I remember meeting Pat when he dated my sister. When we had met, I was impressed that she found a man like Pat. As things became more serious between them, I even looked forward to his eventual addition to our family. Their relationship unfortunately ended. My respect for Pat remains. He was one hell of a good man. My sister is heartbroken at the news of his passing. Rest In Peace my brother.

It was with great sorrow when I learned of Pat’s passing. I did not know his family, but he was part of mine. Pat was a friend in childhood and into adulthood. Pat and our friend Darwin would take care of her, and she only knew Pat as Uncle. I will forever hold Pat in my heart and carry the gratitude for which my world was forever touched by the kind and loving man he was!

Kind and clever, shy yet stubborn, Pat was one of a kind.
Once as teenagers we went camping. Rode our bicycles from Edmonton, quick stop at Devon, on to Twin Lakes. Night fell, the rain started falling, if not for friends who drove by also heading our way, we never would have made it.
Another time as adults, Pat arranged a reunion of old classmates honoring our much loved 6th grade teacher, Richard Miller.
Memories of a best friend, sorely missed.

A friend from the School Board texted me that Pat had passed. I’m deeply saddened about this news. Pat was my boss back in the day and I looked up to his good natured gentle soul. I liked him so much that I even got enough nerve to ask him out and was turned down because he was seeing someone at the time. He was always a good mentor and it was an honour to had the pleasure of working with him. Wendy

You were a beautiful man with a great heart.. Your friends at EPSB would like to offer your family sincere condolences..


Patrick always sacrificed of himself to help others, and was the most self-less person I have ever met. He could forgive most people for their egregious behavior, while never becoming bitter or hateful. Even when he was aware that his kindness was being exploited, he would usually shrug it off because the other person was ‘in need’ and it was the ‘right thing to do’. Patrick was a “pay it forward” person, before pay it forward became a thing.

There are endless examples of his kindness, his stoic demeanor, his sense of humour……

Rest in peace, Patrick


Patrick had a heart of gold and smile Your kindness will always be remembered. Rest in peace.

For all the days my dad (Phil) and I would drive to your house, you’d always let me raid through your CD collection because you didn’t have TV.
And when I seen you again, 10 years later, I couldn’t believe how little things had change. You were always so quiet. I am sad that I never got a chance to say good bye. I will miss you, uncle Patrick.
