The following tribute was written by Pat's wife, Donna.
Pat passed very unexpectedly on February 12, 2014, at the age of 55, leaving his family feeling their hearts had been ripped from them.
He was a driver/trainer for a trucking company in Illinois and was in Janesville, Wisconsin, when he took ill. A trainee was driving with him and for that I am very thankful.
Pat was a humorous, kind, loving and giving person. He never told his work no and was always helping other drivers. He also helped his family whenever he could.
He had two grown sons and three granddaughters. He now has a grandson named after him.
Knowing that my husband was able to help someone through the organ donor program gives me peace and comfort.
Forever in my heart!
