Patrick was born on December 15th, 1935 in Berlin, New Hampshire. He was the youngest of 8 children.

After high school Patrick attended Massachusetts Radio & Telegraph School. In 1956 he joined the United States Air Force and proudly served for four years. He was honorably discharged in 1960.

Patrick married Estelle St. George on October 8th, 1966 in Massachusetts, where Estelle grew up. They moved to Vermont, where Patrick worked at IBM until he retired after 28 years, and raised their two daughters.

Patrick enjoyed all outdoor activities, especially hiking, kayaking, camping and skiing. He hiked the complete Long Trail in Vermont, all of the mountains in New Hampshire, and many more across New England. He was a talented water-color artist and an avid ham radio operator.

In addition to his wife Estelle, Patrick is survived by his children, Kelley and husband Ken Robie, and Debbie Jenkins, both of Milton, VT. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Tyler Jenkins of Fairfield, VT, Nathan Jenkins of Milton, and Kaylee & Kiera Robie of Milton, two sisters, Nora Guay, NH, and Louise Slote, MS, many nieces, nephews and cousins throughout the United States, and his best friend George Fortuna in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Kelley and Debbie, You both have had a rough year. I am sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I have good memories of him when you were kids, and during my years working with him at IBM. I miss those visits with your mom when she was out for her walks. I will try to go see her when it is safer. Chuck and Aron send their condolences as well.
