I worked with Pat for years at the Prew Company. When I came down to Detroit to fill in after I left Prew, he was kind enough to fly me back north to Rogers City where I now live.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of a wonderful man. He definitely made my childhood more fun. Always stopping to pick me and take me for a ride in the Dune Buggy! I loved hearing about his olympic experiences! May your memories comfort all of you at this sad time. Patti
