Pat lived a full life. He and his brother, John owned and managed FJ Wadden for many years. He also enjoyed time with family and friends at Hogan’s Pond and St. Pete, Florida. He was happiest at the head of the dinner table, in lively conversation, as well as on the tennis court, as long as he was on the winning side.

Special thanks to the staff at Chancellor Park for their kindness and care.
“Oh, they say we have outlived our time Maggie
As dated as songs that we sung.
But to me you’re as fair as you were Maggie
When you and I were young.”
From his favourite song, When you and I were young, Maggie.
