    I worked with patrick at carbon express and after meeting him in person we have realised, that we also worked together at h.o.c. years ago. He was a good dude for sure, and a very hard worker. I enjoyed the times we talk and work together on various transformer sites. Sure going to miss him

      After careful consideration of the new regulations put in place to contain the COVID-19 virus. We have decided to postpone the memorial hog roast for PJ NOCK, scheduled for March 29th, until this whole thing blows over. Our intention is that everyone who wishes to attend will be able to without risking their own health, or the health of their loved ones. We will do our best to make sure everyone is informed when we decide a date and location. Thank you all for your sympathies. Please follow this post or check back regularly for any updates.

    The great memories are so many..and for that we are blessed.My favorite was seeing that my Aunt Sharon had found her forever in this wonderful man and his 3 adorable boys.The way they looked at one another and smiled . No matter the distance or length of time between my visits. This was the atmosphere every time. P.J will be missed every single day for he was one of the most pleasant, silly,good hearted,hard working men I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling an ‘uncle’ and I’m so thankful.

    Patrick came to work for Carbon Express in March of 2019. In that short amount of time he proved to be a hard worker and quickly made friends with a number of our drivers who he had the opportunity to work with at transformer sites. Always smiling and willing to jump in and help everyone get the job done. I happened to talk to Pat last Friday 02/28 and I’ll never forget his last comment to me about how he really loved working for Carbon and the people here and his only wish was that he come to work for us sooner. Great driver, great person, and he will be missed.
