    So sorry to hear this news....Always enjoyed visiting with Pat at his office in St Louis while I was covering the Eastern Region for Dollar Corp from '86-'89. He was always upbeat about his business and was one of the really solid Licensees during good times and tough times. RIP, Pat.

    Sorry to hear of Pat's death. Worked with him often during my 20 years with Dollar. He always had good reputable operations and will be missed.
