    We are so saddened by the passing of Pat. Such sweet memories of him and his family. He was truly a gentle man with a big heart…we enjoyed many baseball outings with the family from their son Michael’s middle school years on to travel ball especially with Gatorball. Our thoughts, prayers and love to all the family. Henry and Annie Sims

    My thoughts and prayers are with Lori, Michael, Rachel and the rest of the family. Pat was a great friend. He was genuine and lived his life on his terms. He got the most of every moment. One of the best experiences of my life was our camping trip to Alaska with Michael and Kyle. Pat was always a big supporter of my kids and family. I could never thank him enough for what he has done for my son. Pat, it was my honor to have you as a true friend. You will be missed.
