We met a lifetime ago at the Acadian Club and were friends through our days at LSU. Always with a smile on his face. Time and distance lead to a lot of years of separation, but I remember the good times. Condolences to his family.

Pat was the best man at my wedding in 1973. I'm sorry we did not keep in touch. I miss the many days we spent fishing on Lake Verret and Grand Isle. May you rest easy and always have a tight line.
