Elected as a KSRA Life Member in 2007.
During his officiating years, Pat was a tremendously well-respected referee amongst both his colleagues and the players under his control. Another founding member of the Kamloops Soccer Referees Association, Pat refereed for 16 years in the Kamloops area and around the province of British Columbia. Pat's experiences allowed him to eventually attain Class 2 referee status. A dedicated member of the KSRA, Pat served on the association's executive no less than 14 years (including 2 as president). A true sports fan and supporter, Pat stepped back from refereeing in 1995; however, he can often be seen around the soccer fields watching his grandchildren play.

The Kamloops Soccer Referees Association is a society that is rich in tradition and history. Over the years, several members have made contributions to the association above and beyond the call of duty. There have, however, been a few members whose contributions were so substantial that they have been voted as Life Members of the Kamloops Soccer Referees Association. Please see below for the criteria necessary for Life Membership in the KSRA:
Life Membership (LM): Are referees or former referees who have served the KSRA beyond the call of duty during which they have held volunteer board positions and contributed unselfishly to serve referees, referee development and the KSRA. They must be nominated by the board and supported by a majority of the membership vote at the AGM. The LM pays no fees but has full voting privileges. As KSRA life members still owe a fee to the BCSRA, the KSRA will pay these fees for all life members out of the general account.
