Growing up, the Blanos' were my second family. I was at their home as much as my own! The years separated us but I will never forget Pat and Tootsie and you, Kathy. I love you all and my love, thoughts and condolences are with you.
Sending love and prayers for all of the family on the loss of Pat.

So blessed to have met Patrick, as i always loved to call him my 'other Patrick'. Loved seeing Tootsie and Patrick. Always a hug and a true smile. Tootsie, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Tootsie and Kathy, The smile I see on Pat's obituary photo is the same smile he always wore. He was a most pleasant, helpful, agreeable person who loved his family very much. May his memory be eternal.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your time of grief. Pat & Tootsie will always be some of my favorite people. I moved acroos the street from them back in the early 70's and my folks got to know Pat as did I.
One of a kind man and thank you for your service to our country. May God rest your soul now...say "hello" to my folks....you will be missed...
We lived across the street from The Blanos's in Sherwood in the late 60's to early 70's. I have fond memories of Pat, Tootsie & Cathy that I will always remember. I am so glad that I got to see Pat at the Greek Festival. My love and sympathy to Tootsie, Cathy & Family.
My sympathy to Tootsie and all who knew and loved him. We played golf together & he was the best golfer I ever knew a dear and good friend. May God Bless his soul. Henry Dugger
A rock of our community has been shaken. Pat never talked to anyone without that smile and sense of positive inspiration to us all. Thanks Pat for all you have given us.
A great man with a beautiful soul. Anchors Aweigh, my Koumbaro.
Tootsie, Katherine and family. What fond memories we have of Pat and the wonderful times we spent together. God bless all of you and never look back unless you can smile. Gary Skaar
May his memory be eternal for he is worthy of everlasting memory
Pat Blanos was a wonderful kind man who was very good to me.He loved his family especially his talented wife Mary and his great-grandson. I lost contact with him recently but my life was enriched by knowing him. We must never forget the sacrifice men like him made during WW II. They were truly " The greatest generation".
