Patrick Strohm 1994 ~ 2011

Patrick Gary Strohm passed away July 24, 2011 as a result of injuries sustained in an accident. He was born April 14, 1994 to Ronald and Susie Strohm. Patrick was an amazing person, who loved life, and lived it to the fullest. Patrick was happiest when he was outside, pushing the limits and spending time with his friends and family, be it in the family backyard, red rock country, the mountains or at the ocean. Patrick pursued his many active passions with complete commitment, whether it was biking (both mountain and road), skating, running, backpacking, snowboarding or longboarding. Patrick had many friends both in Sandy and as part of the Realms of Inquiry community, who will miss him dearly. The students, staff and administration at Realms of Inquiry, and the experiences Patrick shared with them, were such an important and valued part of his life. Patrick is survived by his parents, brothers, Andrew and Tony (Tony's wife Jennifer and sons Dominic and Bryson); his Oma, Erika Sobel, grandparents, Margaret and Scott Nelson, and Ben Strohm, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Patrick was preceded in death by his Opa, Gary Sobel. A celebration of Patrick's life will be held on Saturday, July 30, 2011, at his parent's home, 2158 E. Mesa Circle in Sandy, beginning at 4:00 pm. In true Patrick fashion, appropriate attire will be shorts and t-shirts! To best honor Patrick, in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Realms of Inquiry (, or your favorite charity. We will forever miss his energy, his being, and his passion. We love you Patrick.
