Elected as a KSRA Life Member in 2007.
Known for his laid-back approach to officiating, Pat was a founding member of the Kamloops Soccer Referees Association who served the Kamloops Soccer Refereeing Community for over 35 years.
One of the most devoted advocates of youth referee development, Pat was one of the main driving forces behind the organization of youth referee clinics in the Kamloops Area.
In spite of his having retired from refereeing and from his position at UCC in 1994, Pat remains active on the golf course, the ski slopes and offering "advice" to our current officials at TRU Wolfpack matches.
