Patrick was born in Hastings, NE on July 20, 1980. He was a lifetime member of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Dannebrog, where he was baptized and confirmed. He enjoyed growing up on the farm, going to sales with his Dad, and had a strong interest in International & John Deere tractors. All the animals on the farm were great but the dogs, Foxy & Cindy as well as the cats were very special to Patrick. Patrick graduated from Centura High School in 1998, later moving to Grand Island where he stayed with Janet & Marion “Doug” Douglas while he worked at Mid Nebraska Individual Services in Grand Island. He later moved to a house with several other roommates working at Goodwill Services of Grand Island. Since 2014, he’s been with Integrated Life Choices where he made many friends who became more like family. He did some odd jobs for Ray O’Connor of Grand Island and really enjoyed spending time with Ray and his sons.
