Preceded in death by grandparents: Douglas & Elfa Sanders, William & Beatrice Schwamm. Patrick loved spending quality time with family and friends. He especially enjoyed family vacations. He loved the outdoors. He loved music. He chose sobriety in 1988 and has helped countless others in recovery. He built many lasting relationships in the car business throughout his career. He loved hockey and his favorite team, the Red Wings. We call him our Wingman. Not just because of the Red Wings, but because he was always looking out for others and lifting others up. He was a larger-than-life character that brought humor into every situation. His trust in God in life and death was inspiring to all who were blessed to know him. Thank you to NC Little Hospice.
