Your dad broke this rookie in at the old Potrero Station in 1965. He exuded great confidence, experience and was a nice man about bringing along an ignorant kid. Talked to him many nights while picking up radios from Communications. He was one of those guys that people never forget and remember with respect.
By the way, Colleen, this Dan Sheehan from GGP Stable.
Colleen, So often we spoke of me meeting your Dad, but time just didn't allow it to happen. Clearly he was loved and respected by many and brought so much joy to this world. What a blessing and weren't you and your siblings so fortunate to have him as your Dad! I know how much you will miss him and how much you love him. My prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time. Pat is no longer suffering and he is now with his precious wife, smiling down on his kids. One day you will be joined together again. In the meantime, I'm blessed because I get to share in your sense of humor and passion for life. Love you my friend.
We are very sorry for your loss. Your Dad will be fondly remembered as a gentleman, kind & fun with a great smile and a boss who was always helpful & there for many of us at SSB. Colleen,you were so young when you came to CWB, what 35 years ago?
Susan, I am so sorry to learn of your loss. My love to you, and with deepest sympathy I write this.
Anytime I think of Pat I think of all the parties he and Dolly hosted, and the way they did it with completely open hearts, all kiddin' aside.
You were the monument that would never go away that finally went away.
God be with you, Lt. Simmons. away.. thatfinally .
Sue (and family):
I was sorry to hear about your Dad passing away. He was a good man. I had one great week of fun at the River with your family and I will always remember it.

I was drawn to the Simmon's home at an early age .A place full of smiles, laughter, jokes & stories as only Pat could tell.He was the father I wanted.I sat through my share of his "For Christ sakes"talks.He passed his smile on to all his children.That Simmons smile & set of values that say he's always with you
Dear Judi, Theresa, and the Simmons Family,
Deepest sympathy to all of you at this time. I remember your Dad from our school days, and when he was off-duty he would be around. I think they gave him the rowdiest guys in our class on field trips! I will always remember him as "Judi's and Theresa's Dad, the police officer." You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Pat, You were a wonderful fixture on the block!Alot of great memories. Thanks for everything.
Heaven is warmer and friendlier because of you, Pat, God love ya.. I'll sure miss you.
Dear Simmons Family, I worked the Potrero Station with your dad. He was a great guy and a good cop. I was proud to work in the same deoartment. Ken Foss, SFPD Retired
Dear Sue and Family,
Your Dad will be greatly missed.
May He rest in peace.
I will miss you, Dad. You always had a smile on your face, a kind word to say, and a joke to make me smile. I love you now and always. Say hello to Dolly and your son, the love of my life. We are all richer for having been part of your phenomenal family. Love to my brother and sisters. I love you all and will keep you in my prayers.
Pat will always live in our hearts and prayers and those of us left, especially his loving family, will miss this great man tremendously.
Simply put you were the Best. You were our friend, cheerleader, supporter, the best listener and teacher. Your love of animals was second to none. I am glad you are at peace, we will miss you for eternity.
Thank you pat for being the gentleman and officer that I tried to follow and be like you.
May you rest in peace. God Bless..
Pat was my Sergeant in Communications. He was one of the best bosses I ever had, always treating the brand new civilian dispatchers with respect, mixed with a lot of humor. Rest in Peace Pat and my deepest condolences to your family.
I worked for Pat at Taraval Station, later while assigned to the Honda Park & Beach Unit I would often see Pat walking his dog in a meadow close to the Polo Fields. We would always chat about the good old days, who was doing what, and after he retired, I'd catch him up on the latest department gossip. He was a very good man, and good boss. I share in your loss.
To the Simmons family I am sorry for your loss.Pat was a good man.Susie its been awhile, hope you are doing well.If you want lets email. email@example.com
with sincere sympathy to all of Pas family from jacek and michele kras
Colleen and family. I am so sorry that you lost your dad. I so enjoyed your pics on FB this summer with him. I could see how proud you were of him. He must have been a great guy and I would have loved to have met him. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. He is in a better place now. RIP.
love you the best dad! god bless you and keep the party rolling in heaven!all our love, sue and marty
Even though I only spent a brief time with him, he was sure a colorful character. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He will eternally be watching over you.
How lucky I was to spend 42 years with this Legandary Man. Being his very first Grandchild, who was lucky enough to be born the day after him, was a true Honor. My Grandfather was everything right and just in this world. I could listen to his stories forever. He loved San Francisco and his 28 years with SFPD. A piece of San Francisco History has been lost with his passing. We lost a good one. God Luv Ya, Grandpa. I'll miss u.
The world has lost a great guy. With sincere sympathy to all of Pats family.

A true gentleman. Pat & Dolly used to come to my parents home and play cards, at that time I was a teenager. Years later I worked for SFPD and Pat was my sergeant in the Record Room. My family & I have you in our thoughts & prayers.
Dear Judi and family,
Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
Kathy, Jack, Mike and Alana
