Patrick was born in Madison and raised up north in Marinette. He started working before he could drive, busing tables at a family restaurant for minimum wage. After graduating from high school, Patrick chose to make Stevens Point home when he enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP). Despite the busy schedule he kept while on campus, Patrick spent each of his summer, winter, and spring breaks back in Marinette working to pay for his education.
Following family tradition, he took a job at Silvan Industries, a carbon steel and industrial grade stainless steel pressure vessel fabricator. He worked overnight shifts chipping slag off of welds and cleaning tank interiors in the same factory his grandfather retired from. He gave back to his community by volunteering as a coach for the football team in nearby Crivitz. He also worked for Aacer Flooring, a hardwood flooring manufacturer, stacking lumber and prepping it for the kilns. Patrick even spent a summer working two jobs – groundskeeper and maintenance man for the School District of Marinette by day and package handler loading trucks for UPS by night.
Shortly after graduating from UW-Stevens Point with a bachelor’s degree in political science, Patrick met Hannah, his wife, whom he married in 2017. Hannah works as the Director of Advancement for Pacelli Catholic Schools in Stevens Point. They live in the Town of Hull together with their rescue dogs Reilly and Sage.
Patrick takes pride in his strength training and is a member of 212 Fitness where he can be seen frequently. He is an avid hunter, history buff, and big Wisconsin Badger football fan.
