In his 23 years of retirement, Pat enjoyed riding his Harley, snow skiing, water skiing, boating, golf, bowling, cars and being with friends and family.
Pat received a kidney transplant in 2015 through the Swap Program at Cleveland Clinic. Twelve people were involved (6 donors and 6 recipients) including Christine who donated on his behalf.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations made to the National Kidney Foundation 2800 Corporate Exchange Drive, Columbus, OH 43231.
