My heartfelt condolences to Patrick's family and friends . I have known Patrick got the past 30 years. Ran into him down here in So.Calif. at an art show in Santa Monica, Ca. He has his booth from his store in Missoula. Because I am from St. Ignatius, Mont. The connection was instant. He has always supported the Fort Connah restoration society , in efforts to keep the Fort and surrounding area intact. When I was on the board , I appreciated having him there to support myself as a newbee. He was a man of great conviction in whatever he endeavored to do. I was fortunate to have called him my friend! Love to your family Pat, go rest easy cowboy, you deserve it.!! Thank you for all you have done for so many. 💜

I attended the Hamilton Gun Show this past weekend and was saddened to see Patrick's tables were missing and learn of his passing.  Visiting with him was always a highlight of my show experience - he always brought knowledge and humor to his tables full of interesting and amazing wares.  My husband and I enjoyed listening to his stories, buying his beads and earrings and watching him banter with his many friends.  Our condolences to his family and friends.  We shall truly miss him.  Carole & Dick Turner

I have just learned of Pat's passing and I'm so very sorry for your loss.  I worked for the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association for 39 years.  Pat was usually one of the first people I would stop and visit with at his booth there on Commercial Row.  He was so knowledgeable and our conversations ranged from forestry to his business there on CR to our personal lives and everything in between.  I will truly miss seeing and visiting with him.
