UNCLE PAT WAS ONE OF A KIND AND ILL NEVER THINK OF ST PATRICKS DAY THAT I DONT THINK OF HIM. HIS GORGEOUS RED HAIR, BEAUTIFUL SMILE AND NAUGHTY MOST OF THE TIME SENSE OF HUMOR..HE NEVER SAW ME THAT HE DIDNT SAY “YOU WANT TO HEAR A JOKE” HE WAS A WONDERFUL HUSBAND , PROVIDER,AND FATHER. HE MARRIED SHIRLEY OBERST AND THEY HAD ABOUT A DOZEN KIDS.. I LEARNED HOW TO HAVE DINNERS WITHOUT FUSS FROM THEM… EVERYONE WAS AT ONE TABLE AND WHEN THE FOOD WAS PAST IF YOU DIDNT LIKE IT YOU SAID NO THANK YOU AND MADE A PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHE.. AT LEAST THATS HOW I REMEMBER IT..
UNCLE COULD PLAY THE FIDDLE OUT OF THIS WORLD.. AT LEAST HE WON THE MONTANA STATE FIDDLERS CHAMPIONSHIP SEVERAL YEARS/ HE WAS KNOWN FOR THE ORANGE BLOOSOM SPECIAL. OH WHAT ID GIVE TO HEAR HIM PLAY IT AGAIN..
WHEN HE RETIRED FROM THE PULP MILL HE AND HIS BAND BUDDIES WENT TO 9 DIFFERENT REST HOMES AND PLAYED FOR THE FOLKS EACH WEEK..
HE WAS THE DARLING OF HIS MOTHER. AND BEING THE YOUNGEST LIVING CHILD THE DARLING OF THE WHOLE FAMILY.
IF I EVER SENT OUT A ST PADDYS DAY CARD IT WAS TO UNCLE.. THEY JUST REMINDED ME OF HIM…
I LOVE YOU UNCLE
