Pat will be lovingly remembered for his great sense of humor, especially his "Dad puns". He had countless hobbies but those most important to him included gardening, hiking, camping, remodeling cars, collecting Matchbox and slot cars and Lionel trains. He often tinkered with repairing trains for others and was a member of the Train Collectors Association for many years. Countless friendships have been established all across the country from this "little hobby"!

Pat spent his career working as a sheet metal specialist and mechanic for SEPTA for 32 years.
