Pat was the best of the best, kind, caring little leprechaun. Family, friends, laughter and Notre Dame were his passions. He had an infectious smile and such a great twinkle in his eyes! We will miss you dear friend.❤️

My Prayers and thoughts go out to Mr Omally's family. I enjoyed seeing both Mr and Mrs Omalley come in. He was a wonderful and caring man. Always so funny. He will be missed.

Annie, mom O’Malley, Pat and the rest of the fighting Irish O’Malley clan, my sincerest condolences.

Pop O’Malley was so full of life. I remember first meeting him many moons ago while an undergrad at UD and after one night cap at the Marriott with him and Annie, I knew I had found my surrogate Irish dad and that Annie and I would be friends for life!

Thank you for all the laughs and fond memories.

I love you guys!

I visited Pat in El Cajon, CA on two occasions, once with Aunt Margie & once with my sister, Liz. We had such great fun running around the avocado orchard and visiting his school & surrounding area. Pat had so many stories & exploits to tell. I was also fortunate to visit him & attend a football game @ Notre Dame. He was a great host showing off his campus & of course, Pat singing the Notre Dame fight song is a very vivid memory for me.. Will miss you Pat & your great smile! Our love, thoughts, & prayers to your lovely family.

The Callaghan’s are a large family but when the O’Malleys came for a visit there was always a large party on Arlington Place. There was a lot of laughter and story telling, usually lead by my Dad, Uncle Marty.. Pat would visit with us on school vacations and he and my Dad would tell stories at the dinner table, where we would all sit for hours listening and sharing. Pat was such a genuine person who cared for everyone and what was happening in their lives. Pat was a blessing in the lives of anyone who knew him. He will be missed by many. God bless all of you.
