Pat and Family:

Coach Behrends was a wondeful mentor, coach, and friend. He has had a lasting impact on my life since the days in Sycamore, IL. The many times we played golf together every day before the start of school made us very close.

I have thought about him often and referred to life's tips and suggestions during my career in sports and business.

He was a great man and the people that he has touched will miss him.

God Bless you family.

Coach Behrends' family,

I offer sincere condolences to all of you. Rock Valley College has lost one its most notable personalities. I admired the intensity with which he coached his teams and his friendship he carried after his players left. I will never forget the game between Malcolm X College and Rock Valley College in 1969. The outcome determined the winner which would advance to the state finals. Rock Valley won something like 89-87. I'll never forget that team-Larry Sidney, Dwayne Hoff, Jim Yeager, Steve Dennison, and 6th man Paul Perrone among others. I rank this game right up there w/Wisconsin v Kentucky games in the Final Four.
Coach, well played and well lived.
