I was heartbroken to hear of PLA's passing. I worked with him at Home Telecom for many years. Like Jodi mentioned, I can't think of Pat without thinking of his red and green Converse at the Christmas party. He always had a great attitude and never let anything get him down. I was touched to read about all of the people he has impacted around the globe through both cycling and software development networks. The world has lost a true gem.

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel about PLA's passing. I have worked with PLA for almost 17 years and it has been a pleasure getting to know him during this time. I am truly heartbroken and will miss him so much. My favorite memory of PLA is when he would show up to our Home Telecom Christmas parties wearing one red and one green Converse tennis shoe. I thought that was hilarious and only PLA could pull it off so well! Please know that your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

What a shock. Worked at Home Telecom with PLA for 24 years prior to my retirement.
He could Tear-Up a computer.
He could Tear-Up a guitar.
Coworker and Friend.

I am so sorry to learn of Patrick's untimely death. I have such fond memories of him and your family as you grew up on John Rutledge. I am praying that God will fill each of you with His peace, comfort and love in the days ahead.

Pat or like most of those of us who worked with him knew him, PLA was a ONE of a kind all round "GREAT GUY"! He was one of those men that could say more by saying nothing than most of us can by attempting to explain something. He was more than a coworker to me, he was one man I am so happy to call and have known as a true "friend". He is and will always be missed! God, has again taken 0ne of the good ones home! Bless you ,PLA.

I'm from the Netherlands and I met Patrick online because we shared the same passion for cycling. He was always kind enough to answer any question I had. He truly inspired me to get my bicycle and get out on the road. I will miss him.

Patrick or @pla as I knew him was an inspiration to me. As a fellow cyclist his passion was infectious. I'm so sorry for his families loss and send you all my sympathy and best regards from Broken Hill in Australia.
