Patrick, I will surely miss you. Missed the good times while working at the Episcopal Church Center. Also our evenings at the Alamo. Rest in peace my dear friend.

This news has saddened my heart. Patrick was always such an AMAZING and talented person. He was such a great friend to so many and had no problem putting a smile on your face! He was always right there when you needed a friend and I don't remember one person that didn't like him! R.I.P Patrick!!

I am so sorry to hear of Pat's passing. He was a childhood friend and I have many happy memories of playing tag and hide and seek as it got dark, in Korten's field, climbing the cherry trees (once again in Korten's field, lol) to pick sour cherries and eat them, while we made faces and laughed.
I remember running to hug each in the parking lot between our homes on Susquehanna Avenue, when we were able to return after Hurricane Agnes.
In more recent years, thanks to social media, Pat and I were able to get in touch again. It was obvious that he remained the kind hearted, good person he has always been.
My heart goes out to his loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
