I’ve only known Mr. Pat for two years but as another coworker said “To know Pat was to love him”. I’m so thankful God allowed our paths to cross. God don’t make mistakes and what a blessing it was to know Pat. He was the sweetest, most thoughtful, kindest man to us. I enjoyed every day seeing and talking to him at SOT. There is a void in our group now where Pat was. He is missed very much already. Love you sweet friend. FLY HIGH!!!

Uncle Pat I don’t remember a time my life without knowing you. From me being 3 years old & yelling “hey” to you (and talking your ear off I am sure) from my backyard to seeing you at OMHS events as my girls went through & everything in between. You had a huge, caring heart & always went out of your way to ask how everyone was doing. I am glad Bailey & Lindsey got to know you, even if it was not to the same extent that I did. George always enjoyed chatting with at football & basketball games. You are definitely the brother my dad never had & I appreciate you being there for him through the years. You are loved & will be missed dearly.

Pat was everybody's friend. When I saw Pat I knew I was about to get a great big bear hug and a kiss on the cheek. I love him. Stacey I love you too. Because of Pat we became friends and had some great times. Please know that Fred and I will be there for you and we look forward to spending time together in the future.

Pat (my favorite uncle) I have known you the majority of my life and will miss you much! I always enjoyed our talks about life, work, family and sports. You never had a negative thing to say and always asked how my family and I were doing. I am very thankful for all the side jobs you gave me and tools you passed to me for work. You were a great man Pat and very much loved.

Pat was truly the kindest, most thoughtful man. He will be very missed by all who knew him. Joe went to high school with Pat and played ball with him at Greensprings for years. I was fortunate to get to know him and Stacey because they both worked at school with me. Their love for each other was a joy to behold-it was the comfortable, genuine love that one hopes to find in life. They were lucky to have found each other and will meet again. Rest in peace dear Pat.

Patrick, Patrick, where to begin? For fifty-three years you were a part of my family. As a kid some of my best memories are all the sporting events we attended and the basketball wars we had in Bush Hills. Who can forget the beach trips to Panama City. You were more than a friend and brother-in-law, you were my brother. Debbie told me that when I suffered a heart attack and she rushed to the hospital in a panic you were already there. That seeing your familiar face made a difficult situation easier. I thank you for that and for being there for my family and me. Know that Fred, Debbie, Lori, Johnny, Jeremy, Bailey and Lindsey love you, rest in peace my brother.

To know Pat was to love him. The five of us at SOT were a family and we were so fortunate to have that one hour a day to laugh and cry together, tell stories and vent to each other, talk about our families and get each other's advice on everything. We poked fun at each other and reminisced and were able to say anything at all to each other. There will be a huge missing piece because you aren't there physically anymore Pat, but you are always in our hearts and in our stories. Stacey, thank you for sharing him with us. We love you so much!!

I grew up with Pat & Mike Hall in West End. Their older brother Kearney made sure that we were the best we could be in all sports. Mrs. Hall was like another mother to me. They are and always were an awesome family. Pat would always take time to visit with me whenever we would meet up at events later in life. May Pat rest in the peace of heaven throughout all of eternity and may his wonderful, kind and loving family be comforted with faith and strength to move on . This really hurts. Gods Blessings Mike!

Mr. Pat was one of the first people I met when I came to OMHS 8 years ago. He always spoke to me and encouraged me. I saw him frequently at football games as he was a big supporter of our athletic program. I will miss his constant kindness so much.

I would also like to say that the picture of Pat when he was a little boy looks so much like his niece, Katherine Dorsey!

Pat and I made an instant connection when I was the SRO at OMHS. I led many a convoy to the football games and I always had Pat right behind me. He always said ”if you don’t know where you are going just look for my blinker”. We had many talks about sports, life, politics, or whatever came up. I've missed all those conversations since I left. Strange I thought I saw his bus the other day and when I looked back to see who was driving the bus was gone. Stacey he loved you with all his heart and y'all were the perfect couple. RIP my dear friend and I'll always be looking for that blinker.
