Patrick Robert Kolment, 55, peacefully passed away Sept. 15, 2020, at his home.

Patrick was born in 1965 in Massapequa, Long Island, N.Y., to Yolande Kolment, of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, and Robert G. Kolment of Manhattan, N.Y., alongside his three siblings, Nina, Richard and Dennis. Patrick was the youngest.

Patrick grew up on Long Island and graduated from Amityville Memorial High School in 1983. It was on Long Island that Patrick began to cultivate a large network of close friends and associates. In Laura Tanzer, Patrick found his soulmate. Patrick worked hard to achieve the trade title of master electrician and would also learn multiple different skills. He was a Swiss army knife, a man of many talents and a jack of all trades.

Patrick’s unique spirit allowed him to cultivate some of the closest and most hilarious friendships to such an extent that they became extensions of his own family. They would regularly keep in touch despite being states away. They include Don Prager, John Lamendola, Dennis Byrne, Ricky Roche, Mike Flyntz, Tom Flyntz, Danny Mormando, Edward Scotti and Stephen Tuzzolino.

In 1995, Patrick moved with his family to Belfast. It was here that Patrick would further embrace his love for the outdoors. In 1997, Patrick became a father to his son, Chase Kolment. Throughout his years in Maine and in New York, Patrick would lend a hand to those in need and expect nothing in return. Patrick’s life and beliefs, which he passed on to those around him, will forever bind us to the idea of how beautiful a soul he had.

Patrick is survived by his son, Chase; his mother, Yolande; his sister, Nina Hallbert; two brothers, Richard Kolment and Dennis Kolment; and his brother-in-law, David Hallbert. Patrick held his nephews and nieces exceptionally close, and they include Perry Hallbert, Desneige Hallbert, Rachel Lanier, Matthew Kolment and Jared Kolment. Patrick’s part in his family was large, and his experiences and stories stretch far and wide within the Kolment and Poulin families. We will forever hold Patrick dearly in our hearts and realize the life and principles he practiced.

Family and friends may gather at the Riposta Funeral Home, 182 Waldo Ave., Belfast, Tuesday, Sept. 22, from 5 to 7 p.m., for visitation. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 10 a.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 81 Court St., Belfast.
