After several years living in Dallas, Pat and Ellie decided to follow their passion and moved to Israel to become missionaries. It was there that their first daughter, Elizabeth, was born. Upon returning to Texas, they moved to Granbury and had their second daughter, Becka. Pat worked as an engineer for various companies including Lockheed Martin, Dee Howard, General Dynamics and Bombardier. He was the pastor of Praise Temple in Glen Rose.

He is survived by his wife of almost 54 year, Ella MacCourt of Granbury; his daughter, Becka Grubbs and her husband Ryan Grubbs of Flower Mound; and his three grandchildren, Taylor, Cash and Presley.
