That sorrow never quite left Pat and he missed her dearly.
Pat lived in Littleton, Colorado, with son Ricky and his mother-in-law, Carol Fish, Cheryl’s mother. Pat and Cheryl had promised one another to help take care of each other’s moms, and both did keep to this promise. Pat was the original class clown and was a master at making people laugh and was very quick with a clever and sometimes naughty quip. He loved to cook was a huge Bronco fan and hosted his many friends at game watching parties. He had many, many dear friends, whom he considered family and who will miss him greatly. He loved the outdoors and took after his big brother Joe by collecting cars. At the time of his death, he still has his first car, a 1968 Mustang.
