He was Born in Killeen, Texas on April 3, 1964 to Sidney and Kay Young. He and his four siblings: Wil, Chris, Cydney, and Amy, are sixth generation Texans. He attended Killeen Public Schools and graduated from Killeen High School. He was a very talented athlete in many different sports, but his real passion was the game of Baseball. He went on to college and graduated from ACU in 1987; the same year that he met and married the love of his life, Evelyn.
He focused on his career in Long Term Care Administration for 15 years and then made a career change to work in the funeral Industry at Elmwood Funeral Home, with a group of fellow employees, that became very bonded like family, in their job of aiding families through the loss of a loved one.
Pat and Evelyn were married for almost 35 years and raised their three children: Sean, Anna, and Mary Rachel in Abilene/ View.

But, his greatest desire, has been to teach them who Jesus Christ is and what He did to save us, through his perfect sacrifice/ blood.
