There are so many things I remember about Pat.My first memory of Pat was when I became a member of the band.I thought it would be fun and so easy to learn to play the clarinet.Boy was I wrong.I never learned to play it well at all..I stayed close to last chair most of the time.There was this blond boy that caught my eye and I had a hard time keeping my eyes off of him..because he was so great on the DRUMS.I loved hearing the drums..I still like them.He was the best.Mike Frazier was great on the cornet.Another thing I noticed about Pat was he always wore pressed Levi jeans...not knowing his parents owned a always had this loud laugh.I can hear it now..and such a grin..secretely I think I wanted to date him,but I was shy..He always was so friendly.and a bit mischievous..I will miss him as a class mate and as a friend...Good bye,Pat..I still see your smile..

Once in a lifetime, if you are fortunate, you have the opportunity to know someone who, with the slightest remembrance, always causes a smile - someone who makes life a bit brighter.  For me, Pat was this someone.  Although we lost touch after high school, his effect on my early life has had a lasting effect.  We spent many hours together – whether in Band, fishing on Caddo where he managed to ski behind his small Skeeter boat, or simply listing to the latest Brother Dave Gardner record in his room.  In fact, I still have a small scar on my hand, the result of a misplaced ice pick we were using to crunch ice for a cooler of beverage on a Saturday fishing outing.  He was my Best Man at my wedding to Elizabeth almost 50 years ago.  I could not imagine my high school days without Pat.  Words cannot express my sense of loss.  He was, to me, a forever friend.

I am so sorry to hear of Pat's passing-we grew up together on Holland Street for the first five years of our lives about two houses away from each other, playing together every day with a bunch of wild kids. Pat's family  moved away when we were about five and we didn't see each other again until high school. Pat had some pictures of the bunch of us when we were four or five that he showed me at the last reunion and we had a big laugh at what a tough looking bunch of kids we were. What a great sense of humor he had. Loved Pat like a brother.
God rest his soul.

The thing I remember most about Pat, was his laughter. He and I kept in touch for many years after graduation and up until probably 10 years ago. We would call each other occasionally and joke about things. When he was working at the tractor dealership, I would call and ask him if they sold 48 volt batteries as a joke. Then Pat became very ill and we lost touch unfortunately. He was a great friend and I miss talking to him now that he is gone. Mike Frazier, Pat, and I had a little band we used to play in and I am sure they are both still blowing a trumpet and playing drums in heaven.
