Pat was a wonderful person and a great friend. My fondest memories was vacationing with Pat on the Jersey Shore in the 80's. I got to know him much better and we used to walk to the used bookstore to get our reading material for the beach. I remember when I came back to UD in 2002 for my 20 year reunion, Pat remembered that my mom had passed away that year and that really touched me. Blessings to Melissa and the kids and God be with you!
I have many fond memories of Flanagan's and Pat. The best is the evening Mark and I talked about what if we had a life together. Love and peace be with your family. Thank you for making the Dayton area a fun and great place to live and attend school.
Great man. Friend. Best St Patrock's Day party I have ever been to. You will be missed. UD class of 1977.
Mr. Pat was very customer friendly, he smiled a lot and was such a very nice person. Mr. Pat you will be missed. To the Family: Mr. Pat is at peace now, may not your hearts be troubled, he 's in GOD'S HOUSE! Barb, & Jeff (RTA)
I WORKED IN THE BAR WHEN IT FIRST OPENED. Pat treated us after we finished working. RIP
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Flanagans. Pat you will be missed. Thanks for the many years of friendship.
Pat brought me aside and was a father figure after my pops passed away from cancer. He has been a father figure to many and is going to be missed.
Pat was a good friend during my years as an undergrad at UD in the early 80's and also afterwards when I worked at NCR after graduation. I'll never forget his legendary St. Patty's Day parties.
RIP - Pat. God Bless and God Speed.
Thank you Pat for all you did to boost my career goals as I was the host of Flyer Feedback live from Flanagan's from 1999-2006. Your encouragement and caring for me and my family is what always stood out. You have made a difference in my life and countless others. Thank you Pat for being a good and loyal friend!
We shared so many wonderful times with Pat at Flanagan's during our UD years. He was a special man who will be dearly missed, and will live on in the hearts of generations of UD alumni. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Pat was a great guy, always had a kind word.
Tank and everyone at Tank' s are very sadden by Pat's passing. He was a great friend and icon in Dayton. "You will be missed my friend . " Tank
Pat will be greatly missed. I loved to going to Flanagan's to see his smiling face. He always greeted me with a hug and a smile. A great lose for Dayton.
Although we are now in Southern California, for many years we loved going to Flanagans after working our days at NCR and starting our St pattys Day right there bright and early in the morning! We will miss you Pat!
Pat was a great part of my childhood and a tremendous part of the Kettering and Dayton Community. We will all miss him.
Our condolences - the Graver Family
My condolences, I was only at Flanagan's Pub once, but I have never forgotten that...
Very sad to hear about Pat's passing, a true loss to Dayton and the UD community
We at Box 21 were very sad to hear of Pat's passing.
I remember seeing and talking to Pat back in "the day" when the hangouts were Cassano's at T & C...the Parkmore on Marshall(?)...and the Country Kitchen on Wilmington. He was driving his orange GTO. Why do I remember Pat? Pat was easy to talk to...had a sense of humor...would talk to those younger than him (I was...but not by much). He always had a humorous glint in his eye...and a good thing to say. I left Ohio in the military in 1971, returned in 1975...was at the opening of Flanagans in 1976...and he remembered me...as I remembered him. Pat was (is) an all around good man. I send condolences...and being half Irish...I know that he was in heaven before the Devil knew that he was gone. God bless him and his family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time,
Pat, we miss you already. It doesn't seem possible that such a kind and generous man could be gone. RIP. Bob Bartlett and Barb Sager
Melissa - Secret Smiles of Dayton got it's start in Flanagan's and with the generosity of Pat. He will be so missed! God bless you all.

Pat didn't have to befriend Devin and I, but he did, like hundreds of others. I miss you, Pat.
I will never forget Pat. The time in my life I shared at Flanagan's was the best time in my life. Pat will share a special place in my memories. Glad to have metcha man...
I worked at Flanagan's in '85 and always enjoyed spending time with Mr. Flanagan. He was always so generous, kind, and welcoming. He was a great boss and i'll always have fond memories. RIP Mr. Flanagan. Thoughts and prayers to your family.
My deepest sympathies. Pat and his rambunctious siblings lived just two houses away growing up. We never spent much time together but I had the opportunity to get to know Pat when I went to UD. He was kind, supportive, and very much involved in the betterment of our community. God bless you Pat. You have left us much too soon.
Pat will be greatly missed by many! If the measure of a man is how many friends he has - Pat was a Goliath! If the measure of a man is how much he struggles and overcomes then he was one of the greatest men I have ever known. May you see the face of God and experience the fullness of His glory!
Pat - what a kind and great soul!
Enjoyed my college years at UD as Pat and Flanagan's Pub was a major cultural institution that added to my growth!
Peace be with you and your family at this time of your sorrow.Our thoughts are with you.
Pat was always gracious and enjoyed life, I will never forget how proud he was on adopting his first daughter. It was not a surprise that he wanted to do it again. Will never forget him and the good times I enjoyed in his place! For the NCAA I would come over for the first and second rounds from my office at NCR and enjoy a long lunch with Pat. Peace be with his family I know this is a big loss for you much more than for the rest of us!
Sincere condolences to the Flanagan family. May you find peace and comfort knowing he is no longer suffering and is with God. Praying for strength for all of you.
Pat was so special to our UD Community. He was always smiling, Flanagans (and Tim's) were our/UD's version of Cheers. We shared many good times with Pat. May his legacy live on in our memories.
Pat was a fine man who cared deeply for his Family. He was a trusted Friend to hundreds and the epitome of a sincere gentleman of the highest integrity. Thoughts and prayers to the Family.
