Patrick, you're an awesome duder. And your father probably was an awesome duder as well. My condolences. I really hope that the support from the community is helping you in any way possible.

Right. Because that's the important thing to take away from this

Any death is always hard. I wish you the best Patrick.

@wmaustin55: It's the most important.

Is there a place that lists all the "Worth Reading" articles? I've been wanting to revisit something I found in one of them, but I've been having trouble finding it again.

I'm more or less precisely Patrick's age and my dad's dying would fucking suck. My thoughts and condolences man.

Sorry for your loss Patrick. :-(

#123 Posted by Humanity (8814 posts) -

My condolences to Patrick although I find it bizarre that he would tweet that stuff.

#124 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

I'm feeling really sad right now. This news reminded me that this thing will happen to me one day as well. I'm terribly sorry for your loss Patrick.

Sorry for your loss.

@Humanity: Twitter's a good outlet if you're a person with a following of generally normal or well-natured people.

At least his dad knew for sure Patrick was gonna get hitched, unlike a lot of our fathers.

Make your progenitors proud, ladies and gentlemen. You'll never know when you won't be able to talk to them again, ask them for advice, poke 'em in the ribs over stupid things, eat Chicago-style whatever together...

I don't know what religion you subscribe to, Tricky, but He'll be at your wedding in some way. Count on it.

I think that was filmed before. I wouldn't expect him to be on any features for a bit. I know I wouldn't want to for at least a few days, probably a week.

I also share this same comment.
#131 Posted by Poppduder (460 posts) -

This makes me really sad. I could always tell by the way Patrick talked about his father on the podcast a few times that they were close. Considering how close I am to Patricks age and my father to his father's age, I really really feel for him. Much love, chin up, cherish the memories and never forget.

So sad to hear about this. I'm really sorry Patrick.

 Losing a family member is never easy. My condolences, Patrick.

#135 Posted by Ksaw (341 posts) -

Very Sorry to hear that. I lost my dad When I was 27 and needless to say, it was awful. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that your dad got to see you do what you want to do with your life and succeed at it.

#136 Posted by Johnny_Reckless (16 posts) -

I'm so sorry Patrick. You're a fantastic member of the GB staff, and your father must have been extremely proud of you. You and I are very close to the same age, and I'm getting married in a month, so I understand how hard this must be for you now. Nothing any of us can say will make it better, but just know that we all are thinking about you.

#137 Posted by patrickklepek (3478 posts) -

Thank you.

#138 Posted by Rmack (1075 posts) -

I may rip on Patrick a bit on Quick Looks or whatever, but I'd never wish something like this upon him. I'm really sorry to hear about his loss and hope he finds the strength to make it through. I wish nothing but the best for he and his family and, being the same age as him, take his advice to heart.

#139 Posted by Getz (2989 posts) -

My heart goes out to you, Tricky.

Sorry to hear. Since Patrick's been instrumental in making Chicago seem like GB's second city, I've been appreciating him more and more!

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Patrick. My dad also passed away around my second time graduating from college. I was excited to have him come visit me again, but then he was gone. We had just mended our relationship as well. I'm sorry.
