I worked with Pat at Linder's Ice Cream for several years. His Twin Brother Mike would come in with his girlfriend. What a great guy, Pat was. He was one of the nicest guys anyone would want to meet. I will never forget him, nor his Brother Mike. Back in the day, the twins were in a Karate commercial that aired between the Sammy Terry movie. I'd love to see that commercial again. God has another Angel. Memories
