God has truly blessed Pat. His life enhanced ours. Pat used his gifts and talents to share selflessly with others expecting nothing in return. Pat lived life as an adventure with a positive outlook, accepting life as it is. He was persistent and determined during hardships. Pat made our world a better place. He knew how to live, love, and share his all. As he thought only of others, he shared his faith and his heart. With the love and support of family and friends, may God bless and comfort us all as Pat takes his greatest adventure.
Delone classmate and friend
