Sunday, September 6, 2022, marks the first anniversary of Patt Denihan’s passing, a solemn occasion memorized by her colleagues at HDS Companies (HDS). Those who knew Patt reflect on the undeniable impact she had on everyone around her; we remember her passion.
On Saturday, July 9, Patt’s family, friends, and a team of her HDS colleagues gathered for a Celebration of Patt’s Life. Together they shared memories, recognized, and celebrated her life and unwavering lifelong commitment to advancing the Affordable Housing Community and First-Time Homebuyer programs. Patt’s contributions have significantly impacted the local community and the national Affordable Housing Industry.
Her passing reminds everyone at HDS that we all share the honor and responsibility of carrying on the work Patt loved so much. We vow to continue to hold ourselves accountable as individuals, leaders, and an organization to continue supporting the Affordable Housing Community with the relentless urgency it deserves.
Thank you for remembering Patt, the work she dedicated her life to, and reflecting on who she was and what she stood for.
