KWTX and the Temple Daily Telegram are reporting the tragic news that Patrick Oliver has passed away at Scott and White Medical Center.

Patrick was the father of Kaitlyn Oliver, who passed away after a boating accident in Temple Lake Park back on June 23rd. When his daughter Kaitlyn became entangled in the propeller of a house boat, Patrick's attempts to save her cost him both his legs. He was pronounced dead at Scott and White Medical Center just after 9:30 AM Thursday morning by Justice of the Peace G. W. Ivey.

A GoFundMe account was set up 11 days ago. The family humbly asks for any assistance possible to help with the medical costs of these two wonderful people who tragically lost their lives in this accident.

Our heartfelt prayers and best wishes go out to Kaitlyn and Patrick's family members. Please join us in sending them our deepest condolences, along with any assistance they may need in the future.
