As a fellow Woodward member, I had the pleasure of interacting with Pat on and off for several years. There was never a time he wasn't great to work with and he always had a smile or something positive to say in passing. He will be missed. My condolences to your family.

To your entire family – we are so very sorry for your loss. Pat was a great man and a great friend, one you could always count on. Every morning Pat would go by my office and as he passed by say “Good morning Cindy Jo!” This always made me smile, mostly because my middle name is not Jo and when I told him he said it should be, and from that day on (17 years) I have been Cindy Jo. It was easy to get him to smile back, all you had to do was ask him about his family. He was so proud of all of you. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My heartfelt condolences for the Moss family. I met Pat while being the Postmaster in Poplar Grove. When he came in we aways had a conversation which could cover anything. Hard working and honest perfectly describes him.. He once gave me a box of Cubans to enjoy. In his memory I will have one for him.
