Pat first saw Susan in class at the University of North Dakota in 1958 - he was just out of the Marine Corps and he just knew now was not the time. In 1969 he again saw Susan, from his Law office window. His law partner Don Olson arranged the date and the rest is history. Susan and Pat were married Sept. 30th, 1971. He hasn’t made a goose season opener since. They are the parents of daughters Stacey and Melissa, and son Daniel. A quiet family gathering is planned.
