As the niece and goddaughter of Pat, I can say his death effected the family in a crucial way... When I was a baby and I just devolved allergies, I was quiet only with him only. He was there to play, draw, go places with me. He picked me up from school. I still have his contact number and knowing he won’t respond, I’ll still text him. I love you Uncle Pat! ❤️ Fly high 🕊

You always made me lol my friend. Going to miss our chats, your witt, your texts, having a bite to eat when we ran into each other at an airport, the hugs hello and good bye. Going to miss you Pat. I won’t forget you. Tailwinds and blue skies forever.

Patrick was such a sweet and kind man! My husband always spoke so highly of him from their days at PSA together. They remained friends throughout the years and shared a love of flying. You are missed by everyone who knew you! I pray for peace for the family! Missing you in CLT, Charles and Christina Lindsay
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Ellen and family... I am so very sorry for your loss of Patrick! Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John

To the Corcoran family - You raised such a pure, honorable and most of all, selfless man, who always put others before he put himself. Patrick always spoke wonderfully of his family, particularly his niece Sydney, whom he adored more than anything. I’m so sorry for your loss. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. Patrick - My heart is broken. I wish I could turn back the hands of time. From now on, every time I watch Woody Woodpecker, or smell Old Spice, or see someone eating pretzel rods or bologna with a side of Dr Pepper, I will always think of you. I miss and care for you more than you would ever know. You’ll always be my “Patty”.

Dear Ellen, Joanne, and Katie, I am so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Pat. Even though I was so young, I remember the joy when we learned we had a new baby boy Corcoran cousin. I am keeping you in my daily prayers. I pray that you find comfort knowing Pat is safely in your dad’s arms. And now you must be the strong women the Needham family is known for. Sending you all my love. With deepest sympathy, Kathy Needham
