Played lob ball with Pat many years ago here in Windsor, On. . Pat was a true gentleman Sorry to hear of his passing Condolences to his family
Hi Betty, I want to extend my deepest condolence to you on losing your dear brother. I always remember what a smart dresser he was and sure a nice guy all round. I extend this also to his wife and family whom I have never met but feel so sad for them as well.
My condolences to you, Jeannette. I will always remember Pat with a ready smile and a joke to make you laugh. He could light up a room with his great personality.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jeanette, John and Family during this difficult time.

Jeannette my condolences on the passing of Pat. I certainly remember both of you from the good old days at the Windsor Board of Education in the maintenance department. I was out in Newfoundland last summer for a month. I remember that you always said you would return to NFld. once you retired. Take care Jeannette.
Our hearts are home with our family now as we say goodbye.
I’ll never forget Uncle Pat’s smile and the jokes he made. He would then give you that look, almost to see if you understood what it meant, especially when I was little. I will also think of him each time I make Chili as he showed me his way of doing it once at the house.
Sending all our love and wish we could be home with you all.
