A generous man, he welcomed many friends into his Pearl River home and his Pocono vacation home where he enjoyed captaining his pontoon boat around Lake Wallenpaupack. An outdoorsman and athlete, Pat enjoyed travels around the globe along with hunting, fishing, golf, tennis, and skiing. He supported his children and grandchildren in their countless activities.
