Dad was well loved by his uncle, Vince and aunt, Eileen Hogan. He cherished the old house in Renous and all of the memories he made up there with us. We will make sure to continue the tradition and make many more memories up there in his honour.
Our dad enjoyed watching tv, especially Judge Judy and every nature channel you could imagine. He adored his dog, Bella and took her on an endless amount of walks. Dad loved spending time with all of the dogs in our family; Bella, Spud, Gus and Max. Dad made many memories with old and new friends. Dad spent so much time with us, working on things in the garage with Kevin, teaching us to cook, going on family trips, having family bbqs, dancing with mom and always holding Julies hand no matter where they were. He loved life and loved hard. He loved being surrounded by nature and spending any amount of time with his family outdoors.
Pat was a wonderful husband to Dawn and they worshipped each other to no end. He said the best day of his life was when he married our mother and became a father to us. He was such an amazing father and we will never forget all of the memories we created together. Pat was also a great father figure to Nick and enjoyed spending time with Kevin's friends, Cody, Riley and Sam. Everyone adoured Pat because he was such a loveable sweet man. He was a family man first and foremost and would help anyone in need, especially his family. Our family meant the world to him and we know he did not want to leave us. He said he was not scared of dying, he was just scared about leaving us. We will miss your big bear hugs daddy. We miss you so much, but we are at peace knowing you will no longer suffer. You put up such a great fight, but now you deserve rest and peace. You will always be our guardian angel in the sky and we promise to take good care of mom and to keep the promises we made to each other.
In honor of Patrick there will not be any visitation or funeral service held. A celebration of life (family bbq) will be at a later date as per his wishes.
