Patrick was a lover of gardening and had quite a green thumb as he had grown some pretty amazing tomato plants that were his pride and joy. Patrick loved people especially children. He was a true advocate to any child that he felt may not be protected or heard and would often go out of his way to make sure any child was happy, giving the change in his pocket to see them smile.
Patrick was a member of the True Life Community and he loved and respected his Pastor Chris Daum and his church family. He would regularly meet his buddies at Tim Horton’s Dean Matthews, Thomas Hurley, Bill Stull and Max Carey. He was loved by so many and we are all so honored to have known him as our brother in Christ.
