Patrick was a member of Holy Trinity Parish in Ligonier. He volunteered his time with the church Community Service program and annual fish fries. He also served on the Ligonier Borough Council.
He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather with a great sense of humor. He enjoyed working with his hands, traveling, RVing, flipping houses with his son, and most especially spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. There was nothing more important to him than his family. He was once asked what his hobbies were, and he responded, "my family".
