They enjoyed life to its fullest and were an unseperatable union, doing everything together. They spent their summers at the family home in Priest River, spending hours enjoying the outdoors, spending time with their family camping and fishing through the years. Tom in early years enjoyed bird hunting and Pat enjoyed bowling.

Together they were all about helping others in need both family and friends. Pat & Tom were always willing to go the extra mile for others. They indeed took the idea of “Paying It Forward” to new heights.
