I remember Pat limping around on cructhes at UC during his redshirt year during the winter time. Trying to hitch a ride to the Cicny Gardens to watch the croos-town shoot out and who can forget the battles with Louisville our arch rival. RIP PAT

A part of my heart and is gone and emotions have been flowing since the news of Pats'sudden passing. Thank God he passed peacefully in his sleep even though he was not ill. Although we lost touch several years ago, the Robertson family and I are in shock and deeply saddened. I suppose death hits you harder when it's unexpected.
Pat and I divorced in Dec. of '87 after 10 years - his wife for 5. Amazing times in our young 20's, combined with unfortunate separation and turmoil, but always with a deep friendship and love for each other. I will cherish the best days, Pat. In the past 25 years, all was forgiven, the Lord healed our hearts, and my family and I still cared and prayed for his happiness. Therefore, I pay tribute to you, Patrick Michael Cummings and your unbelievable life.
P.C. was his own private, complex and unique person, as those of you know that knew him well. Much more than just an awesome basketball player - a real man's man that had good friends, many aquaintances and fans. As someone said recently - a "free spirit". Over 30 years of memories rush in for me, as if still in the moment from our fun UC days in Cincy, to Millwakee, Dallas, NYC and Ohio. Many tears shed this week from all over the country, for the guy that always had a good time, a dominent personality that made you smile and laugh, and was good to his loving family and friends.

Fortunately, I was able to finally move on - 19 years ago I remarried and God gave me a wonderful husband and blessed us with 2 boys. I am so thankful for my life today but still reflective of the days of a previous chapter in my past. Let us all be reminded not to take the life we are given for granted, that life is but a blink of an eye, and we never know when we and others will pass on.
Prayers of comfort and healing go out to his dear mother, Delores, and brother, Mike. May you feel God's loving preseance now and always drawing closer to Him. Only a private burial is planned per his mom.

Rest in peace my beloved Pat...
From the only woman you ever married, you will forever be remembered.

I'm really shocked at the news of Pat
I used to chat with him in Oakland when his NBA teams came to the Coloseum. Had some good times with him at UC (THE Catlett Years)
