Pat was a great guy. I never heard him say anything bad about any one. He had a great sense of humor, and a lot of fun to work with. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

We always enjoyed spending time with Pat while listening to live bands at the Moose. He was wonderful to talk to. He was so smart, had great advice and a level headed view. We will miss him.

Hi Pat. I am going to truly miss working with you. You were an amazing person. I learned so much for you, and I will miss your sense of humor. My "well deserved breaks" will not be the same without you.
