Patrick was born and raised in Ontario cottage country. He pursued a business degree at the Lakehead University, Ontario. He found the computer industry in it’s early years to be his passion and quickly established himself as one of the top performers in the industry. He moved to Alberta in the late 1980’s and settled in St. Albert, a place he loved and called home. Patrick loved helping with his children’s many athletic activities. He coached, cheered and mentored for many years. It gave him great pride to watch them grow.
A Celebration of Patrick’s Life will be held at a later date to be announced.
