  2. It’s a little hard to take this news. Pat and I meet in High School, he was the first real friend I made when we first moved to Canyon. I’m sorry we lost touch over the years, good thing his mom kept me up to date with what he was doing from time to time when I would see her at St. Ann’s. Thank you Berniece.

  3. So sad to read this. Pat was friends with my boys and used to hang out at our home in Canyon during their Jr High and High School years. I knew his family well through St Ann’s and they are all fine, hardworking people. Sympathy to his family. Prayers for family and friends. May he enjoy eternity with Our Lord and be greeted by loved ones who await him in heaven ❤
