Just learned today about Pat's passing! Would like to send condolences and prayers out to his family!

Had helped Pat with the powerplant in his '69 roadrunner back in 1986, really a true "gentleman". I met both his sons at the time also!

Gary Sharkey & family!

Me and Cliff are so saddened by the loss of this kind and generous man. I loved all of his stories while I would cut his hair.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Patrick's family, Edeltraud, Patrick, Brian and Michelle.
Patrick was a one of a kind. A very generous and genuine man who had a heart of gold.
I was fortunate to know him as a donor to College of the Desert Foundation and many desert charities.
He will be sorely missed.

One of the great, full of life people whom I had the honor of getting to know here in the Coachella Valley. You will be missed.

Das Schönste,
was ein Mensch hinterlassen kann,
ist ein Lächeln im Gesicht derjenigen,
die an Ihn denken.

Danke dass ich Dich kennen lernen durfte
herzlichen Dank für alles

in silent remembrance

So very, very sorry to get the news of Patrick's death. He and I go way, way back to our freshman dormitory at Deerfield in the Fall of 1949 - sixty-seven years ago. Neither of us was phi beta kappa so we were in a lot of small classes together as well as a dormitory. We were both at college in Providence in the '50s, he at PC and I at Brown so we occasionally did the town together! Pat
