A few months later Patrick was selected for a special program and sent to Quantico, Virginia for an additional 10 weeks of training for Officer Candidate School (OCS) where he graduated as a Second Lieutenant. Following that he attended another 26 weeks of The Basic School (TBS) to learn the art and science of being an Officer of Marines. He was eventually trained to be an Air Defense Controller. Patrick was honorably discharged as a Captain in 1987. He will be greatly missed.

Patrick is survived by his mother, Jean Davis, and his brothers Michael, Thomas, and David as well as his sisters Maureen (Donohue), Michelle (Branham), and Molly.
