Hey Big Sister...... It is with great sorrow to be writing this entry. Pat will be missed by everyone who knew him. And even those that may not have actually known him but were touched/helped in some way throughout his career as a Portland Fire Fighter. Even those spectators at some of the competions, whether it was a pool tournament or a handball tournament will still possess memories of his obvious skill level and fierce competiveness. He was always willing to share knowledge to those who would seek it. Pat took me under his wing at a very young age helped guide me through many of life's challenges. He was my mentor in many aspects of early life and the lessons have been carried on for decades. He went out of his way to help me in the transition from boy-hood to man-hood. He taught some life skills in almost every area of my life. Everything from mechanics, firearms, job choices, finances, social interactions, home improvement/maintenance, .... The list goes on forever... He will always be remembered in our hearts and minds. And when that happens, he will always be with us.
Love and Miss You, Little Brother
