I worked with Pat at Southbury Training School and was always impressed but just how kind and considerate he always was to the people he served. He was a gentle soul with a giving heart. The world would be a much better place with more people like him in it. I am very sorry for your loss.

I have known Pat for over 30 years. We used to work together on a regular basis, but not for years. Still, he would occasionally stop in to say hello when he had a chance, or to try to organize a fishing trip. He was dependable and trustworthy. Pat really was a truly good man, and he will be deeply missed by the many people who's lives he touched. I know that I miss him.

Bob and Family,

I am so sorry to learn of Patrick's passing. Being a classmate of Patrick's, back in high school I can picture Patrick with a big grin on his face and being a happy-go-lucky individual.

May God's Blessings be with your family during this difficult time and know that the love of friends are with you all.
