As he got older, he became very protective over his family and the people he loved. He grew into a no non-sense type of man and always defended his values and the people he cared about most.
Patrick was hardworking. He enjoyed hobbies like fishing, cooking out, and listening to old-school music. He was proud of earning his Commercial Driver's License (CDL) in 2006 and took pride in driving trucks for Builder’s First Source. There were special people in his life that really wanted to see him win.
