I had the pleasure of working with Pat for several years before he retired from law enforcement. He was a good and honorable man and it was such an honor to have been his friend. I know for a fact that if it had not been for Pat's heroic actions on the night of the Capitol fire that there would have been an additional death that night. Pat never received the recognition that he should have for risking his life for another that night. Pat was a true hero!
