  • To Pat’s family,
    I worked with Pat at HOF these past eight years and will miss him for his dry wit, exchanging of recipes, and Christmas dessert parties. I looked forward each Christmas season to tasting the variety of cookies Pat served as well as enjoying the beautifully decorated house. He will be missed!

  • To Pat’s family and friends, we send our deepest condolences.
    Pat, or as we liked to call him, “Pâté!!”, was a big part of our lives. He met my in-laws when moving to Timber Ridge Holbrook were they became neighbors. Pat treated my husband like a son. While in grad school in Georgia, he would send cookies and letter to him regularly. I remember reading these letters to my husband as he tinted cars. He always caught him up on the local events. When we came over to Long Island and I became part of the family, Pat welcomed me as his own. Every Christmas he would plan special dinners for different groups. We were lucky to be one of those groups. He was always to the point, caring, and very considerate. He became friends with my mom as well. He always had a present for us and our kids every Christmas. He would be done shopping and wrapped by the end of August. His Christmas tree was quite the sight. The whole house would be decorated. Even the bathroom. I never tried keeping up. Haha. He watched our kids be born and grow up. We feel blessed that we got to see him one last time this past Christmas. Pat touched many lives. He will be greatly missed by us. We loved him and he will always hold a special place in our heart.
    Love you Uncle Pat!!

  • My deepest sympathies to Patrick’s extended family. I was with Patrick many a Wednesday and Friday while volunteering in Odessa and he brought much humor to our mornings. I always appreciated his love for all things Christmas. Patrick built strong relationships in our local community and we are better for it. May he rest in peace.

  • Happy Birthday in Heaven Uncle Pat! You can have all the cake you want!
