Pat was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. I knew Pat during our college days at Newark College of Engineering in the 1960s, and had the pleasure of working with him at the Port Authority since then. Pat, I'll miss you.

Pat was an old family friend, a down-to-earth guy who cherished his Irish American heritage, enjoyed his work and loved his family. His dad and mine grew up together as best friends and so our connection predates each of our births. Both dads died one year apart in the 1980s. We are forever connected by family. I'm sure Pat could have gotten out of the North Tower before it collapsed, but it was in his heart to sacrifice and ensure the safety of others before his own. Pat, you are missed by so many.
Tom Hanley, family friend
