    So very tough to hear. Although I'd not met him, I did enjoy his sarcastic humor.

    Donation sent to help ease the financial burden on a grieving family.

    If you're planning on attending Wednesday's Gathering at Pirates Cove in Stuart, we'll be passing the hat for donations to Pat's family.
    Federales, bring my baby back to me!

    Heard about this when I got back in from Swordfishing last night. Tragedy. I saw Pat about a month ago when I called him at 11pm out West of Jupiter to come pull my buddy's truck out of the mud after we were gator hunting. No questions asked he was there to help. He was a little disappointed it was one Tundra pulling another Tundra instead of a Ford but we got a good laugh out of that. Rest in peace brother and catch some big ones up there. See you soon.

    Wow very sad. The pictures make me realize how young he was and just how short life really is...

    Life is too darn short, you better get out that and enjoy it any chance you get!!

    Only got the pleasure of fishing with him once, and hunting with him twice. His strong love for the outdoors extended to family and friends. Great guy and a very sad loss. Thank you for some great memories, please rest easy. Prayers to family and other friends.

    I met GT Pat years ago on this forum. Many a FS non meeting and Bashes ago. He was a true icon here and will be so missed for his humor and awesome posts. Sadness fills my heart of his passing. My prayers go out to the family at this most difficult time. Never forgotten and a toast will always be raised in his memory. RIP......
