I'm so saddened to hear that we've lost Pat. He tuned and repaired my piano for the last two years. I enjoyed his cheerful visits and hearing him play and talk about the piano. I wish I had heard him play the trumpet. He was a delightful person and musician. All my sympathies to his wife June and their family.

I was privileged to perform with Pat in a rhythm and blues band many years ago, he was a consummate professional and brought style and substance to the stage. He was a good man and always fun to be around. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

My most sincere condolences and prayers are lifted up for June and the entire family. I just now learned of Pats going home to be with his Heavenly Father and my feelings run from sadness for our temporary loss to joy and happiness knowing he is now in the presence of his Lord and Savior. I met Pat back in the early 90's when we were both a part of Louisiana Fire and I am honored to be counted as one of his friends. He was the ultimate gentleman at all times, funny, with a love of laughter, yet serious when it came time to be serious and it obviously goes without saying, a wonderful musician. He will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

May God bless and comfort you in the days ahead.

Several years ago after enjoying one of Pat's musicals as he came off of the stage, I greeted him with Mr. Henry. Thereafter we always said "Mr Henry. Mr Henry" as we shook Hands. We never established a family relationship, but I always considered it so. I was saddened when he left our church, and wanted to express my disappointment, but was unable to. Now I'll have to wait to greet him again in the realm of our Lord. May the Lord bless you June in your time of sadness. Lawrence Henry - Hot Springs Village, AR

I have very fond memories of Pat. He had a great personality and was a gifted musician. He was the first boy that gave me a big box of Valentine candy and of course he asked my parents first. Always the gentleman. My prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.

We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss Pat so much. He was always the bright spot in the day when he came to the piano gallery to tune. Pat always had a smile and a way of making everyone feel better just for knowing him. We will miss him dearly. Steve & Beckey Witkowski
