Pat was an awesome father -in-law and Paw Paw. I remember one story when Sean was two weeks old with colic , would not quit crying and I was so tired. Pat came and got Sean. He walked Sean upon his shoulder back and forth down the driveway for at least two hours. He then brought Sean back to me and he was not crying anymore. I have a lot more wonderful memories of Pat but this is one of my favorites.
A life long friend, neighbor, worked together at Goodyear for 15 years. A great person, good friend and co-worker.
Pat was such a nice man. I remember him at “Twice Fed” and Redeemer luncheon. God Bless.
