Patrick was such a great guy. I remember him fondly from my very first DragonCon days when I had no idea what I was doing and he cheerfully answered all my 'newbie' questions and made me feel right at home next to the famous artists.
I will miss pat very much and my prayers are with his family.
This is very sad news. Patrick was a wonderul person. I'm happy to have had the pleasure of working with him over the years.
My thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this time.
How terribly sad ......... my prayers are with his family! I did not know him but it looks like he left this world young (both body and soul) ........
Only talked to him a couple of times at DC, and he had been a nice guy. He had done a good job there, and he'll be missed.
Patrick was a gentle soul, and he will be missed greatly.
This is a great loss to Fandom. I remember him fondly. He did a tremendous job with the D*C artshow and was ready with a kind word and encouragement to new artists.
Sorry to hear about his passing, he's on to better worlds of creation. Sympathy to his family. Linda
Condolences to the whole family... Too bad to hear of this
I have to say...this was the last thing I was expecting to see when logging on today. It makes me very sad...

As a particpant in the DragonCon Art Show for several years, I was always impressed with Patrick as a person, and the effort he put into making the D*C Art Show the absolute best. It's a sad loss.
Sorry to hear such sad news, my sincere sympathy to his family and friends!
I did not knew him personaly, but it's always painful to loose a friend
Condolences to the family and friends..
I never knew him personally, but its a sad loss.
My thoughts and prayers will be with Patrick's family and friends.
Again I am very saddened to hear of the passing of another who sounds like they were an amazing person. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends to get through such a sad time. I wish them the best! May his memory live on.
I want to tell all of you how much it means to Patrick's family that so many people thought so much of him and took the time to express their condolences. While I can't speak for Felicia or Derrick, I can speak for myself by expressing a deep gratitude. patrick and I were brothers by the same Father. We did not grow up together, but I enjoyed the times he and I were able to talk "tech". He dedicated so much of himself towards his doctorate and was finally able to achieve his goal by going to JPL. I have always been proud of his accomplishments. We shared a love for the space sciences. He pursued it as a career. I chose just to watch and enjoy. His efforts towards making your events what they were have remained unknown to me until today. I must admit that I am a little surprised, but not totally. It seems like something he would enjoy.
Again, let me thank all of you for the expressions you have made. At this time arrangements for a memorial service have not been finalized. Those of you who know Felicia I'm certain will be advised.
I did not know him but felt compelled to give my condolences to the family for a man that left some fine memories to his peers, friends and family. God Bless him!
