Please help us as we raise funds to help his family through this incredibly difficult time. The money we raise will be used to pay funeral and final arrangements. Any money that remains will go directly to Diana and their two sons, Elliot and Finnegan.
Patrick impacted thousands of lives in his short time here on Earth. He was a man who gave of himself to anyone and everyone he met, whether they were one of his students, a fellow filmmaker, or just a friend in need. A gifted writer and filmmaker, a teacher and mentor to many, and a dedicated father to his sons, there's simply no way to calculate the number of lives that have been impacted for the better simply by having him in it.
When he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in June of 2016 he was told that he would not live past December 24th of that year. With a strength that defies description he fought and lived well over a year past that date, thanks in part to the generosity of those who supported our first campaign. We now ask you once more to please help Patrick with this final task of ensuring that his loved ones aren't burdened with the financial toll that comes with his passing.
