Condolences for Patric E. Hempl “Pat”

Obviously we were unaware of Pat's fight and final death from lymphoma. Had we known, we would have attended the service. He was our first cousin, and we have many warm memories of family gatherings at Gtandma and Grandpa Sokell's house on 34th street. We are saddened by his passing, and offer condolences on behalf of ourselves and our families. Dave Charles, Bob Charles, and Linda Mankowski

The Northeast Wisconsin Spaniel Club members send Mary and her family our deepest sympathy. As a group we have known him for many years - he was our gun captain, a competitor, a winner, our friend. Many of us have trained with him or competed with him at field trials or hunt test. He will be missed by all - a sad day in the spaniel world. We send you our prayers and love.

So sorry to hear this. I did not know he was ill, and had not seen Pat in many years. So sorry for your loss. Knew him thru field trialing with the spaniels.

There are so many memories of Pat in training and trials that to pick one is difficult at best. We bantered back and forth all the time about guns and gunning, among a lot of other good natured teasing. I will d de arly miss those times but I'm relieved that he is in a better place watching ovee all of us. He will be missed!
