I knew Pat from Julia R Ewan Elementary School where we had a number of the same home room teachers and classes. Such a great guy who always had a kind word and great sense of humor. I can recall how proud he was of his Mother as she often visited the school being a home room Mother. So glad I got to know him during those wonderful years at Julia R Ewan.
Pat was a dear friend for most of my life and I was blessed to have him in my life for the past 7 months. He was a special man with his wit, humor, charm, kindness, thoughtfulness and empathy. Every day with him was special. He spoke daily about Max and Emma with such love and pride. He had such an impact on so many people and always made each person feel that he/she had a sincere and trusting friend. His life ended far too soon. Thank you for all the good times and wonderful memories Pat. You are always in my heart.
Pat was a wonderful person!! I worked with him at Euclid krogers he always was so nice to talk too!! He had great stories to tell and always so friendly to everyone. He will be very missed!! When I found out he passed I was in shock about his passing. Prayers for the family!! Andrea Queen
Pat was the most charming and affable man. We hit it off as friends over 15 years ago, and I so enjoyed our visits drinking coffee and going out to eat and watching a movie at the Kentucky Theater. I laugh out loud during the many times I recall one of his hilarious and outlandish stories. Last time I saw him was at the Kroger cheese shop on Euclid. We vowed to get together very soon. I sadly regret that didn’t come to be. I will sorely miss him.

Pat was friend of our son Cameron at both The Lexington School and Henry Clay High School. Later when Cameron took us shopping every Saturday at Kroger’s on Euclid, Pat became our special cheese man. We were pleased for him that his move to Frankfort’s Kroger’s was a pronation to store manager. We will miss that smile.

Pat was born just two days after our Cameron. They were friends at both The Lexington School and Henry Clay High School. We knew him back then and later as a wine man. We later enjoyed him as the special cheese expert every week when we shopped with Cameron at Euclid Kroger’s. We were pleased to learn of his promotion to manager of the Kroger store in Frankfort when we shopped with Cameron at Euclid Kroger’s on Euclid. We will miss that smile.
