Very shocked and saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of Pat earlier this month. As a classmate, I recall spending many Saturday evening's in Plumley at Spirit Club functions having a few beers. Pat was also an active member of the National Eagle Scout Association Chapter with Col. George Shelley, USMCR, as our advisor. My heartfelt condolences to his family and may God grant Pat eternal rest. Norwich Forever!

Pat was a giving and sharing person, and gave us thoughtful conversation at Norwich. I can only imagine the people he touched in his life.

My sincere condolences to Pat's family and friends. Pat was a "fixture" at GE - always helpful in his calm, quiet, kind (and sometimes gruff - yet always lovable) way. I'll miss our brief chats in the lobby and hallways at the office. Rest in peace Pat!

Such a shock to hear of Pat's passing. He was such a fixture in our home for so many years. His life was too short. Our scouting memories are so vivid. So many celebrations and badges worked on.
