Shocked to hear the news of Pat's sudden passing, Met him back in November of '86 working at what was then the Westin Hotel in Winnipeg. Years later when I moved to Calgary we re-connected...literally days after I moved out there. Spent a "few" evenings over a glass of suds listening to Blues at the king Eddie or enjoying the patio at Red Robin in Kensington. He helped us move in Calgary and was just one of those guys you knew you could count on. Fast forward to our years in Regina - we connected a few times, not nearly enough, but was always good to catch up. The last time I saw Patrick was in the fall of 2011, just prior to moving back to Winnipeg. We exchanged the occasional note & greeting on facebook/messenger over the last several years, now wishing we'd called instead. My condolences to you all. Patrick was one of the great ones.

My deepest condolences Connie. I met Patrick through work and found him to be a most sincere, caring and respectable man. I enjoyed many laughs with him at and away from work. I missed him when he left his job at Warner and now I will miss him even more. I enjoyed riding with him and visiting you both when we crossed paths. I can only hope our paths cross again.

Patrick was a good, dear friend long before he was my brother-in-law, even before I knew Ginette in high school. I fumble for spoken words at a time like this, so I write. I wrote this for you Patrick. I hope you can hear these words that my heart speaks:
To Lose a Friend, by Brian Reimer, September 17, 2019.

To lose a Friend can feel like the End
When the Raptor of Shock descends
To seize it’s fleeting moment.
Talons piercing deep into your gut
It’s hard razor beak rending your heart
Until nothing that remains makes sense.
But the Raptor’s stomach is small
And once it has fed, it’s gone.
And the body can begin to heal.

To lose a friend can feel like Insanity
When the Eel of Confusion strikes
To seize it’s lingering moment.
Not to feast but to shock with brutal intent
Paralysing your mind into chaos
As it flees like the coward it is.
But the storm in your head will pass
As your memories start to re-build.
And the mind can begin to heal.

To lose a Friend can feel like Eternity
When the Python of Loss grabs hold
To seize it’s slow agonizing moment.
For it knows it has you and it is patient
It’s muscles squeezing the life from your lungs
And the light from your Soul
With deliberate stolid delight.
Only acceptance that part of you has died also, forever
Will release you from the longer Death.
And the Soul can begin to heal.

To lose a Friend can bring Joy and Peace
When the Chimera of Death is defeated
And Shock, Confusion and Loss bow before Love.
Love for the Friend that’s gone.
Love for the Love They gave.
Love for the memories shared.
For the place in your heart They remain.
Love that will never forget.
Love that will always go on.
For the knowledge that we were blessed
To know and love such a Friend , now gone.

My deepest condolences to you Connie, and Germaine. My heart dies every time I think of your loss. And to Gerry and Barb, Ginette and my 3 beautiful girls who've lost their Uncle. Love shall prevail.

Today is our anniversary. I find myself thinking about our wedding day, the best day of my life, and what we would be doing today to celebrate our life together. You were an incredible person. You could be frustrating and stubborn, but you were also thoughtful, kind, and considerate, and I knew I could always count on you. Every day with you was an adventure. Every day without you has been painfully unbearable. Every day I hope that I will wake up, that none of this will be real, and you will walk in the door. Every day you are not here is one more day I don’t get to see your face, hear your laugh, hold you in my arms, kiss you, or tell you I love you.
We had many amazing times together and I am very grateful for the years that we had. You are in my heart always. You are my husband, my best friend and the love of my life. I know how much you love me and I love you. Forever.❤️

I met Patrick through his lovely caring wife Connie at the City of Regina. Patrick was always the first one to crack a joke or lighten any mood. The last time I got to speak with Patrick was in the airport back from Mexico when our flight back home to Regina was delayed. We shared stories of our interesting Mexican cab rides we endured and laughed at how things at the city were the same as when I had left 2 years ago.

Patrick you will be missed by all and always cherished by your love, Connie. Rest In Peace Patrick
