Pat was very compassionate, and had a smile for everyone he met. He loved the natural outdoors and was an avid fisherman. He lived the golden rule, as he treated everyone around him with caring and respect. His sense of humor was appreciated by all who knew him. For eight years, he faced great physical challenges in his fight with terminal brain cancer, but through all of his adversity, he remained positive and cheerful, and ended his mortal life as he had lived it, with dignity and grace, always thinking of others before himself.
