|Notes: Pat was raised in Napa.
In 1928 he registered to vote in Napa as a Republican and worked as a lather.|
Pat broke with his family over religion. He was embarrassed by his parents' very public activities which included playing in a local Salvation Army band on a prominent downtown Napa street corner. Pat was also a bit of a rascal who enjoyed playing cards, dancing, and smoking cigars. His parents were very disapproving of these activities and especially frowned on Pat's drinking which grated on them and must have embarassed them, especially as they were strict temperance folks — even attending Prohibition Party meetings. Nevertheless, Pat had a deep respect for the mission of the SA.
In 1930 Pat was married, living in Martinez, California, and working as an operator at an oil refinery. That marriage, however, was a short one.
In 1932 Pat was back in Napa where he again registered to vote as a Republican.
In 1933 Pat married his second wife. They were in Alameda county in 1935.
On 6 Nov 1942 Pat enlisted as a Private in the U.S. Army Air Corps. At that time he was 37½ years old, 5'9" tall, weighed 161 pounds, and living in Los Angeles County.
The photograph at the right shows Pat at the Army/Navy Club on Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach, California, while on leave in 1943.
In 1946, 1951, and 1998 Pat was in Los Angeles County.
When Pat became elderly and was asked what arrangements he wanted if he should ever happen to die, he said, "Well, I don't want any great funeral or anything." He paused for some time then went on, "but maybe you could get a Salvation Army person to say a few words." Even though, apart from one funeral and my brother's wedding, Pat never set foot in a church, Major Hood of the Long Beach Salvation Army Corps officiated at his funeral.
