Memories Timeline


  1. Thinking of you and your families. We were so sorry to hear of Patrick’s passing. Peter and Nitsa Mandas and Family

  2. So sorry to read this. Tried calling Patrick since it’s been two years today that Dianne passed. May they both rest in peace.

  3. Pat and I were Marine Corps brothers and both of us loved shooting sports. Major Jim Land and his wife Elly brought Pat and me together since both of us were lead slinging Marine Gunners. I regret that I have just learned of Patrick’s death today, more than three months late. He went off-line earlier this year and I didn’t think much of it. He lived in the vast wilderness called Alaska and going dark for months on end is not unusual. So, this news of Pat strikes me in the heart and I am very sad knowing that he passed on to Heaven without he and I having a few parting jabs. I plan on seeing Pat when I get up there and join the Marine battalion guarding Heaven’s gate. He and I have many dear friends there and I am sure that Patrick is adding to their joy. My prayers and love go to Patrick’s family, his children and grandchildren, who he loved greatly. Marines are difficult people, especially those like Pat and me, who have looked the Devil in the eye more than once. But I know Pat’s heart was pure and filled with love for his brother Marines and more so for his family. May God bless each of you O’Mahoneys and give you great peace at heart. Semper Fidelis.
