I had many good years of knowing Pat from school. Also, a great guy to know & have so many laughs & fun to be around. Pat could talk to you about anything to make you laugh at & to have good feelings about anything around you. Pat knew how to have fun & laugh at life. Will deeply miss a good person, God be with Pat & his family.

In all my years I never met anyone with a zest for life that Pat had. He would light up any room he walked into. And that booming laugh that was infectious. He will be missed by many that were blessed to know and love him.

I had just turned 18 when Pat became my brother-in-law. Too short on life experience he became also a big brother to me. Like his Dad, Pete, he was big and strong and could be loud and boisterous. But also like his Dad he needed to be big to hold a big heart. Hard working and generous. He has left us way too soon. Like so many, I will miss him! Deepest condolences to all his family.
