Pat was one of the good guys. When people talk about How they don’t make men the way they used to, Pat comes to mind. What a tough act to follow. I’ll always be grateful to him for how he loved, protected and cared for my good friend Margie. The love his children had for him told the same story.
Losing Pat is truly a loss to all who knew him.
Rip Dear Pat.
