Patrick helped me build my train setup in my basement and generously gave me a lawn mower when I was in need. He was a kind, gentle, and passionate man, whom I am glad to call my friend. Godspeed Patrick, now you are free to travel anywhere you would like to see. You will be missed.

  4. My deepest condolences. I got to know Pat when I was writing the book of BlueWater. Many times Pat and I would talk about his dad’s restaurant in BlueWater called ” Mike’s Restaurant “.
