In Memoriam>RIP Patteeu

Patteau was my friend. That may surprise some of you, but we were real life friends for 15+ years, I met Gene at my Arrowhead tailgate sometime in the mid 2000ís. It was the only time we ever met face to face. We hit it off at the tailgate. We only knew each other from Chiefs Planet, we were obviously totally opposites in our political views but outside of that subject, we found we had a lot in common.

We decided to stay in real life contact after the game. Over the 15+ years we kept in touch with what was happening in our real lives. We worked together many times on the packages for the troops. He gave his time and not just money to help get those packages out to the troops.

He was so proud of his daughters. He would go on about how smart they were. Both are successful in life now. They live in NY and LA and as he said so proudly, just as conservative in their views as him.

Gene went through a divorce, daughters moving to different states. Moving etc. I shared with him my sonís path, my moves, milestones etc.

And then there was Geneís health issues. I swore to keep them to myself. Sometimes I wanted to defend him about being short or aggressive towards someone. You would be short too if you only Ĺ of one lung left.

At the end, Gene needed a walker to move. On oxygen all the time. Have multiple cancers in different places. Paralysis in his right arm so when he posted on the Planet. He was only able to post using his one good arm and hand.

He was still fighting all that to the end. He did not go gently into the night. He went out fighting death with everything he had. I can only hope that when my time comes, Iíll have the courage he showed.

I will miss my friend.

Gene is the one behind Stevie Ray on the left.

Wow, RIP.

Wow. When he said he was leaving, I honestly thought it was a joke, because he's such a mainstay of CP. I wish I could have met him, I really enjoyed his posts and rep comments. May the Lord welcome him into His kingdom. May his family find peace. God rest your soul Pat (Gene) will be missed.

RIP, patteau. I suggest the DC forum be renamed the patteau memorial forum in his honor. He made that part of CP more civil and palatable.

All joking from his goodbye thread aside, Iím sad to hear this news.

patteau and I didnít agree on much beyond the awesomeness of Patrick Mahomes II and the Chiefs fandom.

I hope his family is at peace and can find comfort in knowing his pain and difficulties are ended.

Another CP OG gone. Damn.

Patteau was a gentleman. He came across as a really nice guy. I never once saw him snap or hurl any kind of insult to another poster.

He seemed like a good man. RIP Patteau
