We thank Pat for his service in the U.S. Army from 1953-1956 as a radio operator stationed in Germany. He was an engineer for Michigan Bell (now AT&T) where he conducted fieldwork and computer programming.
Religion was important to Pat. He attended daily Mass, was an usher and sang in the choir. Patrick also loved music. In addition to singing in his church choir, he sang in various other civic choirs for over 40 plus years! Hitting the high notes in life, Pat was a selfless volunteer in his community and belonged to the Knights of Columbus.
