He was a brother, friend, and uncle to many. “Pat” as he was affectionally called, had a heart of gold; he loved to fish and watch wrestling and westerns on TV. He was employed with Chappy’s Deli in Prattville for 5 years; he had to leave the job he enjoyed due to health challenges. He battled cancer for the last 2 years. “Pat” was a huge Florida Gator football fan! He will be greatly missed.
Keahey Funeral Home of Florala-Lockhart is entrusted with arrangements.
