STORMS, Patrick Albert

It is with immense sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father, brother and uncle Pat Storms.

Pat will be remembered with love by his wife Colette; children: Garrett, Dillon and Madeleine; brothers: Reg (Kathleen) and John (Linda); sisters: Linda (Ray) and Barb (Craig), and many nieces and nephews. Pat is predeceased by his parents: Bud and Barb and brother Bill.

Pat’s love for his family was almost matched by his love for hockey, both as a coach and player. He was immensely respected by his work colleagues and would lend a hand to anyone who needed it.

We will miss him always.

I’m so sorry to hear of Patrick’s passing (I’ve just rehired back into Cisco and was not aware). I can only echo the comments of others that speak to Patrick’s kindness, authenticity and dedication to his job here at Cisco. We would joke sometimes about both of our last names ringing of a weather report. A memory that I’ll hang on to.

I know Patrick only for last 6 months and have interacted with him very few times related to work. Those interactions are very memorable, His care, due diligence and attention to detail are evident from those interactions. I pray for His kind soul to rest in peace and I will greatly miss him.

Don Ferguson

I am so sorry to hear the news of Pat’s passing. I spent many years with Pat at Cisco and always enjoyed our lunches to just “get away” from the rat race for a few minutes and talk about anything but work. Pat was always professional and very well-respected. He will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Lucy Bian

Patrick, I will always miss your sense of humour. I consider myself lucky that I have loosely worked with you on TD, though we have never directly worked with each other, you made the contact centre TAC issue less heavy by just being there! I appreciate you and sad to see you leave this world so early.

For the Storm family, terribly sorry for your loss.

Richard Bonneville

Liz and I were so sad to learn of Pat’s passing so suddenly. Colette and family, please accept our sincere condolences. All of you should have had so many more years together.

Pat and I met in 2009 while working on a Cisco project in Toronto. He had the unique capability to bring calmness to any difficult situation.

He was always ready to offer help and contribute to the success of his customers and colleagues.

Wishing peace and comfort to the family in this very difficult time.

Martin Beverley

It’s amazing how many lives Pat touched – amazing man and career. Always kind, caring and fun as we worked together on and off for 20 years. Apart from being dragged to various hockey games! I’ll always remember Pat during his time living in San Jose, for taking me under his wing when I moved there for Cisco in 2000, and helping me get my feet on the ground. You will be missed.

Lisa & Tony Blue

We are very sorry to hear of Pat’ passing. He was always a great cheerleader of our boys lacrosse team, where Dillon was part of the Wizards family. Sending our condolences from the Blue family

Doug Kramer

I was so lucky to have met and worked with Patrick, he was always so positive and always looking at how we could work together no matter what the issue. I enjoyed our discussions, the topic didn’t matter, but solving our preferred hockey teams issues seemed to be top of mind. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.

Jeffrey Wilk

I worked with Patrick for a few years at Cisco. What a great guy. His awesome sense of humour and personality were fantastic to be around. Every time he was on a call or (pre covid) in person, smiles were sure to happen. Smart, funny, professional, empathetic…….. My heartfelt condolences to his entire family.

Daniel Gregatti

Patrick you were one of the good guys, always bright, and positive. You were able to bring light and energy into any situation, Thank you my friend. As a fellow race car enthusiast, you made it to the pole position and will forever be in hearts. My sincere condolences to the family.

Dean Lariviere

So sorry to hear this news and sincere condolences to the Storms family.

I had the very good fortune to work with Pat at Cisco and he was truly a kind, and considerate person – always friendly with a smile on his face and quick to help others. Lucky to have met him.


Sorrry to here the news really upsetting. I new Pat in princeton school days when we were kids and never seen him for 25 years until Garrett and my son Zach played against each other both hockey goalies. And even after 25 years not seeing him the same smile and always positive . I seen a little while ago walking his dog by his house we talked and he was so proud of his family s accomplishments and also asked how my family was. And ya there was Pats happy and positive self.
