So surprised to find Pat’s name while looking for another.  I remember when his parents lived on Stone st., around corner from our place on S. Meadow.  He was seeing his then fiancé who had apt. next door to us.
His mother was a great aunt, cousin to Edna Pringle Fyles and daughter of Alice York Philbrook.  So sorry to be so far away, down near Phoenix. AZ. 
Also didn’t know he had lost a son.  This Newzjunky is such a help to find family.  Praying Blessings on all his survivors…with Love in Jesus.  Elly F Zimmer
