Patrick loved brewing beer and even grew his own hops. His culinary skills were exceptional; and he loved to barbecue and bake, especially bread. One of his greatest joys was having everyone over and enjoy his fruits of labor. Patrick enjoyed carpentry and you could often find him redesigning his home or helping others with theirs.

Above all, Patrick loved his family. He will always be known for his ability to listen, teach and give great words of wisdom.
