Default RIP Pat Housel

The following messages were posted and am sending them on. They all help tell Pat's story. I couldn't say it better:

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you, our SCCA community, that we have lost another fallen racer/volunteer. A stand out man with the kindness of hearts and generosity has passed away from a very rapid onset of pancreatic cancer. Pat Housel a Reno and SFR region member lost his brief battle with this deadly cancer. He has logged countless hours in the car and moreover volunteering for all of us that enjoy our racing weekends. if you were lucky enough to know Pat, then you knew that first; he loved to talk, and second he loved to HELP. RIP our friend.
Loved Pat. I will miss his humor, and his cheesy jokes. I canít believe he went so fast. RIP my friend
I have never met Pat, only via messages. He doesnít know me or Justin but he offered to help us get tires from Tire Rack NV so our friends can pick it up from him the next day just so we can have rain tires ready for Nationals. Just from messages, you can tell heís kind and always want to have a crack at some jokes. RIP Pat!

RIP Pat. I'm sure he's still yakking with the the keeper of the pearly gates about something automotive. A good guy gone.
