Tuesday, July 9, 2019Over the years, I spent many months in West Branch at the library, and one of the greatest pleasures of my time there was the chance to visit with Pat and Mary--at the library, at Herb and Lou's for pizza, and at their home. Like everyone else they came in contact with, they made me feel like family.

Friday, July 5, 2019Our family worked with Pat and Mary while hosting an AFS student from Brazil . Then thru the years we would chat with him when we saw him. He was a wonderful compassionate , kind, funny person with which to work . We always admired his dedication to the young people involved in the program and his concern for them and us as “parents “ to them.

Friday, July 5, 2019Pat was my boss for a few years and a treasured coworker for many many more. He loved to talk (!) but also loved to listen and to help you any way he could. He was my buddy and I will miss him.

Thursday, July 4, 2019Pat would always ask me how his children behaved when he drove me home after babysitting. I'd say "they were fine," and he'd say, "No, tell me really. You can be honest..." We'd laugh... Sorry, Liz and Joanna! Sending a hug!

Thursday, July 4, 2019He was the best uncle. I remember roughhousing with him when we were little, and as we grew up he was easy to talk with about anything. He will always be missed.

Wednesday, July 3, 2019My favorite uncle, my Godfather, a pal I could talk with about anything and everything. From climbing on him and playing football as a child, to attending a fireworks convention a few years ago, all my memories of him are good ones. He would be in town and just drop by to say hi "for a minute". Two hours later we would both be hoarse, and he would "really really need to get going". That was about the 30 minute countdown. Rest in Peace, Uncle Pat. You will always have my admiration and respect.

Wednesday, July 3, 2019I’ve known my Uncle Pat my whole life. I was fortunate enough to have lunch with him and my daughter in January. He was the same man over all the years - articulate, engaging, kind, and a world-class teller of stories and anecdotes. I celebrate my memories of this wonderful man.

Monday, July 1, 2019I worked at the West Branch Times for several years and spent many hours in his archive room at the Hoover Library. He was always a warm and welcoming soul and I very much enjoyed our visits. I have no doubt he treated every researcher he came in contact with at Hoover with the same spirit and will be missed by many.
