    Dearest family,
    We can hardly express how sad we are to hear of Pat’s passing. And though we only met you all a year ago at the reunion, you were all so warm and kind, we feel like we’ve known you forever! Please know that our hearts are with you and we send much love to you all. The thing that I will remember the most of Pat was that beautiful smile and the twinkle in his eyes, I know he will be missed dearly! God bless you and help you through this hard time, your cousins, Sandi Bain Houle, Robert Bain and Aunt Lynne…

    Pat is such a wonderful guy. Every time I’ve seen him at the airport he’s had a smile on his face and greeted me with a warm hello and handshake. The last couple of years at the huge fly-in in Oshkosh, we’ve run into Pat. It is always nice to see someone you know when you are hundreds of miles from home, and even though we don’t see each other often, he has always treated me like a good friend.
    Going to miss you friend,

  13. Loree (Hutchins) Kennedy June 25, 2010 at 8:48 am

    To the family of Pat King. I went to school with Pat and was so sorry to hear the news. Although it hurts, honor him with your tears he deserves and take comfort in believing the memories that bring tears now will someday be a source of smiles and strength. I have found with my personal loss that remembering the good times and the funny things truly help.
    With sincere sympathy, Mary Jane

    I am very saddened to learn of Pat’s passing. I first met him when he was my mail carrier while I was in college. The past 12 years, I had the pleasure of being his dental hygienist. I looked forward to seeing him twice a year and catching up on his travels, antics, and of course his grand kids. I hope the many memories of Pat carry you through this difficult time.
    Love and Peace,
