Pat worked for The Town of Paradise for 34 years where he worked as a heavy equipment operator where he was respected by so many of his coworkers. He often went above and beyond the call of duty to help people in times of need, He always had a friendly wave to all that greeted him.

Pat had many hobbies, but he loved trouting with his best buddies, tinkering in the garage on a project, cutting wood or going camping with Edie.
