Dad, you left behind many who love you. The struggle is over and now; may you enjoy your peace.
At Patricks request, no formal service will take place.
My condolences to all the Burke Family, especially Steve Burke, one of my oldest friends. Pat Burke was a youth leader in the Civil Air Patrol squadron for years and was a guiding influence to me and many other young cadets. I have very fond memories of Pat.
We share your grief at Pat’s passing, but have faith that he is in good hands. God bless all of you in your hours of grief. He and Glenna were fine people and you have their memory to console you in this time. –Daryl and Pat Jonson.
I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Pat’s passing. But I know that Aunt Glenna, mom, and many others were there to great him. May this knowledge comfort you all during this time of lose.
My love to all the families.
