  1. Roland LeFort President CEP Local 707 :

    My sincerest condolences to all of Pat’s family. Pat was not only a co-worker, but also a friend. Pat had the ability to make everybody around him grateful for all they had. He will be remembered by all he worked with for his famous saying over the radio after the last coffee ” Good Morning I Shift , It’s great to be alive.” Again
    on behalf of the 3200 members of CEP local 707 our sincerest condolences.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Walsh family at this time. We have not had the privilege of meeting Pat ourselves … but know he should be proud of the legacy he brought into this world and is leaving behind.
