"We are deeply saddened by Pat's passing yet know that he is in a good place with Mary Jane, brother Ed, sister Patricia and their beloved golden retrievers. We will remember Pat as the most kind, compassionate, honest and loving person we have had the privilege of knowing. Loved by all that knew him. His sense of humor, smile, and laugh were infectious. Lauri and I are blessed to have been close friends with Pat, Mary Jane and many of his immediate family. He will be missed and forever in our hearts. Rest in peace."

"Pat was always a Gentleman. Even as a youngster he was respectful of other's feelings, ideas and even their idiosyncrasies. A very patient and caring man. It was always a pleasure to be in his company. The world has lost a Good Man. "
