I was so sorry to hear about Pat's passing. He was a kind man, always had a smile and could always provide an interesting fact for almost any occasion. My condolences to his family.

Pat was a true man. Consistent, adamant, generous, strong, and reliable. He and I would argue for hours, months, years! Chances are I will argue with him for the rest of my days. The subject could be history, science, theology, and especially politics. I could turn his bald head red and in a few minutes he'd laugh or chuckle with a gentle smile. I cherish the memories of both his smiling chuckle and his bald head turned red. I tried never to underestimate his expertise. The man was phenomenal. I will win one argument when a computer can supplant his abilities. Until then ..... Three things were constant in his life: His love of his family, his love of his country, and his love of God. The first two will know his loss. The third knows his love. Goodbye, Pat. You are still with me as friend and mentor; a lighthouse in a stormy sea.

I was saddened to learn that Pat had passed away. Seems just like yesterday that he came to the National Wetlands Research Center. What an amazing person - his knowledge of remote sensing and mapping will sorely be missed. Sally I hope you and your family will be lifted up by knowing what a good and great man he was.

I am very sorry to hear of Pat's passing. He was a tenor in the Barbershop Chorus and also sang with a quartet for special occasions. Due to Pat's unassuming docile nature I was surprised to learn that he was a interpreter at local Civil War sites and a strong advocate for the Confederacy. Pat was always quick to smile and was always pleasant company. He will be sorely missed. Pat is in a far better place in the company of angles and the Savior. May GOD bless and comfort his family during this difficult time. .
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Sally and Family, I am hoping that Pat's latter days were lucid and jovial in sharing loving dreams and memories. I first met Pat when he worked at Stennis and hosted photo interpretation classes in the early 90's. Pat's legacy will multiply with the number of disciples like me who learned to appreciate the value of map sets, old and new. Our conversations assured me of his faith in God and a dry wit that always brought a chuckle. Pat was popular among his peers for his keen insights and great personality. I pray that joy will replace sorrow and a peace that passes understanding will wipe the tears with an assurance that Pat is in a far better place in the company of angels and the Savior. May God bless and comfort you all! Tom Doyle, Lafayette, LA

I wanted to express my condolences to Pat's family. I worked with Pat for several years before he retired. (I worked for the USGS in Rolla, Mo.) Pat was a very nice guy who enjoyed being with the people he worked with. He always had the best interest for the USGS and was an advocate. My sympathies, Bob Lemen

Pat introduced me to Cajun food for which I will forever be grateful!! I made several trips down to Lafayette to work with Pat. It was always an enjoyable and learning experience. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

A truly genuine gentleman. Maybe not the greatest paintball player, but he enjoyed doing it with his boys. I know that Ketchup and Velvetta stock is slumping right now. To Sally and the family Cathy and I offer our deepest sympathy. He will be deeply missed, he was one of my best friends.
Heather Baldwin left a message on September 25, 2015:
You might say I was one of his students, officially and unofficially. He was so fun to talk to and very knowledgeable and passionate about old maps and battles. I always learned something new and fascinating when we spoke, and looked forward to his visits to the center. He was one of the nicest, happiest and most energetic people I have ever met, and I am so saddened to learn that such a bright ray of sunshine has left us forever.

Mr. Pat was a fine gentleman with a quick wit and always a kind word. I always enjoyed our conversations at work and looked forward to the times he'd come back to Lafayette to teach workshops. Lots of great memories, he will be missed. Prayers to the family!

It is with much sadness that I learned of Pat's passing. I came to know Pat when he was at the Map Information Center at Stennis in the 1980s and I was a GIS Analyst for the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Slidell. He was a very kind, soft-spoken person and who had a keen interest in the sciences and history, especially of the Civil War and American South. My sincere condolences to Pat's family during their time of sorrow.
