So sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I knew Pat since Prescott when my brothers and I used to walk to school with him. He had such a kind heart, always ready with a friendly greeting, and always showed genuine interest in those around him. A good soul indeed! Rest in peace Patrick.
Godspeed Patrick. Pray for me, and we’ll get together on the other side.
I’m so sorry for your passing Patrick. I’m really glad I got to reconnect with you more recently. I know you’re with your mom now. Maybe we can play a round of golf down the road.
Thanks for being such a good friend to so many around you.
You will be remembered and loved for your friendship and camaraderie.

My condolences on the early loss of Patrick J. O’Brien. Our paths seldom crossed since high school, but at reunions he was always there greeting all with a big smile and a deep voiced “hello”. May your family find peace and love in his gentle absence.
So sad to learn of Pat’s passing. Sometimes there are simply no words, only the hope in our hearts and faith in our souls that can comfort us. Wishing all who loved Pat a peaceful heart during this sad journey. He will be greatly missed by many.
My heart goes out to friends and family of Patrick O’Brien. A true gem, one of a kind guy. He was my manager and gave me a shot. I learned a lot about sales and customer service from him. To this day, I’m never caught with out all my bills faced. Pat taught me to respect money. I always think of him when I face my bills. A joy to be around, one of the funniest guys I know. Pat will be truly missed. God bless Patrick and all that know him. Weston A. Quick
I’ve known Pat since Prescott Elementary. He was one of those kind and gentle souls with positive regard for most everyone. Our paths didn’t cross much after high school, and I was happy when we reconnected via facebook. He’ll be missed.
Pat was very special to Jim and I and all of our family. He spent time with us through the years and we always enjoyed being with him. We kept in touch these past years by phone calls. He would call to let us know about his illness and ask for our prayers. I will miss those calls. We have known him since he was a small boy. We have lots of good memories of him. He thought of us as Aunt Mary Jo and Uncle Jim and always called our boys cuz as cousins. He had a great sense of humor. We love him and will miss him alot. Love Aunt Mary Jo and uncle Jim and cousins
To Pat’s family and friends, my sincere condolences on the loss of a wonderful, gregarious, kind man. You will be missed Pat.
You lifted spirits daily in the lives of many!
You will be missed dearly by all that knew you.
I have missed our morning banter as I filled my cup with diet coke each morning. You always had to give me a hard time about your hanging out with the Pi Phi’s and sneaking into the house “many a time”! You were an ornery guy who made people have a better day. Thank you for being a friend! I miss you!
Vaya con Dios, my “Irish” amigo, Pat. It’s been quite a party.
So sorry to learn about Pat’s passing. Thoughts and prayers to you and family.
I am so sorry I will not be able to celebrate Pats life with you all. I will be in Denver babysitting my grandson.
Pat always had a nickname for you, a funny story and the memory of an elephant. While his passing is too soon, I know he is at peace and pain-free. Pat you will always hold a very special place in my heart ❤️
A good and loyal friend since the second grade at Prescott Elementary. A great guy that will be missed by many. Thank you Patrick O’Brien for the fun and friendship all these years!
Just heard Pat died, so very sad! He is a fabulous person, enjoyed being his friend!
Cousin Pat was gregarious & full of life. I have many great memories of him from all my life. Even though my boys only met Pat at our July 4th celebrations, when he passed they reacted by saying “I love that guy”. Rest in peace “Cuz” & know that you are loved.
I don’t know how to say goodbye to such a dear friend. You will truly be missed. Love and prayers.
I knew Pat when I was a kid growing up at the Knolls then again after I moved back to Lincoln 13 years ago. He was always fun to talk to and always had a grin on his face. RIP Pat
My Dad gave Pat his first haircut. When he retired, Pat made sure to have an appointment on his last day of work. That meant a lot to my Dad. My first memory of Pat was playing kick soccer at
Prescott. He could kick that ball clear across the playground. And man could he run! I’m sad I didn’t get to reconnect with him before he passed away.
Goodbye my friend. I’ll see you on the other side😊
