07/21/1967 - 11/02/2020

I was born in Kansas in 1967. I grew up with six sisters and one brother. I was raised in the Catholic Church and given the gift of faith by my parents, Tom and Mary Lou. In 1984 my family moved to Colorado wherein 1987 I was given my second gift of Faith, my wife, and love of my life for 33 years. Together, Faith and I raised six amazing children and we ran a cabinetry business for 25 years. I leave behind my wife, Faith. My son Jacob and his family, Danni, Reagan, Rori & Rylee. My sons Luke, Kaleb, his fiance Vanessa, and Joe. My daughter Maggie and her husband Garett and my daughter Delilah. I also leave behind my parents, Tom and Mary Lou. My sisters Kristi, Nancy, Annie, Theresa and Andrea and my brother Mike. My oldest sister Kelly passed away before me. I loved my life and my family and I would not have changed any of it.

On Saturday, November 21st, there will be a private, family only church service, due to Covid 19 restrictions. Following that there will be an outdoor memorial service at LePlatt's Pond 311 CR. 501 Bayfield, CO 81122, at 1:00pm, open to the public.

Thank you Pat for being the incredible man you were! The man I am, the father, the friend, the brother, the person I strive to be would not be here if your influence hadn't have been there. Much love to your family.
We love you all so very much!

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for your loss. Pat was just a great kid who grew up to be a great guy in whichever role he found himself. He was kind, generous, hard-working, and very loving to his family and others. I am going to miss that great smile and his laugh.

I lived in Bayfield for 10 years and attended St. Bart's church where I met the Zinc families. I taught Confirmation classes so had several of Pat's kids in my classes. When I had to move, Pat took over teaching for me when no one else would help. He also fixed a rocking chair for me that had been in the family for years - wanted to pass it on to my pregnant daughter. He wouldn't take any payment for the work - said it was his baby gift. I am so sad that this wonderful man left us way too early.
