Pat was born in August of 1947 and spent most of his life helping others, from the early years on his uncle's farm to the later years on his horse farm. Pat spent 44 years working at Alcoa. In his spare time, Pat could be found bent over trimming & shoeing horses. He was a very passionate man who would give the shirt off his back to help someone. Pat will be missed so much by all his family and friends.
