It was love at first sight and a forever bond. We laughed a lot!!! You are thought of often and truly missed "Mr. McCoy". Tell your dad, Mike and Murphy hello for me, until we meet again.
PJ, Megan and Sean you were his life! He loved you guys so much and you made him so proud!

We were so sorry to hear of your passing. Our friendship goes all the way back to the 7th grade at Nathan Hale.

Many fond memories in and out of school. We were happy when you would call us from Our House on a Saturday morning and tell Kenny to get a football game together down the gully. Then they would laugh.

So glad we got to visit at Our House.

I was so sorry to hear of Pat's passing. I used to call him to bring him up to date about our high school group and the wrestling team from many years ago. It was great talking to him. I am sad I never got a chance to visit him over the years he was at Our House. Rest in Peace Dear Friend. We will meet again another day.

My deepest sympathy to Pat’s family. Pat and I met in junior high school, continued our friendship at John Adams where we became the epitome of a high school couple, the Jock and the Cheerleader. Pat and I lost touch in our college years, but there was an occasional letter or phone call, and I was fortunate to get the opportunity to see Pat at “Our House” on two of my trips to Cleveland in the past few years. Pat’s friends, and I, will remember him with much affection, and we will mourn him.

Megs & Sean, I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish there were magical words to help you to feel better but I know that's not possible. May your happy memories with him shine through your grief. You're all in my prayers.

To My dear friend...We truly began our record industry careers together at the same time at ABC Music. Pat in Record Promotion and me in Distribution & Production. During those years our friend ship grew thru the love of tennis..We played every week, and later came together when The Mc coys hired me as their General Manager of the MAC Report. Over the years I never forgot our friendship. To your family, I trust you can find peace in knowing he's in a better place. God Bless to all..Your friend.

When I was doing promotion for WB (1977-1992) in Pittsburgh, Pat was my mentor. At one point, I asked Burbank if they would create a *new* job as Pat's assistant. When I moved to WB/Nashville, then obviously, I saw him a lot.
Just as I was leaving WB, Pat asked me to find a local beer neon sign to add to his collection. I found it and then flew to L.A. with the thing in my lap to be careful, then hand delivered to him. I stayed for dinner, too!
I miss him so much, and my sincere sympathies to you all.
