He graduated from Perry High School in 1964.
Pat was united in marriage to Sandra Lou Smothers at the First Presbyterian Church in Perry June 1, 1968. They made their home in the Berkley and Perry area.
As a skilled craftsman, Pat worked as a brick mason for his entire career. During this time, he either volunteered his services or worked on several community projects that are still visible today. A few of his many projects are the Perry welcome sign located on the east side of town, the Pattee Park band shell improvements and the brick pavers outside of the Perry Public Library.
After a long career, he retired to the lake, where he enjoyed fishing, playing cribbage, Cardinals baseball and Green Bay Packers football.
In death he rejoins his beloved wife, Sandy; and his parents, Charles and Alice.
