Then as he began starting his family he moved to Bakersfield, California started his career working for Getty Oil as a mechanic. As his family grew and through life changes, Patrick relocated his family back to northern Michigan becoming an accredited master mechanic working at a local GM dealership in Lincoln, Michigan. Patrick was an outdoorsman that included building his own fishing rods to support his love of bass fishing. A favorite hobby of Patrick’s was drafting homes and eventually drawing his dream home. Late in his life Patrick continued to use his knack for tinkering and fixing things, making them to be more useful to him and ultimately better. Patrick was a great son, father, grandfather, and friend. Patrick was the type of man that would go without for others in need.
