Today, January 22, 2019, I received a card from Pat's wife. Thinking it was a late Christmas card, I was excited to open it. Tears began to flow as I read her note telling me of Pat's passing.

Pat was one of the BEST supervisors I have ever had. I worked as his assistant at UT-Arlington. Pat was a very special person in my life as he was always encouraging and supporting me as we worked together to promote Landscape Architecture. He treated me in an extremely respectful manner; even in the times we fought over politics (haha). I may have only seen him once or twice after I left the University in 2003 and moved home to Chattanooga, TN; but we kept in touch periodically via e-mail.

He told me of his new beautiful wife and I am so glad she was in his life. I only wish the two of you could have met years earlier. Thank you for loving him and caring for him.

Love and best wishes from Linda Wilson, along with my husband Jerry and son Bradley, who loved him also.

Pat - Thank you for being a good friend to me, my mother and father. What memories - New Year's Eve Christmas tree burning at the Park, trips to football games together with Puck and Grady. If there was anyone that I would have wanted for a brother you would have been the one. Tell we meet again my friend.

Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all. Laura Ingles Wilder

I will always remember Pat as a dear friend, a faithful colleague, and a major force in the professional education of landscape architects. He truly made a singular mark on all who came to know him. I wish peace and solace to his family, friends, and colleagues even as we celebrate his life and achievements. The attached photo shows Pat and Julie at Pat's induction as a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2016.

Pat was a dedicated professional who loved to share his passion for landscape architecture and especially education. I was privileged to know him when I was Provost at UT Arlington. He will be missed by many.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ( Maya Angelou)

The Rusher Family wishes the Taylor Family it's deepest, heart felt condolences. Pat was a kind respectful person & I recall him always been cordial, amicable, and professional. He never hesitated to give a friendly nod & acknowledge your presence in a room or in the halls of the University. He will be missed a great deal by friends and colleagues here at UTA's CAPPA. Thank you for your time at UTA &I feel grateful to have had the privilege to have known him as a fellow educator.
