He leaves his wife of 64 years, Loretta McAlonan; his son Mark McAlonan; and daughters Therese and Maureen; two grand-children Richard and Julia; and his daughter Erin, who proceeded his death.

He met his wife, Loretta, in Denver on a blind date and stayed happily married for 64 years. Goodyear offered him a management position in Salinas, which is how he came to California in 1955. After managing stores for Goodyear, Pat opened his own tire store, Cains Tire, in San Rafael and began a long, successful career. Pat was fortunate to work with all four of his children. Pat was an avid golfer, one of the original members of the Marin Country Club. He raised his family snow skiing and water skiing. He also played football, basketball and baseball. He played softball with his son, Mark, until his late fifties. He was a natural athlete. He loved cave diving in Florida and has been known to hunt and catch alligators. He loved adventure. Pat will be missed by all. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on November 30, 2018 at St. Anthony's Church in Novato.
