Dr. Patrick Anthony Correnty passed away unexpectedly on October 1, 2018 at his home in Washington, D.C. Patrick was born in Stamford, Connecticut on March 11th, 1965 and is survived by his mother Joan Correnty and his father Anthony Correnty.

A 1983 graduate of Darien High School, Patrick went on to receive his undergraduate degree at Washington and Jefferson College, attended Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and conducted his residency at Georgetown University where he was awarded Outstanding Resident. Dr. Correnty has been a Washingtonian Magazine Top Doctor several times.

Patrick had a passion for life. As a youth, he had a strong desire to become a physician. In high school, he joined Post 53, Darien’s volunteer emergency medical service. His dedication to the field led him to continue on and achieve his dream. He had his own practice in Arlington, Virginia, since 1998. His compassionate ways helped many people in the community, making every patient a top priority both clinically and personally. He served on the Virginia Hospital Center in many capacities including Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Vice Chief of Staff.

Patrick was a world traveler spending hours learning about the cultures, customs and foods of the places he visited. He made friends easily even if they did not speak the same language. His contagious laugh made everyone smile. He also enjoyed cooking and entertaining both in his home and in support of charitable organizations. For the past several years, he cooked and served Thanksgiving dinner to all the residents of the Phoenix Houses.

In addition to being a dedicated physician, Patrick was a devoted son, loving brother and uncle. Besides his parents, Anthony and Joan Correnty, Patrick leaves behind sisters, Deborah Hernandez and Jill Correnty-Zusman, and brother, Dante Correnty. He also leaves behind nephews Rafael Hernandez, Miguel Hernandez, Zachary Zusman and niece Gabriela Hernandez.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, October 13th at 11:00 a.m. at St. John Church, Post Road, Darien, CT.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made in his memory to Darien EMS/Post 53, P.O. Box 2066, Darien, CT 06820.
