Forever a devoted family man, nothing made Patrick happier than spending time with his wife and family. His grandchildren were driven to succeed by always knowing the smile that would beam from their grandfather's face after hearing of one of their many accomplishments. Patrick was a faithful church-goer, and always looked forward to the next holiday celebration with his family. Known for his dry sense of humor, Patrick enjoyed relaxing on his deck with his coffee and danish, and reading the latest news on his iPad.

He was the dear brother of Mildred Manto and her husband Perry, Genevieve Poisseioux and her husband Willie, John Russomano and his wife Lucille, Ralph Russomano and his partner Donna, Tom Russomano and his wife Pat and Patricia Krebs, and brother-in-law of Josephine Russomano and Elizabeth Harley.
