Patrick Cummiskey, died peacefully at his home on Thursday October 7, 2021 at the age of 92.
A near daily visitor to The Landings dog park, Pat would accompany his faithful companion, Maggie in his golf cart to socialize with other residents and their dogs.
Pat was born in Detroit, MI and following high school attended the University of Michigan. He graduated prior to joining the US Marines where he was a SSF flying 2nd seat in a Grumman F7F Tigercat over the skies of the Korean Peninsula during the Korean War.
In 1954, Pat married his college sweetheart, Jean Freshour and together they had 3 sons and 7 grandchildren. Pat enjoyed a long career as a sales and marketing executive and loved traveling the world with his wife during their free time.
He is survived by 2 sons, his grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church, 1 West Ridge Rd. on Skidaway Island, on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 2:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests you consider a donation to Coastal Care Partners or Messiah Lutheran Church.
I miss my daily conversations with Pat at the dog park! He was a wealth of information and had the best sense of humor! I told him many times he reminded me of my own father who passed about 6 years ago! It sounds like he lived a full, happy life! My thoughts & prayers are with his family during this difficult time!

Pat will be delighted to welcome back his son, wife, and those he lost when he experiences the miracle of the resurrection. John 5:28,29 He may rest, but soon will near that call ,COME OUT, as Lazarus did after being in the grave 4 days. Jesus will call and Pat will answer Job 14:14 What we do in paradise ,will give us the opportunity to experience eternity, which is in our hearts. Once we realize how sacred life is ,we cherish every moment and the provision of Christ’s sacrifice making eternity possible. Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government will accomplish this.

Mr. Cummiskey is the father of one of my best colleagues and friends, Kevin , close to 30 years in and after Asiana Airlines days. I met Father for the first time when he made a visit to Korea to attend commemoration ceremony of Korean War. In fact, Dad and Mom were invited to that ceremony as Korean War Veteran of US Marine fire fighter. He was so proud of being Marine Officer fighting for the freedom of South Korea. On that day when mom and dad arrived at gimpo airport, I and my boss(TS Kang : Kevin’s boss, too) went to the Airport to pick them up with a small and tiny car called, PRIDE of Kia Motors. Mr. TS Kang loves that car so much ! By the time when they came out, two large luggages and mom and Dad and me and of course, Driver TS Kang … They look like a bit embarrassed… But he was Marine soldier after all. Four of us squeezed our selves into that PRIDE with brave and proudly. We headed to Korean traditional restaurants where he made vip reservation: Samchung Gak where performs Korean traditional dance for dinner. Mr. cummiskey really enjoyed Korean beef and music. Mr. Cummiskey, Mr. Kang and I also talk about that good old days thinking of your great stories related to Korean War. Years later we also had a brief days when two of us(with mr. Kang) went to Savanna, GA to say goodbye to your wife when she passed away. That was our last time we met in this world. I wish to see you again someday In the “good heaven”(TS Kang mentioned in his condolences). Mr. Cummiskey, Please Rest In Peace eternally.
