He was born in Cambridge on January 9, 1945 and was a son of the late Frank and Trilby (Boutilier) Daley.

He proudly served in the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. Following his discharge, Patrick was a Police Officer in Chelmsford for 33 years, retiring in 2004.

Patrick enjoyed vacationing and boating on Lake Winnipesaukee, traveling to New Brunswick, Canada for the annual Miramachi Irish Festival and attending his grandchildren's events. Most of all, Patrick cherished spending time with his family.

I have fond memories of Pat from when we grew up in Cambridge and later met when I moved to Chelmsford. We had many conversations standing outside of St. Mary's church on Sundays. I will always remember his infectious smile and laugh. Rest in peace, my friend.

To the Daley family, so Sorry to hear of your loss. Brian, Kevin and Tim, I have such fond memories of your father coaching me during hockey and baseball seasons and remember seeing him at the crosswalk by St. Mary’s on the way into church. To this day, I still recall a baseball incident , when Brian and I played on the Tigers (110 fields) , I was in the warm up circle (or close to it) and “Coach Daley” walked by and in mid swing he took one off the temple. I am pretty sure after that at bat, I may not have played the rest of that game. Coach Daley was a terrific coach and father and many of my childhood sports memories had Pat involved, he will be missed, but not forgotten. Thoughts and prayers are with you all. Peter Gorham and family

My deepest condolences to the Daley family. I’ve known Pat for a very long time. My father was a cop and so was my ex. He was always there for me. Even let me slide with an inspection
Sticker that was a year old. He will be greatly missed and always in our hearts.

I shared a personal story with Tim about how my respect for adults, and law enforcement was changed in a single interaction with this very special man. He saw something even my parents couldn't and was able to communicate with me in a way that more than likely saved my life. I always say I want to die knowing I left the world a better place than when I arrived- Mr. Daley did just that, and so I know he was received by heaven with a standing ovation. His affect on the entire community of Chelmsford will echo for years to come, and he will never be forgotten. So sorry for your loss, my cards will be in the mail soon. xoxo
