Pat proudly served his country in the United States Air Force from 1963-1965. He was a patriot and loved our country. Pat touched many people with his kindness, generosity, and maybe even shenanigans. He loved to joke and share stories. His almost constant smile and unique laugh will live on in the memories of family and friends. He was a hard worker. Pat lived life the cowboy way, off and on the road, whether he was driving cattle or the crews and entertainers from coast to coast and border to border. He was especially proud of his Southern heritage and he was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
