Pat was born on September 5, 1963, in Flin Flon, MB. After high school and a few years of working for HBMS mine, Pat moved to Winnipeg. He enjoyed a long and successful career in sales with the majority of his years spent at Russell Foods.
He enjoyed sports and spent his time organizing and playing badminton, pickle ball, ping pong and tennis. Pat was a fun uncle with a great sense of humour who loved to pull pranks on his nephews and niece. He was an amazing neighbour, a kind soul, always willing to help people out and volunteer where he could.
Pat loved animals, especially his furry rescues Rudy and Lily.
