He also had a passion for Muscle Cars.
Patrick was full of Life, Love, and Laughter. He was a Gentle Giant! He “ALWAYS” had a funny comment and always guaranteed a smile. His unforgettable laughter will forever be remembered. “If you don’t have anything good to say about somebody c’mon over here and sit by me” was one of his favorite sayings.
The genuine love, caring, and generosity that this Gentle Giant shared with the world will be greatly missed by all.

Oh…And…to satisfy any of your curiosities YES Patrick did smoke and drink because that’s what made him happy and he left this world being happy with his life, his job, family, and friends.

    The video was a wonderful reminder of why he was such a great person, not just a co worker, but someone who felt like part of your family. He had me the first week I knew him. Thanks for all the smiles and snarkiness you gave me. Bless you all, Richard and family!
