Met him at a few Bownanza's back in the day. Heck of a guy for sure. Believe we might have shared a drink or two.

Prayers for his family and friends.

Oh man, this one hurts! Dale, I don't post much anymore, but I did see this and I must say it floored me!! Thank you for posting, but It sure was a gut punch to read! I can't say I knew Matt well, but I can tell you he touched me in a great way the interactions that we did have. Way back when Chew was going through his battle with Colon cancer, we had a big TBH fund-raiser and auction to help him with his bills... Patek put up a fishing trip to Rockport and I bought it... didn't really have time to go fishin'. I was just wanting to help Chew out and decided I'd wait 'til Chew could go with me on the trip... Old Patek kept after me on when I wanted to go fishin'... and I never got around to scheduling it... Me n Chew never got hooked up together to take time to go... Several years later, I got an email from Matt telling me that trip was still good whenever I wanted to go... Wouldn't take no for an answer... even offered to give me my money back!! I sure regret not going fishin' with him!! I'm so, so sorry I won't get to this side of Heaven now... Knowing him, I bet he'll take me when I get there tho!!



Lord God in Heaven, receive this Soul into Your eternal Rest. Give him his mansion that You built for him, one that's big enough for Steph and the girls too... In that day, at the appropriate time, we all look forward to that union when we can all sing praises to You oh Lord. I ask for a calming peace for the family and friends that brings forth Hope in their eternal homeplace. Lord put folks around them as they mourn and give them earthly support right now as they need someone to lean upon. Give them all strength to endure this tragedy and come through this trial to better days down the road... After the mourning period, Lord, please help them to begin the healing process and the movement toward their Joy that is theirs to have at the appropriate time. Lord, I ask for comfort for all his friends and especially so for our brother Dale. Lord a friend is like family and in some cases, even more close to us than family. We don't get to choose our family, but we do our friends and it is obvious that our brother Dale chose wisely in choosing the Patek family. Comfort them and keep them safe from harm as they weather this storm until is subsides. We ask these things in the powerful name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.

Well said Dmo, it’s numbing. I hope he and Erv are chasing tailing reds in the great beyond. It was an honor to have known him and shared the great outdoors with him from Rockport to the SR. Until we meet again, God speed. You will be missed.

On a side note..
I bought a really nice Remington 700 .270 off of Matt several months ago. We talked awhile in his garage, he mentioned getting on a lease with you, Dale. Seemed like a great guy. He also told me his daughter used this rifle to kill her first deer (I believe). If the family or any friends would like it as a sentimental piece, I understand and will gladly part with it.

I had a relative pass away a few years back. What I remember most is that no one really had a good thing to say about him. It was an epiphany for me that all we really leave behind here is our legacy and we should cement it being the best version of ourselves while we are here. Hearing what I’m hearing about this man, I have no doubt he was everything y’all say he was and more. I’m so sorry your losses, my prayers are with you all.

Beautifully written, Dale. Patek never met a stranger and I feel confident saying anyone who knew him regardless of how long, walked away feeling like they’d gained a close friend. I’ve told the Patek on Patek story to countless people over the years as it says a ton about someone’s character that they’d go through with a bet like that. So many prayers to everyone connected to Matt, he was truly one of the greats.

From golfing in our tournament barefoot to the crazy bet that ended in tattoo....he could really make anyone laugh and have a great time. I have sure enjoyed watching his Instagram Feed with the girls....there was no doubt the love he had for his family.

Was terrible, heart breaking news to get .... thoughts and prayers for his family.

Heartbreaking news. Little girls shouldn't have to grow up without their Daddy. If there is anything that the Patek family needs, please let us know. Meanwhile, we will pray for some peace in the lives of his family and friends. It sure seems like he left a lot of friends here on earth. That alone says a lot about the man. May God hold him close.
