Started a carting business in Detroit, Michigan, United States of America with his brother, Jack. This was established through their political connections. Patrick's trade was through retail (dept) stores in Detroit, Michigan, United States of America.

Was a founder of the Democratic Party in Michigan (in the days before the unions). The Dems would go and vote for the weakest Republican candidate in the Primary because the Dems didn't have primary battles and maybe they could win the general election.
