Pat loved trains. Especially O Scale trains. But he loved his customers more and his real satisfaction was being able to meet our requests. His shop was always about us – never about him. Even when his health was in decline, he never let on. Pat gave the entire O Scale community such joy. Thanks, Pat.
Many non train people may not know this, but in recognition of the important contributions Pat made, his fellow hobbyists voted Pat into the O Scale Hall of Fame in 2017. He is irreplaceable.
An obituary for Pat will be published in O Scale Resource Magazine.
