    Patrick was a very kind soul who spoke very fondly of his family, who he loved dearly. He lived his life to the best of his ability and helped other people whenever possible. He will be missed by many. May you rest In peace Patrick.

    Dearest Cousins and families I was so shocked to hear of Patrick’s passing. Although I had not seen him since a teenager he was a sweet soul. I pray that God will give you peace and understanding in this most difficult time for all. Sending big hugs I will be in touch

    I’ve only known Patrick for a short amount of time, but it was a pleasure working with him in that time. Very positive, and had a go getter attitude. Patrick will be missed dearly. MY condolences to the friends and family.

    I am very sorry to hear about Patrick. I also knew him during school at NHS, and we were friends at one time. Much like another classmate we lost last year I wish I had reconnected with Patrick in our adult lives to see how he was doing. My deepest condolences go out to his family.

    Yeah, Patrick was one of our crew members we hung around with. Just hearing about this brings some sadness, but fun times we had together. Seeing his passing was on my birthday as I just turned 49 that day. And yes, we have been losing a lot of our generation in the last ten years. Just lost my baby brother on February 21st this year at 45 and it’s been very tough on the family as dad passed away in 2015, and an older brother in 2005. But moved away from Norwood years ago an lost touch with most of my old friends. And this is the beginning of those reunions we dread to deal with. But always, rest easy my old friend from Norwood till we meet again. I’ll always remember the fun times we had as teenagers running around the center of town… Peace out ✌️
