    There are to many memories to just pick one. I will forever thank you for the times that you gave to me. Until we meet again, you will forever be in my heart. I am going to sign this the name he forever called me, no matter how old I got.

    I did not know Patrick, unfortunately, but know his brother Timothy and am sure that Patrick will find his special place with God. Deepest sympathy to Tim and family of Patrick, find peace in Patrick’s passing by knowing he is being cared for and loved.

    My big brother, all the good times we had growing up. I will miss you. Say hi to mom and dad for me.

  7. Tim O'Connor sr. says:

    When I joined the Army, he got me some wool army sock’s. I did not understand why, he said you will. When I got to basic training they made us put all of our civilian clothes in a bag and locked them up. I was able to keep the extra sock’s because they were the same as the military issue sock’s. When we were going on long road marches we would have to change our sock’s halfway through, and everybody else was washing out socks by hand in the sink at the barracks at night. I had plenty of clean sock’s. He took care of me. He was special that way.I have countless other memories, and will think of them often. Rest in peace big brother, till we meet again.

  8. Sandy (Riter) Goodman says:

    Thoughts & Prayers are with all of the families that Pat touched. God is with him now, and he has found his peace. Love you cousin, sorry I didn’t get to see you during these past years. You will never be forgotten.

  9. Rob Bulone says:

    My prayers go out to all of us, for we have lost a good man – Dad, Brother, Soldier, Mentor….and Friend. I too have some good memories of the parties at Cort’s with dad(well before he became dad to me) and also some good times fishing out on dad’s boat with him and was fun. I also appreciate the visits and dinners, and the talks and advice that he gave as well. But I want to especially thank dad for giving me Cheryl. Cheryl means the world to me, and I love her dearly. So to you, Dad,…Thank you very much… for everything. And this is not goodbye, but see you and the rest of our families later. May all of our departed loved ones and friends rest in peace.
