So sorry to hear about Pat. I had the pleasure to have had dinner with him when we were visiting Siesta Key a few years ago. My condolences to your family.

Pat was my Phillies buddy here at Arcadia. We would sit in the evenings and watch the games, when I worked. We loved talking baseball, politics and about life in general. I will miss him, his smiles and the ribbing he could give. I am so very glad I got to know him! Rest in peace my friend.

On behalf of the Arcadia Family, we share in your loss and sadness. Pat was an amazing individual who embraced life even through his pain. I look at the lobby every night when the Phillies play and, in my mind, he is sitting there. Sending our condolences and prayers to the family. He will truly be missed. Karen Garland
