My fondest memory of Pat is that of his sharing his time and conversation with my son, Michael, on Saturday and Sunday mornings at Mears Marina / Severn River Yacht Club. Michael was still a kid, and and early riser, and so he and Pat would sit together on the pavilion to enjoy their doughnuts, bagels, coffee and orange juice together.
I always thought it was so nice of Pat to engage Michael, and it speaks to Pat's humanity and comradeship.
With sadness and appreciation, Andrea Tursi

Pat was a dear friend for more than thirty years at the Severn River Yacht Club. A genuinely nice person and an avid sailor, we will miss our shared donuts and conversations.

Hi, I'm stephanie, Pat's Hospice volunteer. I met Pat last November. Pat and I have spent alot of time together. Every holiday, and both of our birthdays. Our friendship felt something like family. Our favorite things we did together was sitting in the shade outside and listening to opera music, talked and read books about sailing as well as looking at pictures on Instagram and watching an occasional movie. Pat was a loving man who was always excited to see me and always appreciated our visits. I am truly blessed to have been able to be there with him until his last day.

My dear friend, Pat, was the first person to greet me when I arrived at Mears Marina, we sailed together for years and I helped him tie up after his final sail on PDQ. He supported me throughout my career and I helped him to his final home. No matter what the circumstance, we were friends. He'll always have a place in my heart and from time to time I'll toast him on a Saturday or Sunday morning with a bagel and a donut! Rest well, my friend.
