Pat was a great supporter of 4-H and FFA youth. He always worked hard to make sure the bidders at the Waushara County Junior Livestock Auction fully supported our youth's livestock projects. He always had a smile and kind word to say to those he came in contact with. He touched the lives of many and his many contributions throughout Wisconsin will be remembered.

I got to believe that the Good Lord, and Sister Michaela, are enjoying a korbel manhattan with Pat as he entertains them with his witty sense of humor. May he rest in peace after a life well lived.
My condolences to Marilyn and the entire family. Pat was a wonderful human being.
