History of Patrick Fallon Scholarship Fund:
The scholarship fund was established in 2018 in memory of Patrick Fallon, a lifelong Litchfield resident. His family requested that memorial funds be donated to the Litchfield Recreation Basketball program to honor the memory of their beloved family member who had a passion for basketball. He was involved with Litchfield basketball for several years and continued to promote youth to participate in the program in his adult years. Through his love for the game and the generosity of his family, our town youth can participate in youth basketball despite financial hardships.
More About Patrick Fallon:
Basketball was a large part of his youth. He played for several teams including; Litchfield Rec, AAU, LMS, Alvirne, Keene State, and a travel team that represented the USA in Europe. Patrick had charisma, charm and a kind heart. He was deeply loved by his family and friends who described him as a “ray a sunshine”, “was always smiling and could always make you smile”, “had a contagious laugh” “was always playing a sport, hugging someone, and he managed to be soft and strong at the same time.”
He was a free spirit, who loved adventure and found a way to make a positive impression on all those lucky enough to meet him. He enjoyed helping those in need, whether it was lending a hand or helping those less fortunate in the remote countries he lived in, which included Costa Rica and Honduras.
