My condolences to all who love Pat. He always gave so freely of his time in support of Portage Parks-- I especially appreciated his wise advice and professional insights in our time of transition, they were invaluable coming from a man of such high character and accomplishment. We'll miss him and his kindness.

Dear Mike, Mary Jo, Molly, Ann, and Kate:

I was saddened to learn of Pat's death. Thoughts of him have always made me smile and remember some great times with the McCafferty clan. He was a kind and gentle man and the world needs more like him, now more than ever. I am sorry that I will be unable to offer my condolences in person, but will be out of town this weekend. Please know that you all are in my heart and on my mind.

Our behind the scenes with Pat  The Krebs's & The Hunter's

Pat went out of his way to make our family feel special, in December of 2011 he set up a special behind the scenes tour of the Columbus Zoo for our family, the grandkids loved it and have never forgotten it. He loved kids, and yes he did make the world a better place for all of us. We all will miss him.
