Poppy was a retired self-employed welder most his life, his perfection work is show cased all over Lincoln County. People always said, “ain’t nothin Pat can’t weld”! But his love was the cowboy life that shows here in the photo of him on one of his favorite horses Dollar.  His artistic ability and his ability to be quite the comedian, he could keep you interested for hours! His last years have been tough as COPD took over his lungs and every breath were a struggle! He is breathing free on the highest mountain now!

Poppy’s wishes were no service, he wanted to be cremated and ashes spread North of Capitan where he found the most peace! The family would like to thank you for all your prayers and condolences RIP Poppy, we love you!
