Patrick was a 1962 graduate of Quincy High School and received his bachelor’s degree from Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri.

Upon his return to the Quincy area, Patrick was employed at Harris Broadcast. He then completed the last 31 years of his career at Knapheide Manufacturing, retiring as a manager of warranty distribution and quality control. Patrick’s family is grateful to the Knapheide family for their support and commitment to Patrick in allowing him to complete his career from home.

Patrick enjoyed fly fishing for rainbow trout whether it was in high altitudes, fast water or ice. He and his family would travel where there were abundant fly fishing opportunities, especially Idaho, and that led to Patrick developing a great affinity for bears.
