He was born in the Bronx to the late Brigid (nee Curtin) and Patrick O'Connor. He was predeceased by his siblings James, John, and Mary Gaine. He was both an avid Yankee and Giants Fan.
Patrick was a proud 1954 graduate of Cardinal Hayes High School. After graduation he spent 30+ years working for the U.S. Postal Service at various locations in the Bronx and also worked part time at The New York Times as a Paper Handler.

He had already moved to Dumont, N.J. with his family and was quite happy there for the remainder of his life.
