Pat's hobby was raising watermelon and muskmelon, which he sold under the old oak tree. People
came from surrounding counties each year to purchas his choice melons. However, it was the people he enjoyed who stayed
to visit and talk, sometimes several carloads of people enjoying the conversation and chance to see neighbors and friends.
He loved the outdoors and wildlife, especially the birds which he fed throughout the entire year. While his health permitted,
he was an avid bowler, and he was a Royals baseball fam. Not only his family, but many friends will miss him and
share pleasant memories.
