While living in California, he joined the Knights of Columbus. He is a charter member of Council 9487 in El Toro, CA. In 1990, Pat and family moved to Washington. It was there where he transferred to Father Justin Garvey Council 6686 in Bothell, Washington.

During his 10 years as a Membership and Program Consultant, he helped his region reach the Circle of Honor status each year.

In his free time, Pat has enjoyed playing softball while dabbling in golf, magic, writing and playing his many musical instruments. He readily admits that he would not be who & where he is today if it was not for the love and support of his family.
