    Our prayers and condolences go out to wife Mary, daughters Michele,Diane,Kim and the entire Patrick family with their heartbreaking loss of Joe -a truly good man and friend. We knew Joe for almost fifty years. He was a loving and caring person who unselfishly shared his gifts of time and talent with others. Joe had a ready smile and wonderful ability to relate to people he met. We enjoyed some fun times with Joe over the years. They will always remain special memories. We are deeply saddened at Joe’s passing and will so miss him. We are blessed to have known him and doubly blessed to have been Joe’s friends for these many years. Love and prayers to all.
