Our Friend Pat Donohue
Mr. Beau the Clown, AKA Pat Donohue

On May 9th our good friend, Pat Donohue, known throughout the northeast as Mr. Beau the Clown, suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at 3:55 pm at Rochester General Hospital. Pat Donohue entertained children and adults of all ages for nearly 36 years. His talent for encouraging laughter was only matched by his ardent attempt to make clowning “not scary.” He was a faithful supporter of our ministry, known to many in our neighborhood for his delightful performances at our annual Block Party.

As part of his 36 year reign, Pat Donohue transformed into Mr. Beau the Clown before the eyes of his audiences. It was through this transformation that Pat Donohue captured peoples’ hearts and encouraged them to laugh inside and out.

Pat Donohue is succeeded by his beautiful wife of 32 years, Kathy, and his five proud sons, Michael, Andrew, Patrick, Brian, and Chris. Family and friends are invited to sign his Legacy Guest Book or attend his Funeral Mass on Saturday, May19th at 9:30 AM at St. Stanislaus Church.

We will miss you, “Mr. Beau”!
