    My condolences to all of Pat's family. I was a good friend of his in high school and college and we shared many fun times both in and out of the laboratory. He was always such a friendly and humorous companion. I had not seen him in quite a few years but just recently had talked to him by phone and he was still just like his old self. He will be greatly missed.

    We so enjoyed spending time on Pat’s boat years ago when he gave us a beautiful tour of Kemah. My sisters Jane and Martha were able to join also. Our Father, Walter, was always impressed with Pat’s intelligence. Condolences from the Kluge cousins.
