On June 22nd, 1957, he married Viccie Yvonne Evans. They were married for over 61 wonderful years.
Pat loved Ohio State football, and despite a demanding career, he faithfully attended his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events. He was a fun grandpa, known as someone who could talk to anyone. With a lifelong interest in photography, he was fond of taking pictures of those he loved and of nature’s beauty.
He liked hunting and fishing in his younger years, and was a tinkerer, especially enjoying wood working and just making things with his hands. He also enjoyed boating, spending much of his life boating on reservoirs and Lake Erie. His summer and winter condos were located on Lake Erie and the Gulf of Mexico. Along with raising a fine family, one of his proudest achievements was building a log cabin from scratch.
