    Rita and family, I am so sorry to hear that Pat passed away. You don’t have to have me tell you what a great guy he was. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family

    Sincerest condolences on Pat’s passing. I worked with Pat on projects for the ODPBC and Pat was great to work with. Like Pat, I am a Packers fan. and we always shared our thoughts about the current state of the team. I am praying for Pat and the family at this trying time.

    Pat was a good friend and classmate at Onalaska HS. He was a popular guy and always had a smile on his face. We enjoyed fishing together and playing sports. I also knew Mike and we enjoyed competing at golf. My sincere sympathy goes out to Rita, Mike and the entire family. We cherish the memories we shared with Pat.

    So sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. If I had to describe Pat in one word it would be “genuine”
