I met Pat at Western Geophysical when I processed him to go to work overseas. I knew from the start that Pat “had what it takes” to be a success. We had such fun in those days. I send my sincere condolences to Pats family. Rest In Peace my friend.

I miss you a whole lot dad, I wished that you could've lived long enough to see me go to prom, to see me graduate high school and college, to see me get married and become a grandfather to my kids. You were a fantastic father and everything is going to become so much harder without you here. I honestly think it feels surreal that you aren't here and my mind keeps thinking that you're at some business trip and you'll be home tomorrow. I really miss you. Thank you for everything.
