April 8, 1960 – August 13, 2018
Last August Patrick Curtin died by suicide. He had unrecognized and untreated severe anxiety and depression. Significant catalysts took place the week prior to his death.
Patrick was the fifth child born to Louise and Edward Curtin of Cornelius, Oregon. After his graduation from OSU in 1982, he made his home in Port Angeles, WA. Pat worked as a Chemical Engineer and later as a Financial Planner.
Pat held himself to the highest standards, both ethically and morally. Pat lived his life committed to Christ. He loved the outdoors and spending time with his grandchildren. Throughout life, he was generous with his time and enjoyed volunteering, coaching, and helping others.
Mental crisis is largely denied, and often misunderstood. To help fight this stigma, Patrick’s loved ones established this memorial fund in his memory. All memorial contributions made in his name will go towards Crisis Services at PBH. Please click here to donate in memoriam of Patrick.

May 19, 1972 – March 18, 2019
Port Angeles native, Teresa Marie van Dyken, passed away of natural causes on March 18, 2019. In lieu of flowers, Teresa’s loved ones established this memorial fund in her memory. All memorial contributions made in Teresa’s name will go towards the Residential Program and Arlene Engel Home.
Teresa was born on May 19, 1972, to Jeanne Marie (Hart) van Dyken and Martin Leendert van Dyken. She graduated from Sequim High School and then went to cosmetology school.
She was a beautician in both Port Angeles and the Seattle area. Teresa was also very artistic.
Teresa began to struggle with mental illness and hearing voices. In spite of this battle, she would respond with love and a helping hand when she saw need, even if it meant going without for herself.
