On Tuesday, February 16 2021, Patrick Andrew Bleil passed away at the age of 45.

Pat was born in Painesville, Ohio, on January 21, 1976, to Chauncey and Mary Ann Bleil.

Survivors include his loving parents in Mentor, sister, Megan Bleil of Kensington, MD, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He also leaves behind his fuzzball fur friend Fritzy, who remains inconsolable.

A lifelong skateboard enthusiast, Pat “the Baron” Bleil was the bedrock of the community of local rippers. He could often be found working at the skate shop or tearing it up with his friends from coast to coast.

After graduating from Mentor High in 1994, he moved to Huntington Beach, CA where he spent the next 10 years. He held various jobs, but his favorite was working for Vans. At one point, the company put him in charge of getting some young pro skaters to events around the world. He spoke fondly of his trips to Germany and New Zealand.

After leaving California, he spent time in Arizona, achieving a certificate in motorcycle maintenance. He moved back home to Mentor in 2008 where he was living and working at the time of his passing.

Like most of his family, Pat was a true animal lover. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends via PayPal at or via check to PO Box 172, Uniontown, OH 44685.

The Bleilmonster’s love of skateboarding could only be exceeded by his love for his friends. If you had a friend in Pat, you had a friend for life. He was empathetic, quick witted, sarcastic, and downright hilarious. His clever way with words was unmatched. He would help you with any problem or any project and he believed in you even when you didn’t believe in yourself. He will be missed immensely.

Due to Covid restrictions, a private burial will take place.

An absolute rager will be held at a later date.

I came back to Mentor for a visit with my family one Christmas and Megan and Patrick were at my house - Megan, about age 4, was "helping" my dad, Ray Ladwig, while he was out working on his car, hood up, in the driveway. It was freezing cold, but that didn't stop Megan from staying around with my father. I offered to take Patrick somewhere to get him out of the cold. I put mittens on him, but neglected to line up his thumbs properly in their proper place and he stared down at the empty knitted thumbs, knowing that something was not quite right, but didn't say a word. He was only about two, but he was such a sweet child and didn't complain one bit.

Mary Ann frequently had our family over for dinner and fixed very nice meals for the gang. Instead of eating the food Mary Ann had prepared, Patrick would only eat one cold, uncooked hot dog from the package - seemed so unappetizing to me, but that was all he would eat.

My mother, Martha Ladwig, one time was leaving the Bleil house next door after visiting with Mary Ann and ran into Patrick as he got off the school bus walking up the drive. He was a teenager at that point and she just felt the urge to give him a hug. She asked him first if that would be ok. He graciously answered quietly, "yes", so Mom gave him a quick squeeze and he went on his way.

Years later on another visit to Mentor, I was not so thoughtful and insisted that Mary Ann give me his address in Fairport Harbor where he was living with some buddies so I could stop by and just say "hi". I hadn't seen him in a long time and wanted to touch base. Mary Ann warned me that he would not be happy with her for giving me that information. I did stop by and he opened the door for me and was not rude, but wasn't too excited to see me there. I'm sorry, Patrick, if I invaded your privacy.
I miss the darling little elf-like child he was. Though not saying a lot (at least to me), he still managed to project his unique joy and enthusiasm for life. I wish I could have seen more of him over the years and known him better as an adult. I'm sure lots of people have fond memories to share and I hope this proves to be of comfort to Chan, Mary Ann and Megan and all who loved him!

I have so many great memories of Patrick. One that stands above them all is when he and I rode the Greyhound bus to California the summer following our senior year in high school. Neither of us had traveled so far on our own at that point. The innocence was obvious at times I’m sure. After the three day bus ride, we arrived at our destination. A small one room bu station in the San Bernardino desert. I excused myself to the restroom and came back to Pat pleading with a local lady to return his backpack. She wanted $2 for her valet service. The exchange between them was kind, hilarious, and so, so much Patrick. Ince we got some change we gave her the $2 and she released his luggage. There was no way we were gonna give her a 20. We may have been innocent, but we weren’t suckers. That trip led to many travels for us both separately, but whenever we did come back together, it seemed as if no time had passed at all. That’s the kind of friend Pat was.
