Patrick Mcauley


Patrick J. McCauley, 78, of rural Waukon, passed away July 8, 2019, at Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids after a short battle with cancer. He was staying with his sister, Mary, during treatment.
Pat attended a one-room country school until eighth grade and then went to St. Patrick's in Waukon until his graduation
in 1958. Patrick went on to further his education, earning a master's degree in English. He taught and farmed in Minnesota until he moved back to Waukon to farm the McCauley farm until his death. Pat loved teaching, farming and especially a good debate on any topic.
Pat was preceded in death by his parents, Dan and Mary (Sweeney) McCauley; brother, Jim McCauley; sister and brother-in-law, Ann and Bob Larson; and a nephew, Greg Larson.
Those left to cherish the memories are his sisters, Joan (Ken) Hein and Mary McCauley (Billy Smiley); and his nieces and nephews, Tim (Susan) and Brenda Larson, Scott (Deb) Hein, Shelley (Curt) Pryor, Heather (Trent) Buenzow, and Jimmy (Katie), April and Brian McCauley.
A graveside memorial is planned for noon Saturday, July 27, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Lycurgus, Iowa.
