TFDS Staff writer Bret Armstrong had this to say:

"Patrick- You will always be a mentor to me, man. I don't know why the world would want to take you away from us when you still had so much to offer and to give in life. Whenever I think of you in the future the thing I will probably remember the most was your laugh. I guess that's a good thing.

"You'll never know how much you actually influenced me and my writing. It was a great honor and a privilege to work with you and to be a part of your life even if it was just for a short time. You'll always be in my heart, big guy, and I can only hope to carry on this website in a way that would still make you proud to be a part of it with us.

"An honorable man, and I know he will be dearly missed by those who were close to him. My heart just goes out to his family and his close friends because I didn't know very much about him outside of our work together, but what I did know is that he was a very kind hearted and good spirited person. I love you bro, rest in peace."
