Patrick believed in giving back to the community and spent his career working in the public sector. He was the Administrator of the Family Division of The Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County since 2003 and previously worked as the Manager in the Allegheny County Solicitor’s Office, Department of Human Services and Child Support (1992 – 2003), Deputy Administrator of the Allegheny County Family Division (1989 – 1992), and within the Child Support Unit of the Allegheny County Solicitor’s Office (1984 – 1989). He served on many local and national boards and associations in an effort to improve the family court system. Patrick received his B.A. in 1977 and his J.D. in 1984, both from Duquesne University, where he was an All American defensive end for the Dukes’ football team.
Patrick loved nothing more in life than being with his family and friends. His face lit up every time he saw his grandkids and he absolutely adored spending time with them. Patrick’s second greatest pleasure in life was coaching youth sports. Throughout decades of coaching, Patrick had an impact on the lives of countless children, always emphasizing the importance of fundamentals, teamwork and hard work.
