Patrick was one of the greatest guy I was lucky enough to meet. His pride of family, commitment to his work and those who he surrounded himself with were fortunate to have him in their lives. He will be missed but his memory will be legendary. May God give him peace and may his family know he loved them and was so proud of everything they accomplished. A true friend, Rest In Peace.
Colleen, Denis and Mike.
