He attended and graduated from Crozier Tech School in Dallas, TX. He continued his education and received his Associates Degree from the University of Harlingen, Harlingen, TX. He was the proud father of three sons and two daughters, Caesar, Pamela, Dominic, Carmen, and Ramon. He won the love of his life with his singing voice, working as a nightclub entertainer in Dallas. He was a true people person, he loved them and they adored this sweet and talented man. His family was always his first and foremost in his life. He worked numerous jobs including as a repossession officer for various banks locally among other jobs. There was nothing better to Pat than to gather those he loved around him for one of his famous meals of enchiladas, tacos and a wide variety of Mexican specialties. He loved antique cars and trucks of all makes and models, and was a member of the 5C's Car Club in Tahlequah. His mastery of paint and body work was something to watch, he was a true artist. He was always up to a pool tournament and possessed a room full of trophies to prove he was quite good at it as well! He liked billiards and a good game of poker, and could make an afternoon of entertaining you with his stories and jokes. He loved his grand and great grandchildren unconditionally, and there were no better people on earth than his grandchildren. He was proud of all their accomplishments and they were his pals and best friends on earth. A Roman Catholic by faith, the Lord called this kind and wonderful man from this life into his eternal rest on March 29th, 2017 in Tulsa, OK with his family by his side. Pat was 72 years old. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
