Gone home on February 5th, 2020 just shy of his 90th birthday. Beloved husband of Elizabeth Anne (Mills), father of Michael (Judith) of Kitchener, Margaret Connor (James) of Bath, Anna Schlieper (Mark) of Kanata. Proud grandfather of Robert and Andrew Galt, Luke and Ryan Schlieper. Predeceased by parents Robert John Galt and Laura Emma File and by his siblings Everett, Maurice and Marguerite (Ellis). Pat lived his entire life on the family farm in South Fredericksburgh Township where he was born on St. Patricks Day 1930. He farmed dairy and poultry until his semi-retirement and proudly continued growing crops into his 86th year. Always interested in some version of politics, Pat served as a South Fredericksburgh councillor for over 20 years. He volunteered with Napanee SOS as a driver during his retirement years. He loved local history and was for many years involved in both The United Empire Loyalist Association and the South Fredericksburgh Heritage Committee. His absolute passion, however, was flying airplanes. In his younger years, he flew Harvard aircraft in the Naval Reserve as a member of Squadron VC 921 HMCS Cataraqui Kingston and attained the rank of flight lieutenant. Pat will be remembered by those who knew him well as hardworking and as always up for a challenge and an adventure. Arrangements have been entrusted to Wartman Funeral Home – Napanee Chapel and in keeping with the wishes of Pat’s family, there will be a private family service held at a later date. Memorial donations can be made by cheque or credit card to Lennox & Addington County General Hospital Foundation or to Ontario SPCA of Lennox & Addington.
