Patrick Quigley—even after 8 years, I remember him. I used to work for PwC India and was seconded to a BI engagement in LA. We had a meeting that day at 11 AM with Pat, and a team lunch was planned after that.

It never happened.

It struck me, when I met him for the first time, that he has a degree in arts and he works primarily in technology. He was always a thorough professional and a good human being. I have tried to model myself after Pat, but God knows how I failed!

To his family, friends, and colleagues, I offer my heartfelt condolences. May the good Lord keep watch over your family and keep them safe. Rest in peace, Patrick.

I did not know him, but but my heart goes out to the family and friends. Let us never forget.

For years, I've never wanted to verify this, until now. My name is Karla, and I met Pat while working for Delta Air Lines. Pat was a contractor and I had not worked there long. This was in the early '90's. Every time I saw him, he had the biggest smile. Patrick lived here long enough that he had an apartment here, but I unfortunately met him at the end of his stay here. He was going back home in a few days. He invited me to go with him to dinner and see The Nutcracker. I had never been to a performance like that before, and it was amazing! Pat was such a gentleman. I felt like a true princess that night.

I was able to see some of Pat's paintings and was so amazed at how good they were. Like someone else mentioned, I was surprised at how good he was at art, yet he worked in technology. I gave Pat a snow globe (not sure the of its significance) the last time I saw him. I hated to see him go back home because he was one special person, and I knew I would probably never see him again. Anyway, I never worked anymore with him or knew anyone who knew of Patrick and was
glad tonite to find this page.

To his family: I am so thankful to have known Pat. He is truly an angel, I'm sure, looking down on you now. God bless you, and may you all reunite one day. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I came to know Pat through my brother, who worked with him years ago at Campbells Soup Co. We became close friends and spent many summers with Pat, sharing a house in Sea Isle City. Pat, myself, and two brothers rented the same house for several summers, and over those summers we created a close bond with Pat. We considered him a brother. We think of Pat and his family often. God bless you, Pat. We miss you!

Your brothers,
The Smiths

Dear Patty,

You may remember me. When I first met you, you and Pat were only engaged to be married. I remember the black Ford Taurus S.H.O. Leave it up to a fourteen-year-old to remember the car. That's not all I remember. I remember that you two loved each other very much, and I wish that you could have stayed in Georgia longer, so I could have had more time to spend with you guys. It was a short time, but you two left a lasting impression, and I know you did the same everywhere you traveled.

Remembering, as always, with love,
Chris Gott, Kristi Gott (my wife), Kaitlyn Gott (8 yr.), Andrew Gott (5 yr.), Abbygail Gott (4 yr.), Madeline Gott (4 months)
[Wow! All those kids don't help the South's reputation! HaHa!]

Once again, I visited your memorial site, like every year. Today, I thought about you.... You were such a great manager to me.... You'll always be missed.... May you R.I.P.... I'm sure your daughters, Rachel and Leah, are doing great and are proud to be your daughters!

I worked with Pat as a fellow partner at PwC—I talked to him just days before 9-11. I remember Patti, his wife, coming to talk to 600 of us shortly after, and all of us were deeply moved by her courage and the children. Pat, I saw your name at ground zero, and it still moves me to think that you are not here and watching your children grow up. Knowing you, though, you are looking down on them smiling!

We will never forget,

My grandfather was the 16th child of his mother, who died when he was 16. I wonder if we might be somehow related? Please e-mail back to: Jeff (dot) quigley (at) dmh (dot) mo (dot) gov.

I met Pat many years ago when I was in the executive search business. I represented Pat with one of my clients, CIT Group. They made him a very attractive offer, which he subsequently turned down, opting to pursue the partner track at PWC. I liked Pat instantly and stayed in touch for a while. Years went by, and I decided to track him down. It was then that I learned of his fate on 9/11. I live in NYC and still remember that day vividly. But when I found out about Pat, it was like being kicked in the stomach. I think of him often, and I think that if I had pushed him a bit harder and made it easier for him to take the job, then maybe he would still be here. My prayers go out to his family, and I hope they are well.

Just finished watching "Beyond Belief" on DVD. I loved the depth of emotion that came through in the film, loved how real Patti and Susan came across as being, and loved the story of their journey to help widows in Afghanistan. Remarkable women. But then I started wondering about Patrick Quigley—I wanted to learn a bit more about this guy, so I found this site while browsing for other information. Yes, he's gone before the movie begins, but his imprint remains on the people he left behind. Just wanted to add a note to this site to congratulate his parents and family—you've lost a son, but you can take comfort in the legacy he passed along.

Hi. My name is Brittany. In my English class we were reading a poem called "The Names" by Billy Collins, and your name was in it. So I looked it up and came upon this site. I just want to tell you that I am really sorry for what happened. You have my gratitude. Thank you.

Your friend,

Love you, Uncle Pat. Leah and Rachael are good. Wish you could be here to see the impact you have had on their lives. Everyone thinks about you constantly. I think about you a lot particularly because people think I look like you. Love you, in mine and everyone's heart for eternity, until we meet again.

I also worked with Pat at PWC. He was principled and I could also count on him to do the right thing. Pat was brilliant; it struck me that he had received a degree in the Arts though he worked primarily in technology. He had a great sense of humor and clearly loves his wife and daughter. It was a joy to end a day of work with a meal with Pat. My thoughts are with you, Patty, always.

Dear Patty and family,

I worked for Pat at PwC. I admired him and learned a great deal from him when he was my manager. All of my colleagues at PwC are saddened by this loss. Tonight, my wife and I will share a glass of one fine wine.... I am so sorry that he cannot do the same. He is not forgotten.

Dear Patty - Just thinking of you today- and always praying for you, Patrick, Rachel, and Leigh... and asking family and friends to pray for you smile- God loves you, from your cousin- Annie O'malley - from Towson, Maryland

I thought I didn't know anyone who died in 9/11, but in 2002 I was having lunch with someone from PwC, and I asked him if he knew Pat Quigley because I had worked with him around Business Intelligence opportunities. He looked at me as if he had seen a ghost and then told me that Pat was no longer with us. A very awkward and haunting moment.

I only had a working relationship with Pat, but he was very professional and appeared to have a very good track record and reputation in Professional Services. We all knew someone that died that day, because a little bit in all of us died that day.

Corinthians 16:14 Let all you do be done in love.

Quigley is the family name from which I come. Although I did not know you personally, all our struggles and dreams were probably similar. Those were stolen from you, and I will do what is in me internally to make people more aware of the global environment which they live in and all the historical events in our past (ex. 9/11). We have the ability to change the future; through technology and education, we can achieve so many things.

R.I.P., Patrick. May your friends and family relish all the time they spent with you and that your story will be told again and again. You will never die in the eyes and hearts of loved ones, for your life is a commodity that last forever.  You were so many things to so many people. You will be inspiration to my dreams and my fuel for success.

- Patrick A. Quigley (MN, USA)

I'm a resident of town, and want you to know, even though you don't know me, my prayers will be forever with you and your daughters.

Pat and I worked for the same company, though we never met. Our only communication was via e-mail. I kept the emails for years though I no longer needed them. I was 7 months pregnant on 9/11/01, and I know that Pat's wife was pregnant then as well. I can't help but think of her periodically when I look at my son, knowing that she has a child approximately the same age who will not know her daddy, and an older child who had her daddy taken from her. I hope that they are doing well despite what happened, and are able to enjoy the memories of a great man. The violence of 9/11 was a senseless, cowardly act, and my hope is that none of us ever has to experience anything like it again.
