A native of Arden, he was the son of Darren DeAngelo Gilliam and Kim Victoria Williams Gilliam. Patrick was a graduate of TC Roberson High School and was a true Washington Redskins fan, in which he loved attending games with his dad. He loved and played baseball, travel basketball, and football throughout his life. Motorcycle riding was a great joy of his life.

He was a gentle giant with a heart of gold who had a smile which would light up any room. Patrick loved and cherished the time he spent playing with his nephew John, and spent countless hours with his best friend Eric Robinson. He was always there with a helping hand for anyone who needed it.
