Pat was a 1961 graduate of Logansport High School and had been employed at Myers Spring in Logansport for many years and had many of great friends with whom he worked and enjoyed.  A special appreciation is noted for Craig Miller, Todd Miller and their family for making Pat a part of their family.

He enjoyed fishing, and the trips he took each year to Senneterre QC and other areas with his fishing buddies, Bob Barr and others.  These were the highlights he remembered. He also enjoyed playing golf, cards, pool and hunting. His friends called him “Bunky”, a nickname he got from his father.
