A true renaissance man, Patrick acquired skills and knowledge in many different areas. He loved the outdoors, especially fishing and hiking.

He was a poet, songwriter, self-taught musician, painter, champion marksman, martial arts black belt, Reiki master, American history buff, collector of 19th century antiques, a humanitarian, and an astute businessman - all accomplished with deep spirituality and great wit. In his struggle with cancer, Patrick inspired all who knew him. He leaves behind his wife, Victoria who is volunteering to help the Abigail Alliance succeed in its mission of bringing drugs to needy patients faster, and his children, Brian and Leanne.
