A Celebration of Life was held in Pat’s honor at his brother’s home in Ennis, Tx. on Tuesday evening, January 7, 2014. They say a man’s worth is best measured by the impact he has on those around him. His character. It was truly evident during this time that he was certainly worth more than his weight in gold. The family would like to thank all those who have offered their condolences and shared their memories during this time. Pat had a genuine love for life and a heart as big as his personality. To know him was to love him. He will be missed by all who came in contact with him. Memorial services are pending in Albany, Ga.
