Pat worked for Pearce Young Angel of Conway for many years in sales and management before pursuing jobs in wine sales and restaurant management. He loved being a salesman; his easy smile and love of a good joke made him a customer favorite. He was a people person. Pat also loved smooth jazz and classic rock and roll which lead to an astonishing knowledge of musical groups, members, albums, and career biographies. He loved to dance, and he and Nancy graced many dance floors along the Strand. He and Nancy loved to travel, and enjoyed trips to Italy, Alaska, most of the Caribbean, and many US states. Most importantly he was a good man. He loved his family and especially loved spending time drinking vanilla milk shakes with his 3 great grandsons. His faith in God was strong and unwavering and he endured his health issues bravely, knowing he would someday be whole again in Christ.
