Pat PintoPat Pinto
June 1951 – April 2013

Pat was our Maintenance/Handy Man.

There’s not an inch of our school that he hadn’t fixed, painted or beautified in some way. 

He enjoyed golfing, playing cards, fishing with his boys, hunting and spending time outdoors. He was an amazing cook both in the kitchen and on the BBQ.

We will surely miss his good natured personality and of course, spontaneous outbursts of song.
