Conery; sister-in-law, Kathy (Anthony) Cichella; brother-in-law’s, Jim (Karen) Campbell and Tom (Michelle) Campbell; several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He is predeceased by his parents; brothers, Mike Conery and Jim Conery; in-laws, Don and Janet Campbell; sister-in-laws, Bonnie Conery and Sarah Conery; brother-in-law, Pat Campbell. The family would like to give a special thanks to Tommy O’Brien and family, their amazing family and friends, and the staff at OSF center for cancer, Rockford Nephrology.
