Not sure what to say?

I was a 1963 QP graduate and fellow ham radio operator who enjoyed sharing the hobby with Brother Patrick. He went out of his way to make the hobby enjoyable by starting the amateur radio club and providing a room with wonderful ham gear and a variety of antennas on the roof the high school. I made it a point to call him after my graduation from college to thank him for all his support in my high school years. 73's K2JT

I graduated Queen of Peace High School in 63 and Brother Patrick was our principle. He was tough but fair and he had a sense of humor that was dry but clever. He was a strong leader in times of change. Peace to you Brother Patrick - you led a great life.

Rest in piece my friend & 73 - Mike, N4FS

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
