    I just received a phone call from Pat's wife ~ telling me that Pat collapsed tonight and died. She does not know about when arrangements will be, but she will let me know. I will inform all of you when the funeral will be held.

    It is very sad night for trap shooting.

    OMG. I did not persoanlly know him but feel as i did from the forum. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family. I suddenly don't feel like posting and having fun tonight. Right before Christmas. I'm really saddened by this. Good night all.

    Oh, this is a grave shock. Pat is a friend of Martin and mine, and to many on here. We just don't want to believe this is true. This is going to be a dreary Christmas.
