Pat was always a good friend , though I have not seen him in many years we were friends growing up . Pat was always one of the good guys . I grew up with all the Hunter kids and was friends with them all.. Pat would always take any opportunity to help someone .. He always had a very genuinely caring nature.. I remember when I first returned home from Vietnam in 1969 . I had only been back in Charleston a few hours and had not had much chance to contact old friends yet when there was a knock on the front door.... Pat had pulled his VW Beetle right up to the front door and when I answered the door he hugged me and then opened the hood on the Beetle and the whole front was full of beer packed in ICE..... The Welcome home party was on..... Pat may be gone for now but Certainly never forgotten for a minute... RIP my Freind...

My thoughts are with Pats’ family. I so enjoyed my time working with Pat. He spoke of Scott often and was so supportive when Bunny was ill. Pat was a great guy and I am sure he will be greatly missed.
