Pat was always smiling and had brought joy to each person he was around. Lots of good memories and a personality like no other (except for Jerry). Thoughts and prayers to each of you during this time. Heaven gained another angel!!

Patti so sorry for the loss of your sweet daddy. Remember all the good times and camping trips. Your dad was so much fun and will greatly be missed. He always made me feel like I was a part of the family. Praying for God to comfort you and strengthen you and your family through this time. I know that he was a godly man and his heavenly reward will be great. Love to you and all your family. Your sister in Christ, Robin Reid

Pat was always a smile in my life. I remember VBS and icecream when we were at the old Wildwood church. Sometimes he would give us a piece of dry ice to play with. He was always a great example to all of us kids. Never saw him sad or mad. He was so good to my Mother and mowed her yard for many years. They loved each other dearly. He will be missed by many who have grown up with his laughter and quiet wisdom. Love you Betty and girls. Brenda Sneed Agan

Betty, Paula, Patti, and others in the family, I know I have shared some thoughts on Facebook. Just wanted to let you know again that I am praying for you for God's comfort, grace, and guidance. I won't be able to make the services, as I have a bad knee. I love you all.
