A loving father, husband, and friend, he is greatly missed by all those he has left behind. Patrick had a fulfilling life. His childhood was filled with happy memories. We were both were high school sweethearts and married shortly after graduation in Vale Oregon and have two beautiful daughters. We got word that his father was in ill health and settled in Glenolden, Pa to be there for both his father and mother.
Pat loved Glenolden and the laid back life. He especially loved the location of our home. Pat became a volunteer as a first responder in the ambulance service, served on the city council and was active in his Masonic Lodge where he received his 32 degree.
He loved golfing, fishing, taking drives and spending time with family and friends. On our 25th anniversary we took a trip to Germany to visit friends of mine'.
On May 21, 2008 Pat was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and fought for 9 long, tough months. The day before he passed away he held his arms up and said, "Lord, I'm ready. Please take me home". I never realized the faith he had until that moment.
His favorite saying was Footprints in the Sand. He was very patriotic and always had an American Flag up at his home. Pat always gave me hearts of any kind. He was the Love of my Life and that's what we wrote in any cards we gave each other. He is missed and loved by all of us and never forgotten.
