Celebrating the life of

Patrick Anthony Mastrianni

March 16, 1989 - March 18, 2022

Patrick Anthony Mastrianni

Patrick Anthony Mastrianni, beloved son of Monica Mastrianni and the late Anthony Mastrianni, went to the loving arms of His Lord on March 16, 2022, his 33rd birthday.

Born in Plainfield, NJ, Patrick was raised in Effingham County, graduating from South Effingham Highschool, and attended USC Bluffton, transferring to Kennesaw State University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. Patrick participated in basketball and cross-country team sports during his school years.

A true lover of people and a humble servant of our Lord, Patrick enjoyed jobs for the Green Hills YMCA in Nashville, TN and most recently at Page International in Savannah, GA. More importantly to him, Patrick loved connecting people, making new friends, supporting small and local businesses, traveling and sports of all kinds. Although Patrick felt loneliness and despair at the end of his life, he spent 32 years and 364 days investing in relationships with others! He had the most giving of hearts.

He leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Monica, his sister, Alyssa Mastrianni-Wyatt, and brother-in-law Holten, step-brother Clay Hester, wife Helen and their children Sanders, Lizzie and Claire, step-brother Wesley Hester, wife Jessica and their son, Cohen. He is also survived by his grand-mother, Dixie Diffenderfer, Uncle Bill Diffenderfer, his wife Dianne, Aunt Rachel Ritchie and husband Philip. Cousins April, Will and Robin Diffenderfer. Paternal aunts Andrea Hodge and Valerie Mastrianni, paternal cousins Charles and Leslie Hodge and a number of well-loved extended family members.

Patrick was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Dominick and Anne Mastrianni, maternal grandfather, Bill Diffenderfer, his father Anthony Mastrianni and his stepfather Thomas C. Hester.

Patrick will be desperately missed but we know that he is healed and resting in the arms of the one who loves him more than we can possibly fathom. We celebrate his life, salvation, and his spiritual legacy.

The celebration of Patrick’s life will be held at Isle of Hope United Methodist Church, Savannah, GA at 4:00pm on Friday, March 25, with a visitation following in the Fellowship Hall. All are welcome.

A second celebration of life and internment will be held at Sharon Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN at 12:00pm on Saturday, April 9th. We welcome all family and friends who would like to join us there. More detailed information to follow.

Remembrances may be made to Xcel Strategies and Green Hills YMCA Youth Sports, both organizations holding a special place in his heart.

Green Hills YMCA: 

Patrick worked at the Green Hills YMCA in Nashville, TN for 3.5 years.  Friends say, “Everyone recognized Patrick from the YMCA when we were out and about; they remembered Patrick because he made them feel special. If there is one thing Patrick Mastrianni valued in this life, it was relationships.”

Jesus took delight in raising a widows son back to life. We can just imagined how happy he will be to unite Monica with her beloved husband and son. The originator of families has provided for Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government to resurrect our loved ones. Isaiah 9:6,7 John 5:28,29 We can be comforted that being created with eternity in our hearts, God has made it possible through Christ’s sacrifice. There is nothing that can keep us from God’s love. Romans 8:38,39 The paradise that was intended originally will soon be realized. JW.org “Enjoy Life Forever” Warm Christian Love, Sandy

Dearest Monica and Family, Jody and I are crushed. We loved Patrick and benefitted each time from our visits with him. It was an honor to work with him and your family with Be the Match and later to connect as he would stop by USCB just to say hi. We love you, we are praying for you, may God give you some peace during this time. What a fitting tribute.

Patrick exuded kindness, particularly giving his full attention to our son when Nate visited the Green Hills Y for the Full Circle exercise class. When Nate died suddenly from a seizure almost three years ago, Patrick posted a touching tribute. In the years following Nate's death, he visited our home occasionally, always concerned about our emotional well-being. He was a gentle and generous soul who will be missed.

- The Nolans, Nashville, TN

My thoughts and prayers go out to Patrick's family and friends. So sorry for your loss.

May Patrick Rest In Peace.

Patrick was the warmest , personal ,ethical human being I've ever known and loved. He loved his heritage, he studied his Italian heritage with love and humor. He often referred and imitated the language of The God Father in fun. Our favorite "Whats soma matter you? " He always remembered to communicate with the family on holidays and birthdays. I always felt his warmth and attention. I will miss him so much! At times he was a bridge for all of us. You will always be loved Patrick! Take care of each other Monica and Alyssa, I could not imagine your pain at this time!

- Valerie Mastrianni, Dallas, texas

Jeri saw a FB post and relayed the news to me. We are so sorry to hear and pray for your comfort. The obituary was so positive and uplifting!

- Ed and Jeri Loomis, Miramar Beach, FL

Monica and Alyssa, It is with a very heavy heart that we saw this about Patrick. I can remember picking up the kids and taking them to the skating ring. Patrick had just gotten his license and was so excited. Our hearts breaks with your loss but rejoice in knowing that Patrick is now with his dad and in the Lords arms where he will have peace forever. We will keep you all in our prayers.

- Charlie and Donna Ogletree , Rincon, Ga

My prayers are with you Monica and Alyssa. Patrick was such a compassionate and caring young man. He often mentioned each of you when we met - I was his care giver through my church’s Stephen Ministry. He loves each of you very much!

- Jerry Pfister, Nashville, TN

Although I didn’t know Patrick well, he was more than thoughtful when we crossed paths. He saw me going through a hard time - two weeks later I received a “thinking of you” card with a very kind message. I am very saddened by this news and my prayers go out to his friends and family during this time.

- Natalie, Nashville, TN

To Ms. Monica and family, my heart and prayers of partitions go up to my Lord Jesus Christ who is the giver of life and may His Grace be with you all. I met Patrick through a mutual friend of ours. He would always smile and carry out a great sense of humor. So may his best memories live long through out the years.

- Camelle Kimble , Savannah, GA

Patrick was one of my best friends. I'll always cherish the moments playing on the basketball team together or meeting up for FCA events. Even after high school I stayed in contact with Patrick and we'd always schedule to meet over the summer when we were both back in town. The verse that comes to mind when I think of Patrick is Philippians 2:3-4 "Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Every time I texted or met up with Pat he truly wanted to hear how I was doing in life and was always asking how he could help me. His kind and loving personality is one I will always remember. His corny jokes, big laugh, and beautiful smile, I will never forget. Monica and Alyssa, I am praying for you and the family and want you to know how deeply I wish I could be there right now. May God provide you supernatural peace and comfort in this time.

- Tyler Cox, Seoul, South Korea

I was blessed to teach Patrick at SEHS. He was a beautiful soul and I can't imagine how much he will be missed by all who knew him. My prayers are with you.

- Renee Hatcher , Rincon , GA

Patrick was one of the best coworkers I’ve had the pleasure of working with and not just at the YMCA. He was intentional and kind. He was warm and caring. He was quite simply everything a friend should be. I’ll miss him greatly.

Monica and Alyssa, our hearts are broken for you. You are in our prayers.

I send my sincere condolences to Monica and Alyssa. Today's memorial service was a beautiful celebration of the life of a wonder person and a true confirmation of the impact Patrick had on all who were lucky enough to have known him. I was fortunate to have been his teacher and meet his wonderful family.
