During his career, he had postings in Whitehorse, Ottawa, Washington, and Clinton, where he served as Commanding Officer. Following his retirement from the Canadian Armed Forces, he became Assistant Dean of Engineering at Carleton University and later was editor of The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal.
An accomplished pilot, engineer, and writer, he will be fondly remembered by his family as a bagpiper, organist, painter, avid reader and tinkerer. His generosity and sharp sense of humour will be greatly missed and never forgotten by those who knew him.
We would like to express our gratitude to the healthcare team of the ICU at the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. As Pat supported numerous charities, memorial contributions to your favourite charity would be appreciated. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
