I met Pat 20 years ago in my back yard while trying to cut down and tree with a circular saw. The wonderful Cogan family lived behind me. Pat came over and said "hi I am Pat, you cannot cut down a tree with a circular electric saw!" He offered to finish the job and take the tree away if I promised to stop trying to do it myself. AND that was the most wonderful person I ever met. As we got to know each other over the years and realized we both went to St. George Parish, we became friends. He would give the shirt off his back for anyone. Heaven has welcomedt an angel. My family will keep all of you in our deepest prayers at this sad time.

I first met Pat in the early 70's when he and I began our careers at Hunter Douglas. Pat was your stereotypical Maritimer and the perfect sales person for the times as he was very social, generous and compassionate. He treated everyone the same regardless of their standing in life. I was blessed to have known him.
RIP my friend

Many memories of Junior High and High School years. Pat was an avid athlete and had an infectious sense of humour. So affable and outgoing and a wonderful friend to all. He will be sorely missed!

I met Pat in my first year of High School, and we remained friends. Even though we did not see each other in the later years, Steve and I always connected with him. I know a few angels in heaven that will be waiting for you at the gate!
